The DuChateau Chateau Collection Hardwood Flooring is a great example of the highest quality hardwood flooring products that is possible due to its use of natural methods like Hard Wax oil finishing, distressing, hand sculpting and hand scraping, brushing, smoking and carbonization. All these techniques combine to create a superior authentic vintage-looking floor.
DuChateau Chateau Collection creates wood flooring meticulously crafting techniques and styles following the old-world traditions offering the same look of a solid floor with the benefit of quality construction and stability. When DuChateau floors are installed they are indistinguishable from solid hardwood floors used in Europe for centuries.
The Chateau Collection styles include: Basal, Bravone, Domenico, Lyon, Olde Bern, St. Luc, Touraine, Villandry, White Oiled, White Patina, you take the world’s finest products and make them your own, that’s signature style.
The Chateau Collection Features Water Repellent and Stain Resistant; Treating the wood surface with hard-wax oil creates a water-and stain- adverse barrier, repelling liquids and resisting unwanted staining, such as water, wine, soda, and coffee. The less a floor can absorb, the longer it will last.
Minimal-to-Maintain; Hard-wax oiled floors need only be maintained with periodic oil reapplication to keep this finish looking its best – no need for professional service, expensive equipment, or labor-intensive sanding to ensure proper adhesion.
Easy-to-Repair; Unlike other finishes, touch-ups and repairs on a hard-wax oil floor need not be professionally sanded for a refresh; just reapply and go. Spots and scratches can be minimized with some buffing and a small application of our oil listed on the back.
Integrates with the Wood; Rather than solely building a plastic film on top of the wood surface that can crack with wear, hard-wax oil integrates with the wood, allowing the wood to breathe and move with seasonal expansion and contraction and avoid potential damage.

Lasting Beauty; With proper maintenance and cleaning, a hard-wax oil floor will last a lifetime and will maintain its genuine natural beauty, making re-sanding rarely needed.
Ages Gracefully; Because hard-wax oil allows the wood to breathe, the elegant finish and rich patina underneath will only enhance with time and periodic applications of maintenance oil.
Environmentally Friendly; Hard-wax oil has the most environmentally friendly benefits as a wood finish and contributes to a healthy living environment because it is produced from all-natural ingredients. All DuChâteau® hardwood floors are finished with DuChâteau® Hard-Wax Oil - an all-natural, non-pollutant, non-toxic, VOC-free product with no biocides, no preservatives, and benzene free.
DuChâteau hardwood floors feature an engineered (multi-ply) hardwood construction, consisting of at least two types of different wood products adhered together. The top layer (what you see when installed) offers a highly desired species of wood, like oak, while the bottom substrate layer (what you don’t see when installed) utilizes a fast-growing species.
Manufacturing our floors in this way allows us to harvest trees more sustainably for nearly all of our floors and produce high quality floors with the same robust and luxurious feeling of solid wood flooring. When installed properly, an engineered floor is virtually indistinguishable from a solid wood floor – the very same look and feel with the added stability in a far more environmentally-conscious way.
