The Vintage Loft Collection by Real Wood Floors
There's just something about walking onto a wide plank floor. It's a feeling of strength, being cradled, being taken care of. Maybe it's because of a feeling of connection to our past. These beautiful floors were crafted to remind us of reclaimed wood flooring from industrial buildings, warehouses and factories. Wide 8.5" planks have a 4mm wear layer with boards up to 8 foot long. The wood is swept with brush marks to reveal natural grain, and band saw-marks, and is treated with rich multi-toned neutral colors. Warm and welcoming, these floors will remind you of the work and simple life of the past and carry a limited lifetime residential structural, 50 year finish warranty to bring with you into your future.

Fumed - The process of Fuming was accidentally discovered in England in the 1800's when a man noticed darkening of boards stored in his barn. The ammonia from the animal waste had reacted with the tannins in the oak, darkening the color. At the turn of the century, Fuming was brought to America and popularized in the Arts and Crafts movement. Today, white oak is placed in a chamber where ammonia is misted, turning the wood a deep rich color-that goes all the way through the boards! What this means for you is, if you get a deep scratch in your floor, it won't be as obvious because of the consistent, beautiful color that can't be achieved with stain. Teckton Unfinished Fumed European White Oak is available in 8" width.
Carbonized - The process of Carbonizing, or heat-treating wood, originates as far back as the Viking era where wood was burned with fire to increase stability and make it more resistant to rot and fungus. In the 1700's, the Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban flame-charred wood for a blackened effect to better preserve the precious resource. This dramatic technique is used today for more vertical wood such as decorative walls or siding. In a more modern, gentle version for flooring, wood is not burned, but instead heat-treated. It is placed in a chamber and heated to temperatures over 280 degrees celcius causing the sugars in the wood to carbonize into a deep, rich caramel color that also goes all the way through the wood. The heating is stopped before the wood turns black. No chemicals are used. Teckton Unfinished Carbonized European White Oak also comes in 8" width.
