So why use reclamation?
The building industry has a massive impact on the environment in terms of energy consumption, use of natural resources, pollution and waste. Each year in the UK, the costs associated with the extraction, production, manufacture and transportation of building materials are immense. Using reclaimed materials can significantly reduce environmental impacts. The building industry could save up to 95% of the embodied costs by preventing the unnecessary production of new materials, and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. But, according to a recent government study, only 1% of reclaimed materials are used in new building projects.

Reclaimed Wooden Floors: The reason reclaimed wooden flooring is stronger and will last longer than flooring produced from newer timber, is because the older wood is less likely to split. The reason for this is that it’s been exposed to hot and cold atmospheres for so long that it’s already done all the expanding and contracting it needs to and is less inclined to warp. The grain in the reclaimed timber is also much denser than the new wood.
