Reclaimed wood

 

With our customers’ individual needs in mind, we specialize in the acquisition and processing of reclaimed timber.

The beauty of aged reclaimed wood reflects the mastery of carpenters from centuries past. This raw material possesses aesthetic qualities derived from a distinct philosophy of sourcing and processing, different from contemporary methods. One striking example is conifer wood. In the past, conifer trees were felled without prior resin extraction, resulting in floorboards with exceptional durability and a unique range of colours, ranging from vibrant yellow to deep salmon hues.

The timeless appeal of cladding planks, reclaimed flooring, and antique beams transcends passing trends and evolving architectural styles. One undeniable advantage of choosing our products is that an old wooden floor will always exude a captivating charm and, when made from solid wood, can endure for several centuries. A particularly remarkable item in our selection is bog oak, also known as fossil oak, black oak, or Polish ebony. It is undoubtedly the most exclusive and sought-after European wood. Bog oak is often referred to as the “jewel of carpentry art” due to its eternal nature, symbolizing historical and heritage value for countless generations.

Reclaimed wood is the perfect complement to the period aesthetics of houses with historical architecture and adds a distinctive touch to contemporary and avant-garde interiors.

 The beauty of old demolition wood reflects the carpentry mastership of centuries ago. This raw material owes its aesthetic values to a completely different acquisition philosophy and processing technology than those used presently. The best example is conifer wood. In the past, conifers were felled down as live trees – without prior resin tapping. Thanks to this, the floorboards that we produce from such wood have exceptional durability and unique color – from intensive yellow to deep salmon one. The aesthetics of cladding planks, old floors and demolition beams is resistant to periodical fashions and changing architectonical styles. A doubtless advantage of selecting our products is the fact that old wooden floor will always look very attractively, and when made of solid wood will last even a few hundred years. An especially noteworthy item in our offer is bog oak, also known as fossil oak, black oak or Polish ebony. It is doubtlessly the most exclusive and sought-after kind of European wood. Bog oak is often called a “jewel of carpentry art”, since it is an eternal raw material and, like every jewel, represents a historical and heritage value for many generations. Old wood will best complement the period character of a house with historical architecture, and will also give a special flavor to contemporary and avant-garde interiors.

 

Restored wood in UK

 

Reclaimed wood is a popular material for architectural and interior design projects. It is desirable because it offers a unique character and warmth that cannot be achieved with new materials. Old wood that has been salvaged from buildings, factories, and warehouses is re-purposed to create reclaimed wood planks for flooring, furniture, and feature walls. The process of reclaiming wood involves careful dismantling of structures to prevent further damage to the wood. Once removed, the wood is cleaned, de-nailed, and prepared for reuse. The reclaimed wood London industry has embraced the trend of using old wood to create rustic yet sophisticated designs that blend seamlessly into modern spaces. Some factories and designers use reclaimed hardwood to create a range of products tailored to their customer’s specific designs.

The popularity of reclaimed wood has grown because it offers a sustainable alternative to new wood with its diminishing natural resources. By reusing old wood, we are preserving the character and memories of old buildings, piece by piece. Reclaimed hardwood is an environmentally friendly option that offers endless possibilities for those who want an eco-friendly yet stylish look for their homes and businesses.
