Reclaimed Timber

Reclaimed Timber

Also very rare and unique source for Reclaimed Flooring is reclaimed river logs from Bowling Green where the Joiner family has been navigating Kentucky rivers for five generations and uses woods mostly for crafts, but also flooring and furniture. Reclaimed timber is popular for many reasons: the wood's unique appearance, its contribution to green building, the history of the wood's origins, and the wood's physical characteristics such as strength, stability and durability. The increased strength of reclaimed wood is often attributed to the lack of air pollution that existed up until the 20th century as well as to the wood's often having been harvested from virgin growth timber, which had hundreds of years to grow before human intervention.
