Why Wide Plank Flooring?
When Dale Carlisle discovered Pine wood floor planks at a local sawmill, a passion was born. One flooring project turned into many and soon a specialty flooring company was the result. One advantage to offering wide plank flooring instead of traditional width options is that it allows more of the floor to be visible. Less seams means more beautifully finished floor surface. Wide planks also allow more of the hand milled wood's character to show and make your rooms seem more open and spacious. All of this comes without any compromises on the type of space the flooring can be used for. Commercial spaces, old restored homes and new homes with radiant floor heating are all candidates for wide plank floors. In addition, the wide planks floors are healthier for your home, your family and the environment due to the care Carlisle uses in choosing trees, maintaining forests and selecting and using floor finishing products.
From the Forest to Your Front Door
One of the practices that sets Carlisle apart from other wood floor companies is their commitment to the sustainability of the forests and taking care of the environment that produced those trees. Carlisle selects only a few timber suppliers, and physically selects the best trees to ensure that younger trees have time to grow and mature and that whole forests are never harvested. Another option Carlisle offers is for customers to purchase reclaimed flooring. Carlisle offers antique floor planks for use in your home or business that are carefully chosen and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as 100% Post-consumer Reclaimed Antique Wood. Carlisle will even supply the buyer with a complete documented history of their purchased wood. So whether you decide to purchase custom flooring, Carlisle's reclaimed wood or even their selective offering of prefinished or engineered flooring, you can be certain that each piece of wood received the same care and attention. It’s this commitment to quality that will make your floor stand out and last for years, and even decades, to come.
The Choice That Best Fits Your Space
Carlisle offers a range of wood choices, finishes and extra touches that helps ensure your floor will be unlike any other floor you'll find. Their wood choices include pine, cherry, oak, walnut and hickory. Customers can also choose pre-finished floors that are still produced in small batches with the same personal touch Carlisle customers have come to expect, or engineered floors that are high quality and long lasting. Finishing options on Carlisle custom floors include Tung oil and Water Based Poly that allows for a durable yet naturally colorful finish. No matter which option you choose, Carlisle oversees the complete creation of your product from wood selection to individual woodworker attention to each plank to careful and complete shipping options. Other items such as wood planked stairs, patterned floors, custom beams and reclaimed nails can also be purchased through Carlisle’s many showrooms, located throughout the United States, or through their website.
Choosing a flooring option for your home or commercial space doesn't have to be a headache. In fact, when you choose Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, you may find yourself excited by the process of choosing, receiving and even installing your new flooring.
