Vonderosa Black Oak wide plank flooring is our premium product when you want the look of authentic reclaimed New England hardwood.
Black Oak is a beautiful, durable wood, with exceptional natural character. Vonderosa has developed special technology which allows us to fill and stabilize voids, resulting in the wide width, long board look – which is the hallmark of a fine floor.
Black oak is one of three or four subspecies of red oak, but it’s a specific species and it kind of has a tough time in the woods. And that’s what gives it all this character.
We work closely with mills and loggers to procure black oak logs. In the Northeast when a mill runs red oak lumber, there is a small amount of black oak in the run. That is because red oak family consists of four subspecies. Black Oak is a subspecies of the Red Oak Family. The Black Oak log produce the finest character grade flooring.
As far as we know, no one else in the industry takes the time and energy to work with mills to specifically separate the black oak logs for our production.
Vonderosa Black is reminiscent of the look of a floor that is resawn from 200 year old beams that might have been part of the many numbers of barns and mill buildings that are scattered around New England.
Vonderosa Black Oak Wide Plank Flooring will add a truly reclaimed look to any room in your home.
