Diamonds in the Rough (Selecting the wood)
The quality of our reclaimed flooring and our flooring installations is second to none. It starts with our flooring experts selecting the highest quality reclaimed wood available. Then our craftsmen process and re-mill this wood at our state of the art manufacturing facility to turn it into the exceptional finished antique flooring. We create solid and engineered reclaimed flooring from this hand selected wood.
Commitment to quality doesn’t end when we’re done manufacturing the wood flooring. Our expert flooring installation personnel then see that the installation process goes smoothly and overcome any issues as they install the floor. Working closely with the builder or contractors as needed to ensure the final product is exactly what you want.
- Kiln Dried – all of our reclaimed flooring wood is kiln dried to the correct moisture content before we begin the manufacturing process. This ensures a consistent product that adheres to our stringent quality control.
- Wood Grading System – we use a standard grading system that allows us to classify the wood into select and common grades.
- State-of-the-Art Machinery – the mills we use are high tech and allow us to mill the wood to exacting specifications.
- Our Wood Craftsmen – our purchasers, mill workers and our installers are well versed in our pursuit of quality products. Employees are trained in an ongoing effort to keep them up to date on latest milling techniques and installation methods.
By reclaiming and reusing wood from old and dying structures throughout the country, it allows us to keep forests greener by reducing the amount of trees that must be cut down to provide new lumber to the world.
If you’re Green minded then reclaimed flooring is the perfect flooring option for you. Not only will it help you keep your Green commitment but it’ll look exceptional in your home. It’s a win for you and for the world.
These reclaimed woods were usually created using old growth trees many years ago before the effort of conservation came to light. Due to conservation efforts throughout the world, the old trees are rarely cut down anymore. Meaning, much of the premium wood associated with these old growth trees cannot be obtained. But by reclaiming this wood and lumber from old structures, we can obtain this high quality sought after wood. And then after re-processing it, we can provide it to you in nearly new condition.
Old growth means a denser wood with growth rings much closer to each other. These tight growth rings make for a more vibrant and detailed finished floor in your home. When you want the best, reclaimed flooring is what you’re looking for.
