How are reclaimed oak beams recovered ?

 

Old oak beams are highly valued architecturally for their strength, beauty, and historic significance. Reclaimed oak beams, in particular, have become increasingly popular in recent years as a sustainable building material alternative due to their weathered patina and unique character. The process of recovering these beams is a highly specialized endeavor. It typically begins with scouting for suitable sources such as abandoned buildings, historical structures, and old barns. Once an appropriate site is found, the team of experts begins the careful dismantling process.

This involves removing the old beams while minimizing damage to the structure and ensuring the safety of the workers. The recovered beams are then cleaned, de-nailed, and graded to determine the level of quality and condition. The reclaimed oak beams are then processed in the proper manner to meet the specific needs of the clients, such as sizing, sanding, wire brushing, and finishing. The process of recovering old oak beams is not only a way to preserve their historical significance but is also an eco-friendly way to repurpose them, keeping them out of landfills and reducing the demand for newly harvested wood.
