Ash Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring

Jewett Farms + Co’s Ash hardwood flooring features a coarse grain that is similar to Oak but the colors are quite different. The natural color of Ash sapwood is light, almost white. The heartwood can be a number of different colors including grey, light brown and pale yellow. Ash hardwood has a uniform grain which creates a consistent appearance in the flooring planks.

Ash has a rich history that involves ancient mythology. The Norse believed that the Ash tree supported the heavens while its roots traversed the underworld. British folklore tells of the healing and protective properties of Ash.

Jewett Farms + Co offer both select and character grade Ash floors as well as several cut options (plainsawn, riftsawn and quartersawn) from our New England headquarters. Ash hardwood flooring is extremely durable, so it can be used in higher traffic areas with less worry about damage and wear. It has excellent shock resistance and there is little movement in performance.

New Hardwood Flooring Options

Select Grade Flooring

Select grade flooring planks have a strong uniformity of color and pattern; each plank will blend well with its neighbor. Natural color and grain pattern come through to show the woods specific characteristics but the planks will lack any obvious blemishes or defects. Select grade is a combination of sapwood and heartwood that shows some knots, streaks and open grain patterning such as swirls and burls.

Character Grade Flooring

Character grade flooring planks show more of the natural characteristics of the wood such as knots and color variations. A character grade floor will have a more varied appearance from plank to plank and will include light and dark colors, knots, streaks and wormholes. The finished look is more natural and less uniform than a select grade floor.

Sawing and Cutting Options

All of our wide plank flooring have multiple sawing options available. Choose from Plain Sawn, Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn.
