Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring
For years we created relationships with Sawyers and Mills in order to secure the very best hardwoods from the finest growing climates. These are people who contribute to our ecological image and ambition of producing America’s finest Hardwood Flooring from forests grown and supervised in a thoroughly sustainable approach. We consider these Artisans to be a branch of our business family. Almost all American hardwood trees are very adaptive. These trees can be found everywhere from Canada to Florida. However, they are grown primarily in New England, the upper Midwest, the Ohio River Valley, and portions of the Appalachians due to the weather and environment. These locations allow tighter, denser grains and finest beauty for woodworking, cabinetry, and especially wide plank flooring.
Types of Wide Plank Hardwood Floors:
- Red Oak
- White Oak
Wide Plank Pine Flooring:
“The Wood that Spawned the American Industrial Revolution.”
- Eastern White Pine
- Long Leaf Heart Pine
FSC Antique Reclaimed Wood Floors
We believe it is essential for our clients to understand that not all antique wood is acquired, treated, and resold with the same technique. We use material suppliers thathaved worked to accomplish two prominent Forest Stewardship Council awards: 100% Antique Reclaimed Certification and Chain of Custody Certification. This signifies that each board is an authentic antique and has been in their care from the dismantling process to the moment it is resold.

It does not matter if it is the foot-worn appearance of an 18th-century pub you are looking for, the rough-sawn (unfinished lumber) flooring surface found in a pre-Civil War warehouse, or maybe just the gently worn charm of a select old Cape Cod floor, our team can re-establish these and several more centuries-old appearances with an assortment of handmade surface treatments, each bringing its own distinguishing personality to your floor. Auten Wideplank Flooring offers hand-scraped, hand-planed, foot-worn, saw kerf, hit or miss, and wire brushed. Two or more of these treatments can be pooled for an even more exclusive look.
