I am new to this forum. Total noob seeking help from the community.

About a couple of years ago, we bought a home with hardwood installed in the living area. Unfortunately the previous owner did not leave any boxes behind. A few small extras are all that he left in the garage. I have tried numerous hardwood floor stores in the area. But no luck so far.

I can't figure out how to add images to this post. So I have posted some pics to https://www.dropbox.com/s/zm63aq7nkillxu1/hardwood.zip?dl=0. I also have some cross-section pics.

What I know so far:
1. It is a 9/16" thickness (as per measurements by some stores).
2. Its 5" wide
4. Its brown in color
5. Its hand scraped.
5. Veneer is 5.2 mm'
6. Number of layers: from what I can tell it has 8 layers including the veneer.
7. Wood type: Almost all stores I went to identified the wood type to be Birch.

I need to buy some matching hardwood. Will anyone be able to identify the wood for me? Please let me know if you would like any further information. Thank you in advance.

Could be Naturally Aged flooring out of California.

Thank you Ken. We live in California.

Would you have any idea of what brand it could be? Some suggested Lauzon because of the veneer thickness. But I could not find a match on their website.

Naturally Aged.

They sold a lot of that 10 years ago . They're in Simi Valley last I knew. Whether or not it's available I don't know.

I had some luck this week. The previous owner of my home responded that the hardwood installed is Bellawood and was installed in late 2004. woodtype is confirmed to be birch.

Anyone know if the original manufacturers: Bellawood / Lumber Liquidators will have stock of something produced in 2004? I know its a long shot, but hoping for a miracle.

Also any ideas on a equivalent with 5" width, 9/16 thickness, random lengths, woodtype birch, close enough shade as mine?

Lots of manufacturers still make a product like that. The original probably won't match color wise just because yours has aged..UV ...wear and tear. It will be the color and milling (T&G) and height that matter most.

Turns out that the previous owner made a mistake in the information he gave me. He responded with the name of the store had bought from. The store confirmed that the floor was put in 2004 and the engineered hardwood was " Casabella Reinzo maple" hardwood floor. The dimensions are 9/16 * 5" * variable lengths.



My previous owner told me "Bellawood" when it was "Casabella". I guess he made a mistake since it was put 14 years ago.

Anyone know if Casabella still makes an option similar to my current hardwood dimensions or 9/16 thickness * 5" width?
