Ash is a durable and dimensionally stable hardwood used in the manufacture of baseball bats, hockey sticks, furniture and Chelsea Plank Flooring. Ash hardwood flooring has a very similar appearance to oak hardwood flooring. Both, Ash and Oak have large swirling grain that show off the stain color. Ash is good choice for hardwood flooring. Ash wood has a Janka hardness factor of 1320, which is harder than Red Oak, but softer than Hickory and Maple. Ash flooring has a very light natural color that can brighten up almost any home. It has ample character throughout creating a beautiful floor with interest.
Aside from durability, Ash plank flooring is also "green". Currently, the Emerald Ash Borer (an insidious insect from China) is decimating the Norther White Ash tree population. Though not "Reclaimed", we are "Claiming" Ash trees and converting them into beautiful plank flooring before the Emerald Ash Borer can convert the trees into fire wood.
