Benefits of reclaimed lumber
Because of its' age reclaimed lumber is much less likly to warp or split than modern
timbers. These trees where allowed to grow for years past maturity giving them a dense ring pattern and adding stability to the wood.
At the time these timbers where reclaimed they had been exposed to the elements for centuries. It has withstood the test of time and this and
gained unmatched strength and durabilty in the process.
You will no doubt notce that the planks of reclaimed timber are wider than its modern counterpart.
That is because it was allowed to grow for centuies making the rings in reclaimed timber much wider than you’d find in newer lumber. Its'
history can be seen in the knots, nail holes, and other markings to give the wood a charming character and uniqe beauty.
Reclaimed lumber is a great choice for the enviromentaly conscience. Because it's
milled from antique lumber it prevents the need to for further deforestation. Not only does this protect our forest, it also protects our atmosphere
from the emmissions and the local populations from the impact of logging operations.
