Provenza Heartland Reclaimed floors feature FSC certified recycled materials from old barns, sheds, fences, and other buildings
destined for demolition. These materials from America's heartland find new life in flooring, and are rich in natural patina and timeless
from America's Heartland
At Provenza Floors we manufacture most of our reclaimed solid plank wood flooring in random widths.
Reclaimed materials are naturally random in size by nature. The reclaimed timbers and boards from America’s venerable old
barns, mills and factories produce in the reclamation process, every imaginable width and length lumber. Milling the flooring to each
board’s maximum practical width and length allows us to achieve the best yield and subsequently helps keep the price down.
Random width flooring most closely reproduces the look of Early American plank flooring, manufactured prior to the Victorian period.
Up to that time flooring was manufactured in random widths, (often by hand) for much the same reason as earlier stated… to maximize
yield from the timber being processed and to keep cost down.
Somewhere in the process, between tastes of that day, clever salesmanship and the flooring industry’s decision to maximize yield by
producing fixed width, the “standard” from the late 19th Century through the 20th Century became flooring of 2½" and then 2¼" widths,
although wider plank flooring has regained popularity in recent years.
Our reclaimed flooring is offered in a wide range of practical options, from our standard RW3"-6", to RW5"-8", RW7"-10" and limited
quantities of 11" and wider. Each order is shipped random width, (typically 4 widths, ie: 5", 6", 7", 8") with a tally showing linear
footage and the square foot quantity of each width in the shipment.
If your design calls for a reclaimed, rustic, natural, distressed or character grade flooring, consider solid random width wood flooring
from Provenza Floors and know that you have selected a traditional wood flooring manufactured in an historic and yet timeless process.
Provenza Heartland Reclaimed floors exhibit a rich, deep patina that is achieved only by many years of aging in the environment of a bygone era.
