Reclaimed wood floors is our specialty. We supply rustic oak, rustic pine, rustic wormy chestnut. All reclaimed from 100 to 200 year old homes, buildings and small factories. These homes and buildings are mostly from the Shenandoah Valley area.Anywhere from an old log house, an old timber framed house to a factory that was used to do vinegar processing or a barn that was used by farmers to store their hay and farm animals.
We service most all of the eastern US including metro DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland areas. We coordinate with architects building contractors, flooring installers down to the homeowner who knows what they want anywhere from small backwood cabins to multi-million dollar custom homes.
- All of our barns that are salvaged produce beautiful log and beam materials perfect to be re-sawn into flooring. Also occasionally we obtain whats called trash floor which is 2 inch floor originally put into the barns for flooring.
- Log houses particularly are where we find the reclaimed and rustic floors that produce an original patina hard to obtain from anywhere else. From these antique floors comes the most desirable wood to either be resurfaced or laid as is to meet your desire for either rustic, dirty faced or beautifully finished flooring.
- From some small factories we reclaim whats called dirty faced floor used to put back in restaurants, game rooms, lofts of new or old log cabins and is always one and a half to two inch thick. Most always cleaned up or lightly sanded so as to keep its original patina.
There are many names for the reclaimed floor. Original flooring that comes from an old house in its original condition is mostly desired by so to speak purists. That is people who want their floor to look like it did when you walked into a house 150 to 200 years ago.
Remilled Old Floor: This is flooring that was in the original condition 150 to 200 years ago but a planing mill has reconditioned it and it lays like new floor but has the old patina on it. Which would be the most desirable for persons who are not altogether purist but prefer the original floor.
Resawn Floor: This floor would come from 150 to 200 year old logs or beams from barns or log and timber frame reclaimed houses. It might also include some recovered lumber, recovered from old timber never used before such as wormy chestnut or oak found below water or on the ground timbered out quite some time ago.
Skip Planned: This would be any antique floor or boards run through a planner and just barely touched so the rough sawn marks would show where it had been sawn but sized strict enough where it could then be processed by a flooring molder so it can be used for flooring or paneling.
Dirty Faced: This floor would be or represent flooring that perhaps came from an old factory, barn threshing floor or tobacco warehouse.
Hand Scrape: This would be any floor mentioned above only with original hand planned or recently hand planed to imitate the original.
There are many other names for these floors depending on color put on them or how much they are conditioned but for the most part these are the only kinds of floor you can buy in the reclaimed business.
