Making Your River Reclaimed Heart Pine Flooring
The process of making your wood floor begins with searching for logs by diving. Clint Roberts , Todd Holmes, Dave Stone, and Bryan Richards are all certified Master Deadhead Loggers with 40 years of experience between them. We scour the river bottom searching for 250+ year old heart pine logs, beautiful timbers once thought lost to the depths of the river. In the 17th , 18th, and early 19th centuries the most efficient way to transport logs was via rivers. There was very little if any railroad track so most sawmills would strategically locate themselves on or very near a river. That way logs could be floated down river to their sawmill. The logs with the densest heart would often sink to the bottom where they laid perfectly preserved until being discovered by the Three Rivers dive team. We find them and winch them back to the surface. Bringing these magnificent pieces of history back to life. Once the logs are discovered and brought to the surface, they are removed from the river and quickly transported to our sawmill. Each Log is then cut to length and graded for heart diameter and growth ring density. The next step is to load the logs onto the saw deck and saw them into lumber. Clint Roberts and Bryan Richards are the master sawyers for three rivers flooring company. With 45 years experience between them they masterfully turn the heart pine logs into the best possible grade of heart pine lumber. Once the lumber is cut to dimension it is then graded and
stacked. The next step is to dry it in the kiln. Once it is dry it is graded a final time for best face and then sent through the molder to be made into your River Reclaimed Heart Pine Flooring. Your Beautiful and historic floor is now ready to be shipped to your home or business. Along with your River Reclaimed Heart Pine Flooring you will also receive a photo scrapbook. Every scrap book is custom made and unique to the order it accompanies. It includes photos from every aspect of the river reclaimed heart pine flooring process. It tells the story of how your floor came to be. Its also serves as a great tool to help you tell your friends and neighbors about your Piece of History

Because of our reputation as Some of the Best River Loggers in the business we were invited to compete on the television show Ax Men. Captain Clint and the Kraken have represented Three Rivers Flooring Company for the last three years on the show. The show itself is designed to highlight the many dangers involved with the nations most deadly occupation. The Three Rivers crew just wanted to show the world why they are the best river reclaimed heart pine flooring company in the world. They took their never quit attitude, showed up, and delivered. Their first week on set they pulled more logs than any other crew had pulled in an entire season. They helped raise the bar for what river loggers should be. The best part of having our crew on the show has been all of the people its allowed us to meet and tell about river reclaimed heart pine flooring. Many people were unaware that reclaimed heart pine was still a flooring option. Another great part of our participation on this show is that it has allowed us to bring an even more unique product and experience to our customers.
