The Benefits of Character Wood

Building Reclaimed Heart Pine

Building Reclaimed Heart Pine

Antique wood is an excellent way to enhance the look of your home or office. Whether you’re aiming to revamp your entire floor or add an accent ceiling/wall, authentic wood is a serious attention grabber! At Goodwin, we offer Character Wood, a grade with slight imperfections that makes a statement nonetheless. Character is guaranteed to be a conversation piece for eternity.

Character includes slight imperfections that differentiate every single piece from the rest. Common characteristics include checks, cracks, sap stains, larger and more frequent knots, and a wide variety of color variations. Offered in our River-Recovered® Heart Pine, Heart Cypress, and our Legacy collection. Character is the perfect choice for a natural aesthetic and works in any area.

With the trend of natural products and sustainability on the rise, buyers want to know where their products are coming from. Here at Goodwin, our sustainability starts early on. Instead of throwing out wood with flaws that don’t quite make the clearer grades criteria, we save the wood and categorize it as Character when grading standards are met. We aim to give each handcrafted piece a purpose and new home.

Character Wood is more affordable, too! Other grades, like select and clear have strict grading standards and are harder to acquire. Character wood has many looks and a broader range of characteristics. Grading standards are not as strict, making accessibility easier and more cost-effective.

There are numerous ways to restore your space with Character! We have contributed our Character wood to many different projects, like Cigar City Brewing in Tampa! Whether you want to completely replace your existing floors or add an accent ceiling or wall, Character is a great way to stand out from the rest! Each board is uniquely different than the next, but the final product always blends in beautifully together. Take a look at some of our past projects involving Character wood to see for yourself!
