THE JOY OF RECLAIMATION
RECLAIMED WOOD FLOORING EXPLAINED
Reclaimed wood flooring comes in many many different wood species. As our built heritage in the United Kingdom spans many centuries and during this time woods have been imported from almost every part of the world.
Maple from Canada, Oak, Pitch Pine and Douglas Fir from North America, Jarrah from Australia, Iroko, Sapele and Wenge from Africa to name just a few.
Be it a pier, a Victorian textile mill, a government building or a row of terraced houses. Reclaimed wood can be sourced from a multitude of different places.
Many of the woods found in these old buildings are some of the finest woods ever to be used and not only do we enjoy reclaiming and finding them a new purpose, it is also a responsibility for all of us to make the most of these wonderful old woods.
It is also important to note that not all old wood is good wood and our expertise is in finding and restoring the woods with soul, character and history.
