Chic Chestnut Flooring

Our Chic Chestnut flooring is crafted from authentic reclaimed barn boards. This reclaimed wood often called “wormy” chestnut is extinct and is no longer available as a fresh sawn wood. It contains distinguishing character marks such as nail holes, knots and its famous insect traces, with color tone variations that range from a light golden brown to a dark brown aged patina. It is a rare and rich wood that offers charm and exquisite beauty.

All our orders are custom made. Please call us to discuss options, and see our “specifications” tab below for standard options.

Acclimation

We recommend installation by a qualified professional contractor. Although our wood is kiln dried for maximum stability, all reclaimed wood must be acclimated in the space where it will be installed prior to being installed. The acclimation time varies in different geographic locations, however 1 – 2 weeks is recommended.

SOLID WOOD FLOORING:

  • Subfloor: We recommend exterior grade plywood in a 5/8”-3/4” thickness. Make sure your subfloor and any other materials such as a concrete slab or joists are also acclimated. There should not be more than a 4% variation between the moisture content of your floor and the subfloor materials at the time of installation. If you are installing over a slab, we recommend two 1/2” layers of plywood screwed together. If your height allowance prohibits this method, please call us so we can advise you of your different options.

  • Nail Down: Our 3/4” floors can be installed using a standard floor nailing machine that uses staples or cleat type nails.

Finishing

One of the most desirable features of owning an antique wood floor is the rich, beautiful patina that has developed naturally over many years. In appreciation of this inherent beauty we recommend that you do not stain your floor. We will be happy to recommend a suitable natural finish to suit your specific needs.
