Reclaimed wood new uses

Cleaver is a fresh and exciting new Restaurant concept in leafy Cobham Surrey. Reclaimed are loving the way their cladding materials were used on the exterior facade, complete with painted lines off the factory floor still in situ’,  looks mint against the gold lettering of ‘Cleaver’. This new restaurant took their ‘eco’ credentials further   by installing our reclaimed floor boards throughout the restaurants.

We think this find is worth shouting about for you flooring connoisseurs, new in stock here at Reclaimed we have some real London heritage for sale. Beautiful teak flooring from the Walthamstow Stadium famed for its greyhound racing that sadly closed in 2008 after 73 years of entertaining the public. The distinctive pink, green and red neon signage is now a missing landmark in London, all very sad. But it is a chance to bag a slice of London’s social history. To find out more about this rare opportunity contact Paul or Andy on 020 8529 8504. http://www.reclaimed.uk.com/wood-products/hard-wood-gallery.html

Little or no timber arrives at our sawmill that is immediately viable for resale. Each batch is De-nailed, any splits removed and moisture content calculated.

The wood is then held as a stock item in one of our warehouses until selected to meet an individual customer enquiry. We then routinely plane to a thickness and size to width. Today’s customers commonly choose to retain the original top surface in order to retain the patina of age.

Bulk timbers such as French oak, thick roof boards and joists are re sawn to provide boards of a usable thickness and provide the alternative of old or new surfaces.

Our strength lies in the depth and variety of stock that we hold, which rarely fails to provide a product to suits customers’ needs. http://www.reclaimed.uk.com/wood-flooring/the-process.html
