About us

The Antique Oak Flooring Company is a family-run business with Cornish heritage and almost a working lifetime steeped in the reclamation and re-use of antique and reclaimed flooring. Our products are used for period and historic restoration, and all manner of commercial and specialist projects.

We work with architects, specifiers, designers, specialist conservation companies and private customers. We welcome all enquiries ranging from a few patching boards to container loads of reclaimed flooring for export.

We are proud to announce the opening of our new depot in Ashford, Kent. Considerable investment has been made to further expand the success of our operations. This facility proudly boasts 10,000 sq feet of warehousing, mill and workshops, and an exciting new showroom/gallery.

Sourcing the right wood

Our source of material for domestic renovation is UK demolition. We also actively pursue the purchase of reclaimed options from Spain, France, Belgium, Turkey, Eastern Europe and the United States.

We target our acquisition for correct timber type, correct timber grade, and dimensional suitability.

In-depth knowledge

Our in-depth knowledge of UK building programmes from the early 18th century right up to the 50’s and 60’s means our timber flooring specialists can advise on suitability and application.

As specialists in reclaimed flooring and timber, we supply local, national and international demands. Large samples of our range of reclaimed and newly produced flooring can be viewed at our gallery.

The beauty of reclaimed wood

With the rise in mass produced veneer-based mainstream flooring products from the Far East, our clients are enthusiastic in their pursuit of more selective and interesting proposals.

The benefits of using reclaimed timber and flooring are as wide and variable as the stock available. Ecological and environmental concerns recommend its use, whilst in restoration work it is often demanded. More and more discerning clients are attracted by the appeal of using reclaimed timber with its character, patination and depth of colour, to benefit traditional or contemporary design schemes.

Speak to an expert

Our staff freely advise on all technical issues, including application, performance, sub-floor suitability, installation and finishing.

We welcome clients by appointment to the new complex, and London to Ashford is 16 minutes via the high speed rail link, plus we can offer collection and return from the station.
