This rustic hardwood collection features individually scraped, 5”-wide planks, and is made with domestic species at three U.S. manufacturing facilities. American Scrape comes in either 3/8” engineered hickory planks, or 3/4” solid hickory or oak. Both collections offer ten regionally inspired colors and a lifetime warranty, which reduces the environmental impact of replacing or remodeling floors in the future.

This tongue-and-groove, wide-plank flooring is healthy for both your home and the environment. An FSC-certified, rapidly renewable, strand bamboo wear layer covers an FSC- and CARB II-certified eucalyptus plywood core, yielding a stable, lightweight product that’s 160 percent harder than oak. A zero-VOC, hardwax oil finish ensures better indoor air quality, durability and simple maintenance. Vantage II comes in smooth or wire-brushed texture options.

This wide plank flooring collection is made in the U.S. from domestic eastern white pine. The 11”-wide planks come in solid wood construction, and in lengths from 3 to 14’. The four organic colors, ranging from dark grey to nutty brown, are finished with Carlisle Custom Coat, a pre-finish with no measureable VOCs. Carlisle recycled four million pounds of wood in 2012, which was turned into wood pellets used for heating.
