Real Antique American reclaimed barn wood flooring, in oak.
The appeal of antique prefinished reclaimed barn wood flooring is in its characteristic nail holes, color variations, and old growth grain patterns. These create visual and tactile appeal, resulting in never-ending intrigue to what is such a large part of a room's appearance.
In addition to being a reclaimed antique lumber company and an American barn company, we are a vintage wood floor company.
Where do reclaimed wooden floors come from?
Our antique wood which is recovered primarily from century-old barns in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Kentucky, becomes our Timeworn oak plank flooring which is endowed with a naturally rich patina created by countless decades of sun, wind, and rain. Each plank is different due in large part to the placement of each plank on the structure and the sun and weather it endured for generations. Transforming this precious material into your authentic antique reclaimed barn wood floor is a labor intensive and time-consuming process, but worth it. To preserve the original face of this remarkable barn wood we use special milling and hand working techniques that maintain all aspects of its distinctive character, including the original saw marks, color variations, random knots, nail holes, texture, and height variations. When we reclaimed antique barns that are no longer suitable or safe and scheduled for demolition, the interior floorboards, joists, farmhouse planks and beam timbers make the perfect material to produce our high quality reclaimed barnwood floors.
Two Surface Options
Timeworn Original Face. Our Timeworn original face leaves the patina and deep grain and surface texture largely intact. This distressed flooring is done naturally, not by hand. We will never hand distress flooring to be something it is not. Most clients choose a simple water based polyurethane clear finish. Others have us mix a custom tinted finish to darken, or even a pre-bleach to lighten the resulting look of the floor.
Heirloom Face. Our Heirloom smooth face retains the checks, cracks, nail holes and tight grain as in the original face but is smooth since the original face has been removed for our Timeworn floor. This is the floor that often sees a custom tinted finish to further enhance the character of the grain. We restore the natural beauty of this material by gently re-milling the top surface to reveal its gorgeous grains, naturally opulent hues, and age-old charm while leaving the hallmark checking and historic defects intact. This classic reclaimed wood flooring offers unique character and smooth surface texture. And of course, like all of our floors, it's made by us, here in Orange County, CA.
