Why Buy Reclaimed Floorboards?
Our Wide Oak Planks are sourced from original antique buildings. This is made possible due to oak being extremely hardwearing and resistant to scratching as it is very dense. This allows oak to be re-used and re-purposed repeatedly.
We obtain the oak (from a tree or antique building), then the large sections are machine sawn into strips, roughly sized for floorboards. These strips are then fed through the planer, to ensure they are the same width and thickness. The planed strips are then placed into another machine where they are sanded as fine as possible. They then are brushed, sanded, and finished by hand with the original face and patina.
We hand sand and brush each individual board to maintain its authenticity, and to keep its unique natural markings, as this is one of the properties that makes oak so desirable.
