Water Extraction from Wood Floors

Typically a water soaked wood floor required removal, weeks to allow the sub-floor to dry out

Installation of new wood and sanding and finishing

We have utilized a new system where if we get to the flooded area quickly, deploy the 

moisture extraction units for several days the wood will return to its

previous flat condition.

This has been sucessfully used on many Federal and privately owned properties with floors of historic importance

Recycled IN STOCK Wood Flooring

Recycled flooring is exactly that. Wood floors removed from an old house, de-nailed, re-bundled, installed in your home and sanded and finished. You will find normal defects expected on a floor that has been lived on for eighty years. Gaps, discolorations and other imperfections. The old growth wood though, has characteristics that cannot be found in new flooring such as longer lengths and beautiful graining patterns. We currently recycle over ten thousand feet of flooring each year.

Supplies are limited as we recover the products from structures slated for demolition

FSC Un-finished domestic wood flooring

What is the Forest Stewardship Council?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization with diverse representation including environmental institutions, timber and trade organizations, forestry professionals, indigenous peoples' organizations, community forestry groups, and forest product certification organizations from 25 countries. The Council accredits certification bodies and promotes voluntary, third-party certification. The FSC logo on a product provides consumers with an assurance that the wood they use comes from forests managed in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

 

What are the measurement criteria for FSC certification?

A forest is scientifically evaluated based on management practices in three areas: sustainable harvest, ecosystem health, and community benefits. Biologists, ecologists, silviculturists, and foresters examine and measure the impact of forest practices on wildlife and their habitat, water quality, soil and plant conservation, natural forest sustainability and biodiversity, visual aesthetics, and the total ecological integrity of the forest.
