Antique White Oak
Elmwood Reclaimed Timber
Antique White Oak flooring has been salvaged from its original use (typically in a barn or other structure in the Midwest or Eastern portion of the United States) and reclaimed for use as flooring. The salvaged wood is sanding smooth, burnished with patina and character, and develops rich, golden-hued color tones. The light tan to golden-brown sapwood of Antique White Oak flooring is lighter than its heartwood. White Oak is a hard and heavy wood, with a medium-bending and crushing strength. It is low in stiffness, but performs very well in steam-bending and has great wear-resistance. While the main characteristic of White Oak is its straight grain, it can also have an irregular or cross-grain.
Wood, which can be removed, reclaimed, and reused, is ultimately biodegradable.
