Reclaimed wood has become popular recently and for very good reasons. It is old wood that has been repurposed by re-milling to create flooring for your home. Much of this salvaged wood comes from old-growth timber, which is no longer available.
Old-growth timber is full of unique properties not found in new wood – the feel of age and the rustic character of reclaimed wood cannot not be replicated in new products. Salvaged wood is also environmentally friendly.
Buying tip: When purchasing reclaimed wood make sure it has been kiln-dried.
