The following is a comprehensive list of the different types of antique wood flooring that we offer.

Soft woods


Pine is a high value pick. It offers stability, an open grain, and provide a fine and gentle aesthetic. Our pine comes in stain grade or distressed, and has more knots and knot holes than hardwoods.


Hemlock again comes in stain grade or distressed/rustic, according to your tastes. This is a unique wood, with a medium to open grain, and is more pronounced than pine.

Distressed Heritage

Made from the exterior of old barn boards, Distressed heritage boards are lightly planed, then lightly sanded after installation. This process leaves intact a deep brown patina, lots of character, and wild texture.

Rustic Heritage

Rustic Heritage comes from the interior surface of the same boards that would be Distressed Heritage. This option in slightly more tamed and has more of a sawn look. It comes un-planed on top, and is lightly sanded in place after installation.

Heritage Grades

Primarily from the exterior of siding from structures, Heritage grades are a mix of softwoods, and boast rich, deep natural patina. These are very rustic, with some minor height differences between boards. This is the ideal choice if you appreciate natural beauty and variety. 

What is the diiference between "rustic" and Distressed"? The terms "stain grade",  "distressed", and "rustic", describe what part of the barn these floor boards were salvaged from. ​ Stain grade refers to wood boards that were sliced out of the support beams from the barn. Since these are newly milled, stain grade offers less patina than distressed or rustic, and has a cleaner, more uniform colour, which is ideal for staining ​ Distressed and rustic boards are simply boards used for the walls. The "distressed" look comes from the boards facing the exterior, which were weathered by the elements. ​ "Rustic", on the other hand, are the interior face. You often find saw marks on rustic side boards.

The distressed and rustic heritage grade wood flooring can be processed to varying degrees of texture. The following pictures show how different levels of plaining will effect the texture and patina.
