Grading is the designation of the relative characteristics and quality of a piece of wood or other manufactured wood product like flooring. The lumber standards are different from the flooring standards that determine grade but are the most alike when it comes to appearance. Most domestic flooring is available in three grades: Select (clear and somewhat uniform), #1 Common (variable in color) and #2 common (variable in color and with knots). Many flooring manufacturers create their own descriptive names (like “country” or “tavern” for #2 common) rather than using lumber terminology. This allows for grading standards that are more inclusive.
A designation given to lumber indicating the amount of flaws and knots typically found in the wood. Most builders recommend using # 1 grade wood for building decks. Also, the surface of the ground.
a relative position or degree of value in a graded group; "lumber of the highest grade"
