A Bold Material Choice Centuries in the Making.

Ark processes, warehouses and manages millions of square feet of Antique Heart Pine, the foremost grade of reclaimed Southern Yellow Pine. It is, quite literally, the wood that built the factories that sparked America’s Industrial Revolution.

The choice of our reclaimed wood is more than an expression of aesthetics, a nod to history, or a commitment to sustainable practices. Even after hundreds of years, every board exudes  vitality and inspires emotion.

Ark’s wood delivers consistent, predictable quality… at a comparable or lower cost than other premium architectural products.

Can Old Wood Really Be Better Than New?

BEAUTIFUL SURFACES BORN

OF DEEP ROOTS.

‘Aged in place’ for centuries, Ark's treasured wood boasts tight vertical grain and surfaces that reflect a deep, resinous sheen.

 

Our proprietary wood selection, milling and coating processes ensure consistency of surface from board to board and panel to panel. Choose from a variety of tints, tones and finishes to enhance the beauty of any design.

STRENGTH & STABILITY

CUT FROM A DIFFERENT ERA.

Ark's old-growth wood is nearly twice as hard as new growth, strong as cast iron of similar dimension and comparable to White Oak and Honduran Mahogany.

 

Highly stable and resistant to shrink, warp, moisture and rot, it's no wonder those first industrialists spec'd this prized material all those years ago.

REVEAL THE PAST,

ENLIVEN THE PRESENT.

Ark’s processes enable us to strike the perfect balance of clear boards and those with ‘reveals’ – nail marks, stains and bolt holes that uncover this wood’s landmark place in history.

 

Our wood retains these subtle accents while ensuring that all environmental impurities and gross imperfections have been removed. So you are free to imagine it’s past, and re-imagine it’s future, for your next design.

ENSURE TOMORROW, 

RECLAIM TODAY.

Designed from materials that would otherwise enter the waste stream, our products are the ultimate carbon sink.

 

Building with Ark reduces embodied carbon emissions, logging, deforestation and achieves a carbon footprint 10x smaller than when building with virgin lumber.

Stay up to date.
