Reclaimed Flooring

Synonymous with Antique Wood, Reclaimed Wood constitutes the majority of the material used in Heartpine Company’s products.

Most of these woods come from an old building that has out lived its time of usefulness, an old barn or even an old fence. Where most may see the structure as dilapidated or “run down”, we see it as a piece of working history that has a story to tell. Heartpine Company possesses a strong passion to find and reclaim this majestic timber, and turn it into an exceptional finished product to meet your design and building needs.

Long Leaf Antique Heart Pine

Heartpine, or commonly referred to as “Old Longleaf Pine” or “The King’s Pine,” is often salvaged from old historic buildings and structures.

The molecular make-up of these timbers is very dense with tight growth rings. Typically, the heartwood bears the hue of a reddish-brown color, that darkens with age. Original longleaf heartpine grew to be three to five hundred years old. One could find these majestic trees from the coast of Virginia to the great state of Texas. These woods have a strength approximating oaks that wears well on floors and millwork. Long leaf antique heart pine flooring not only commands nostalgia in many historical sites but represents great American heritage and tradition.
