Reclaimed from old barns and rural structures throughout American forests, antique oak is one of our most popular woods and is created through a classic blend of American red and white oak.
Reclaimed antique oak combines the warm tones of red oak and golden light brown hues of white oak. Different lighting conditions can also change the appearance of the color shades. Many times, the lighting will give the wood a honey or orange glow. Varying accent color tones within your home will pair well with the subtle glimmer that the oak floor provides. The varying grain patterns give these reclaimed wood floors a unique and attractive look that pairs well with any interior design application.
Antique oak floors are harder than heart pine, yet softer than hickory, which makes them a great option for wide plank flooring. To enhance the natural appeal, we use wire brushing and hand-scraping techniques to create a distressed surface on the hardwood floors.
White oak is a mainstay and has been widely used throughout history as a cornerstone wood for almost any application imaginable, primarily furniture making because of how easy it was to acquire. Today, oak is plentiful and can be found throughout many regions in the United States. Due to the age of the antique wood, it will occasionally acquire a rich patina on the original surface. Patina is commonly found on old barns, granaries and sawn barn wood. Original saw marks are also visible on the wide plank reclaimed hardwood flooring. Countless generations have taken shelter from the elements under white oak timber frames because of its trusted durability.
