Antique heart pine is one of our most popular woods because of its gorgeous color tones. The colors range from a creamier pinkish-tan on the sapwood to rich golds, oranges and reds found in the heartwood. This beautiful natural wood can also incorporate seafoam green shades because of the patina. A timeless choice for old buildings and new, our antique reclaimed heart pine flooring will complement the accent colors and decor in your home. With tight grain patterns and growth rings, this reclaimed wood pairs well with modern or turn of the century style homes.Heart pine floors are the heaviest and hardest softwood in the world, ensuring long-term durability. With a Janka rating of 1,225, heart pine is softer than red oak and white oak but harder than walnut or maple, a great option for your floors!
While it was widely used throughout our history for traditional flooring, construction and dock pilings, reclaimed heart pine remains the timber of choice for many. During the industrial revolution, old growth heart pine was sourced from longleaf pine trees and southern yellow pine trees. Today, heart pine is reclaimed predominantly from old buildings, old trees and warehouses.
We do not grade our heart pine this way. Our wide plank options are endless. We source only the highest quality of wood in countless varieties to meet your interior design goals!
