Reclaimed Oak Boards: The Perfect Choice For Home Flooring

When it comes to choosing flooring for your home, there are countless options to consider. However, one material that has gained popularity in recent years is reclaimed oak boards. Not only do they add a unique and timeless look to your home, but they also come with several benefits that make them an excellent choice for flooring.

 

What are reclaimed oak boards?

Reclaimed oak boards are planks of wood that have been salvaged from old buildings, barns, and factories that have been demolished or renovated. These boards are then cleaned, sanded, and treated to bring out their natural beauty, character, and strength. Because they have been previously used, reclaimed oak boards often have a patina, grain patterns, and imperfections that give them a rustic and authentic look.

Why choose reclaimed oak boards for home flooring?

Choosing reclaimed oak boards for your home flooring is an eco-friendly choice. By reusing old wood, you are preventing it from ending up in landfills and reducing the need to cut down new trees. Reclaimed oak boards are also carbon-negative, meaning they store more carbon than they emit during production and transportation.

Oak is known for its durability, strength, and resistance to wear and tear. Reclaimed oak boards are even more robust because they have been exposed to natural elements and weathered over time. They are also less prone to shrinkage, warping, and cupping than new oak boards because they have already gone through these processes.

Reclaimed oak boards have a character and charm that cannot be replicated with new wood. Each board has a story to tell, and its imperfections add to its beauty and uniqueness. Reclaimed oak boards come in different colours, textures, and sizes, making them suitable for any design style, from traditional to modern.

Reclaimed oak boards have a timeless appeal that never goes out of style. They add warmth, character, and elegance to any room, and they are suitable for both residential and commercial spaces. Reclaimed oak boards also increase the value of your property and are a wise investment in the long run.

"Excellent product. I would highly recommend the finished article looks great. Even the delivery driver helped unload. I would suggest to anyone buying to order slightly more than you need, my floorer (I think recommend about 4% more than you would need) I would suggest a little more as I got a little close to finish. This was just down to straightining up the ends of the boards."
