Issues With Reclaimed Timber Flooring

Wood inevitably degrades as it ages. It warps, dries out and becomes brittle.

So by the time they’re a hundred years old or so, salvaged floorboards are inferior to their original state.

Compared to new engineered floorboards, recycled floorboards have a relatively short life expectancy too.

And when choosing your flooring, it’s worth bearing in mind that floorboards play a different role to decorative recycled fittings such as antique wooden panels and doors. Floorboards often need to bear substantial weight.

For medium and larger sized rooms, colour consistency is also likely to be an issue unless you’re going for a patchwork effect with random colours. Sourcing large quantities of the recycled wood from the same site is usually problematic.

Suitable Uses

Because it’s engineered oak the Naked Floors Repro Reclaimed Flooring range is suitable for all installations, including kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories and loft conversions as well as normal living spaces.

Our floorboards can be laid on floor joists, concrete substrates and even on heated floors.

By contrast salvaged wood flooring is almost always solid timber.

Unlike engineered wood flooring, solid wood floorboards are much more sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity.

They expand and contract as humidity and temperature varies.

Without room for lateral movement they tend to “crown” and “cup” and can even cause structural damage to surrounding walls.

As such it’s unwise to use salvaged floorboards in any setting prone to changes in temperature and humidity.

Salvaged wood flooring is wholly unsuitable for modern. Well- insulated, centrally heated rooms.
