Salvaged from industrial buildings, Foundry Maple celebrates wear and tear from years in manufacturing and building facilities. "Rock Island Foundry Maple” is from a building in Illinois while "Alabama Foundry" was sourced in an old furniture factory. Full of texture, and on occasion original paint, Foundry Maple can be put back into service with little or no finishing. (Some of this material is a mix Maple and Oak in a range of narrow widths.) Limited quantities are available.

One of the many reasons we love foundry maple is that each location we salvage it from has it’s own quirky character such as lengths as short as 6”. Whoever purchased and installed these floors were people after our own hearts… waste not, want not.

*May include original end-matching depending on the batch. A small percentage of material may include square ends resulting from defecting.

Finishes

Most of our solid and eco-friendly engineered flooring is available unfinished or prefinished. Prefinish includes hand applied oil and wax or factory applied aluminum oxide which requires a micro bevel on each piece of flooring. Scratches that occur on a floor finished with oil and wax can often be lightly sanded out. Reapply oil and wax after sanding and let cure.

  • Spills of any kind should be cleaned up immediately.
  • Broom clean for regular maintenance.
  • Consult finish manufacturer for appropriate cleaning instructions.
