Carlisle Wide Plank Floors is a leading specialist in wide plank hardwood flooring. Carlisle offers a wide range of flooring choices, from unfinished or prefinished hardwood flooring, and new or reclaimed flooring in a variety of woods including chestnut, heart pine, maple and oak wood flooring.

Carlisle's distressed wood flooring is created one board at a time using a variety of techniques to achieve a look that is centuries old:

  • Hand-scraped edges. Each wood plank is distressed by gently scraping the edges, recreating the centuries-old process of smoothing the transitions in the flooring.
  • Hit or miss. Adding saw swirl markings, or kerfs, that replicate the marks of early sawmills.
  • Watermill. With the watermill technique, boards are distressed by adding saw marks and then softening the texture to recreate the look of boards rough sawn at riverside water mills.
  • Footworn. This technique recreates the distinctive undulating patterns that occur when floors are walked on and softer grains are worn away to reveal denser grains beneath.
  • Brushed. This unique treatment uses specially designed brushes to de-gloss and unsmooth boards, giving them a soft and gently worn texture.

A variety of other distressed and new wood flooring.
