These limited edition oak planks are aptly named due to a rugged coat of black paint, which when removed reveals a rich, tan-colored oak. Available as flooring or paneling in a variety of options: skip-planed on the painted side with just a suggestion of tan; fully planed thereby removing all black paint but revealing a deeper patina than fresh oak and a highlighted grain; or, with the black paint fully intact. The Black & Tan mixture will offer the most visual impact. Black & Tan is created through specialized surfacing of reclaimed Oak planks, which naturally vary in thickness. Full of texture and rich grain patterns, with few small sound knots. Because of these natural variations, no two planks are alike, each one having a different level of surfacing and eco-friendly black paint visible. Careful sanding on the jobsite is the best way to fine-tune the appearance of your floor – feel free to ask one of our wood experts about the best way to achieve your visual goals.
True to Pioneer Millworks’ environmental commitment, the black paint was traced back to its original source and was found to be an environmentally friendly, waterborne polymer. It is a non-toxic, non-flammable, solvent free, low VOC waterproof coating used in agricultural settings and safe for use around farm animals.
