All about our Hand-Crafted Hardwood Floors, Part 1

Colonial plank floorsAt Colonial Plank Floors, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful, hand-crafted hardwood plank floors. Nearly all of our plank floors come prefinished and can be utilized in a variety of different styles, from colonial to contemporary. We also offer a weathered style, which is great for beach houses, lofts, and homes with pets and active family members.

The planks used in our flooring can be up to 13 feet in length. Once installed, they will slightly darken, and the graining will become more robust as they age. Each hand-crafted plank goes through 10 woodworking steps with traditional hand tools and is matched against a master plank to ensure they will perfectly fit together. When shopping our plank floors, you can choose the wood species, edge treatments, and level of texture and distressing to create a flooring style that is truly your own.

When crafting our hardwood plank floors, we primarily use rustic white oak and wide red oak materials. We also have other species available, such as rustic cherry, walnut, and poplar. Once you’ve determined the wood you want to be used, you can then choose from three different edge treatments: square and softened edging, live edging, and hand-cut edging. Distressing can also be applied to add a rustic, aged look to your plank flooring.
