We all want to have the best of everything in our homes, so when you are searching for a more sustainable material for your floors, reclaimed wood is a great choice.  Reclaimed wood flooring offers a unique floor design that brings benefit to both your family and the environment.  Basically, reclaimed woods is recycled wood that does not need to undergo the tedious and chemically-laden processes of new wood. Reclaimed wood incorporates not just the idea of helping save the environment, but also an attractive, unique visual due to its markings  These marks add to the overall beauty of reclaimed wood, which cannot be easily replicated by new wood.

So, what eco-friendly benefits does reclaimed wood offer?

  • It minimizes the use of natural resources. Reclaimed wood reduces the need to cut down young trees in the forest because it is recycled.  Using reclaimed wood helps to preserve nature.

Distressed marks already add beauty to the wood, which makes it more attractive and natural.
