Reclaimed Pine Flooring

As with a lot of our products our reclaimed pine flooring originates from Central and Eastern Europe.

We first started dealing with pine and other soft woods way back in 1991 importing timber from Eastern Europe for some of the largest timber suppliers in the UK. Through decades of supplying softwood our knowledge of reclaimed pine is extensive. We only pick the best salvage. A lot of our products have been regularised and prepared for flooring, although we also sell original floorboards of which the surface has been untouched.

Provenance

Our reclaimed pine floorboards are recovered from old dwellings that are earmarked for demolition. These are generally village properties but sometimes old townhouses too. There are still many of these old properties in existence.

Reclaimed pine floorboards are a very environmentally-friendly option, as new life is given to something that’s been around for a while and has already served its purpose once. These boards range from the 17th – 19th century and can be as old as 250 years. We care about the environment, which is why not only are our products manufactured using recycled materials, but the methods with which we obtain them are eco-friendly, so if sustainability is something that you pay particular attention to, reclaimed wood (and especially reclaimed pine flooring) will be a perfect addition to your space. We offer a number of different pine options with all different varying looks and patina and these reclaimed floorboards cannot be matched by new wood.

Rufurbishing Process

Once we have the materials the reclaimed boards are moved to a finishing mill. The first step is to check the reclaimed wood for metal – usually, this consists of nails and fixings but sometimes pieces of shrapnel can be found as well. The reclaimed floorboards are then sorted by how it can be utilised. This process starts by assessing what can be salvaged to maintain its original face. This means that the next step is to separate the boards and beams.
