Antique Heart Pines &
Accessories creates the finest quality custom hard wood flooring.
This means we create your floor to YOUR specifications. This
includes: color, character, size of planks, texture, patina
and so on.
Before we begin your floor, each piece of wood is hand selected.
We use a very stringent culling process where only a small
portion of each batch is chosen. We make these selections
based on color and distinguishing characteristics. Then each
board is custom milled to exact specifications. All of our
wood is kiln dried to a specific moisture content before we
molter (tongue and groove). Kiln drying is the process of
circulating hot, dry air around the wood to achieve a slow
drying process. This prevents cracking and twisting of the
The final process is the painstaking quality of our installations.
The installation and finishing can only be described as the
work of artisans.
It is very important to note that we only install the finest
quality custom flooring. We do not install ordinary hard wood
floors. This was the original vision of our company founder,
Robin Hammond Jones.
Robin was born and reared in Columbia, South Carolina and
attended the University of South Carolina and the Horry-Georgetown
School of Forestry. He was always fascinated by the beauty
of the wood that he found in very old buildings. He began
the study of historical wood and eventually received an archeology
and anthropology license from the state. This certification
allows him to recover wood from rivers and wetlands where
the wood has often been under water for over 200 years. This
reclaimed wood has an incredibly beautiful coloring and cannot
be found in new growth wood.
We are a company that is driven by the passion we have for
the work we do. We consider each of our floors to be a form
of art and a part of history. Thank you for visiting our site.
