Why Reclaimed Flooring

  1. 1. Why Reclaimed Flooring?Advantages-Reclaimed softwood or hardwood floors includes: reclaimed European oak, reclaimed Frenchoak, Reclaimed English oak, reclaimed pine, reclaimed pitch pine, reclaimed Douglas Fir,reclaimed, teak, reclaimed strip, and reclaimed parquet. The important point being thatbecause of their age, many years go these old trees and timbers were slow grown timbers, thusthey were and still are tougher and higher quality old wood flooring than the trees growntoday. People ask is a reclaimed flooring strong, will it last? Simply, yes it will and it willcontinue to last. A real solid reclaimed floor is more durable than most new solid hardwoodfloors sold on the market today.All species of reclaimed, antique oak flooring present us with good examples. We hear toomany horror stories at the reclaimed flooring co involving cupping new solid oak flooringimported from abroad mainly China. We hear very few regarding correctly treated, reclaimed &salvaged oak boards. This is because of the correct moisture content within the reclaimedhardwood, antique, salvaged, old oak boards. Wide plank oak flooring can also present moreproblems but if carefully laced by an experienced reclaimed flooring floor fitter, then the risksof cupping are minimal.The quality of these old, antique oak floorboards can be inspected simply by looking into thegrain patterns and tightness within the wood floor. If the wooden oak floor has a dense grainthat feels extremely hard to touch with your finger nail, if the moisture content is between7-10% and if all careful wood floor fitting trade rules (under floor heating included) areconsidered, there should be no problem. Reclaimed hardwood, solid antique oak flooring &under floor heating can present problems if the wood floor is not supplied correctly or thewood floor fitting has been completed incorrectly.
