Carlisle introduces Watermill collection

Home News Carlisle introduces Watermill collection

Stoddard, N.H.—Carlisle Wide Plank Floors unveiled its Watermill texture for wood flooring, featuring a new process that replicates the look of older floors whose boards were originally rough sawn thru the use of riverside watermills.

By leaving the original saw marks on its timber, Carlisle’s Watermill texture is an authentic reproduction of this process, compared to faux marks put into boards in an obvious pattern. Carlisle’s planks are then individually brushed to soften the texture, while also adding texture to the entire surface creating a more harmonious worn look.

“Our Watermill texture replicates a historic process, allowing us to craft floors with the eternal reminder of a bent tooth in the original sawyer’s watermill saw,” said Chris Sy, national sales director of Carlisle.  “We incorporated the brushing technique afterwards to give the boards a naturally worn look. By doing this you can have a floor that looks 200 years old the day you install it in your home.”

Each custom made Watermill floor will perform the same and have the same life span as all other Carlisle floors, each capable of lasting more than 200 years.
