Heart Pine is a very sought-after variety of pine hardwood flooring. It is quite rare; in fact, a lot of the Heart Pine sold today is reclaimed from older sources. Many of the Heart Pine flooring products at Fantastic Floor are reclaimed from sources dating as far back as the Industrial Revolution. While reclaimed heart pine flooring is most often used in rustic design applications, the material can also be used for more formal or professional spaces as well.

One look at our collection of Heart Pine products and you'll see why it is a species in such high demand. The beautiful brown-orange complexion is mixed with soft yellows and tans. It has a tight vertical grain and occasional bluish-black sap stains that add a nice pop of visual intrigue to the floors.

Heart Pine is also a very dense hardwood flooring material and is naturally resistant to wood rot and boring insects. It has a Janka hardness rating of 1,225 pounds, slightly harder than similar species like Red Oak. Its hardness and density are major factors in making it one of the most durable floors you can buy.

Fantastic Floor features many varieties of Heart Pine, including reclaimed Antique Heart Pine, Wide Plank Pine, both Site Finished and Oil Prefinished, Distressed, Handscraped, Engineered, and Solid.
