Combining beauty and a unique story, reclaimed hardwood flooring is only increasing in popularity among Honolulu homeowners. Rich variations in tone, texture, and plank size create a visually stunning hardwood flooring option. Reclaimed hardwoods also go beyond visual attractiveness by bringing durability, sustainability, and history into your home.
How often can someone tell you the history of the floor they are standing on? Whether it’s from a plantation era school house or an abandoned home from the 1950’s, reclaimed hardwood has a history. Most reclaimed hardwood dealers are familiar with the wood source and can tell you the story of your new flooring. Compared to newer hardwoods, reclaimed wood is stronger, denser, and up to the challenge of wear, tear, and moisture. As an added bonus, reclaimed wood can be made from tree species that are no longer available for flooring production – adding even more unique value to your Honolulu hardwood flooring project.
Reuse and Reclaim
When a building is demolished or remodeled, there often is an abundance of salvageable wood. Beyond existing flooring, reclaimed wood is created from various other timber sources, such as beams and framing. Often times this wood is not always in the best shape from many years of use, so producers carefully find the most suitable pieces to craft into new reclaimed hardwood flooring. Resuing wood removes the need for new resources, making it a more sustainable flooring option. You can feel good about your eco-friendly choice and also rejoice in the unique character of reclaimed wood, since no two reclaimed wood floors are identical.
