Reclaimed Flooring

Sustainable, Distinctive, Durable

The massive oak trees that once filled early American forests were strong, durable, and abundant, making them the preferred choice for building barns and granaries. These mighty oaks are as iconic to America as the barns themselves. Reclaimed flooring is carefully crafted from old barns and other historic wooden structures, including joists, rafters, boards, siding, and floorboards. This flooring retains much of the wood’s original rustic texture while showcasing the underlying timber’s natural beauty. Reclaimed hardwood flooring is not perfect in appearance; it often has knots and holes that add character and tell a story of its past life. 

Recently, reclaimed hardwood has become more popular as people look for environmentally friendly ways to decorate their homes. Using reclaimed wood is a stylish way to reduce waste and show a commitment to conservation. It’s already stood the test of time from its origin and will be a durable and beautiful flooring option for another lifetime.

Fumed Oak Hit-Skip

One of our most popular floors, this is the only non-reclaimed floor in the category that gives you every bit of interest and character of a traditional reclaimed floor. VANTIA’S fumed oak is live-sawn from fully matured, old-growth trees. Its rich brown hues and liveliness come from the fuming process interacting with the natural tannins and sugars of the wood. The subtle texture of hit-skip saw marks brings dimension and interest to your space. This floor is available in comprehensive plank formats as well as random widths.
