This whitewashed reclaimed oak is a great wood for interior flooring, though it can also be used for other interior millwork.
This solid oak flooring option subtly reveals the colors typically seen in oak, but with a whitewash that feels right at home at the beach.
With reclaimed oak there is not even a need to whitewash — it’s naturally beautiful.
Finish and Texture:
This reclaimed oak has a milled face and is finished with a low VOC water-based polyurethane in either a satin gloss or matte finish.
Milled faced boards are sanded smooth, leaving traces of the original face and saw marks. This provides a clean and elegant look, with still a rustic finish.
Oak has a straight grain, but the type of cut can greatly affect the appearance because oak has very large pores. We are using a reclaimed product here, so we cannot always control the cut, resulting in a widely varying grain pattern.
Dimensions and Formats:
This reclaimed oak is available only in solid wood. The thickness is 3/4″ and the plank width is 4.5″ minimum. Standard lengths are 1′ – 7′ but can reach 10′.
Installation methods vary based on wood format and site conditions, but solid wood floors are typically nailed, or nailed and glued, to a plywood subfloor. When the planks are wide, gluing and nailing is the preferred method.
