Inspired by “Granny’s General Store”, this blend of Appalachian hardwoods is bursting with character. We use a random mix of visually stunning boards, with cracks, nail and knot-holes, and original saw kerfs. We hand peg and/or fill select boards for strategic placement in highly visible areas. Your new flooring will come to you ready to install and finish.
When it comes to wood floors, White Oak is truly an American Tradition. Our Old Growth variety offers classic beauty, strength and durability with just the right amount of character. The golden patina is riddled with wonderful chocolate brown knots and small voids…just enough to make it interesting.
Our company specializes in the careful dismantling of old barns, stables, and similar structures. With just a little TLC and finishing, we give the reclaimed old wood and lumber a brand new life! And YOU can reap the benefits of the wood’s 100+ years of strength, beauty, and historic character!
All of our reclaimed wood is sourced from old barns and other antique structures, making it unique in every way. You won’t find anything like this in stores; we hand select your wood from our 7+ acres of inventory.
We work directly with you from the very beginning. Steve wants to get intimate details of exactly what you are envisioning. He sends photos, videos, and even face-times with you to make sure we fully understand what you want. In essence, you are helping in the selection process…choosing species, color, degree of distress, i.e. saw marks, nail holes, knots, cracks, etc. We also send you free samples, so you can touch, feel and smell the wood before you buy it.
All of our products have unique characteristics that cannot be replicated using “new” wood. That’s why our products are gently hand-sanded by our craftsmen in-house, taking care to preserve the historical integrity of the wood. If you opt for hand-sanded wood only, your new flooring will come to you ready to install and finish, or, we will pre-finish it for you. Pre-finishing includes the price of hand-sanding and includes the following:
100% hand-rubbed using Waterlox (a Tung oil based sealer/finish) blended with stain if you wish (see video).
Then we finish it off with 2 coats of Vermont Natural Wood Finish. This gives it the exquisite look and feel you can only get from Historic Flooring. Other options are always available – just ask!
We custom craft your flooring in our East Tennessee facility, and ship it directly to you as soon as the finish dries, eliminating any middle-men and mark-ups. We also send you free samples, so you can touch, feel and smell the wood before you buy it.
We will ship your order to a terminal closest to your home free of charge (to most US locations). If you require home delivery, we can do that for an additional charge, provided a tractor trailer can easily access your home. If you have a business with a forklift, we may be able to deliver at no additional charge. Please call before ordering to confirm your shipping preference. 855-676-4220.

My job was a small one but they treated me like it was a million dollar project. Kept me informed along the way with photos and updates on progress. Love my wood beams! Favorite room in my home.

Steve helped me find some lovely old barn tin for a backyard gazebo roofing project. He cut it to my specs, which allowed me to complete the project without assistance or incurring additional expense. The final result is unique rustic charm! I and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Historic Flooring to a friend.

I have bought from them a couple of times and had a great relationship with them. I expect to do a lot more business.

We were very excited about getting our flooring; I knew we were going to like it. I did not realize we were going to love it.

This company's reclaimed barn tin project really added something extra to the look of our living room and office. Steve also included some beautiful trim for a immaculate polished finish. Easy installation, but would make sure the pieces were cut to exact size.
Teresa R. | Leander, TX
We loved working with Steve and his team. We were able to get custom pieces that gave our new home historical context. We were in awe of Steve's energy and creativity. We would definitely use again.
