Why Choose Floorboards?

Why Choose Reclaimed Floorboards?


Our floorboards are selected only when they are of the highest possible standards for our customers. We ensure that the floorboards you receive can last a lifetime and give you the best quality floortype that money can buy. We believe that floorboards are the way to go in your home, and here’s why. 

Shelf Life 

Floorboards have a much longer shelf life than their counterparts, this is due to our floorboards being high-quality and built to last. If your floorboards eventually begin to lose colour then cheap options such as sanding or staining your floor are available when compared to a carpet which would have to be replaced once damage begins to show. Although floorboards are a larger investment upfront, the benefits far outweigh the costs. Carpet may indeed cost less, but our floorboards will last decades longer with proper maintenance and care. 


Another benefit of floorboards in your home is the improved air quality and general cleanliness that doesn’t come with a carpet covered in dust and other allergens. With our floorboards, allergens and other dangers like tobacco smoke can easily be removed with a mop. This will save you a lot of money in the long run rather than having to invest in a carpet cleaner. Anyone with an allergy or asthma in your home would benefit a lot more from a hardwood floor for the improved air quality and the overall reduction of allergens that won’t get trapped in a carpet. 


Floorboards have a great carbon footprint! They can be recycled, replaced less often, and are made from renewable and natural products. When compared to carpets, which are usually 100% synthetic and usually just end up in a landfill after a few years in someone’s home. Your floorboards will be in your home for decades and when it finally does enter the waste stream, it is fully recyclable to be used another day. 

House value 

Think of our floorboards as a long-term investment. While they may be more expensive when compared to other types of flooring, they have the largest return-on-investment of any flooring. Your house increases in overall value due to the appeal and easy maintenance that comes with a hardwood floor. Your house will be easier to sell when you eventually take this step. This is due to carpets being an acquired taste with so many different colours or designs that won’t appeal to everyone. Floorboards provide a neutral and consistently on-trend flooring option that will be used in interior design for decades to come.

"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."
