Reclaimed Chestnut Plank Flooring

Because Chestnut has become extinct, lumber from this precious species is in very limited supply. This beautiful rare wood is generally recovered from old buildings, farmhouses and barns. We reclaim this tradition-rich hardwood and bring its unique beauty to your home, helping to preserve a beautiful piece of American history one plank at a time.

Antique Chestnut reclaimed wood varies in color from a light brown to a dark chocolate, and commonly contains worm holes, nail holes, discoloration from outdoor elements, and occasional sound knots. Antique Chestnut wide plank flooring will bring a rich, warm, antique feel to any room, making it ideal for dens and libraries. Our Antique Reclaimed Chestnut flooring is kiln dried to 6-8% moisture content for optimal stability.
