Reclaimed Wood Flooring
Reclaimed wood flooring is crafted from reclaimed wood lumber and timbers salvaged from old antique beams, dead standing timber and industrial buildings. Much of these aged salvaged woods originally came from the old-growth forests of early American history, and produce beautiful plank flooring. This rare, old lumber produces reclaimed wood flooring, real rustic plank country floors, which possess a rich color, patina and character marks associated with old growth rustic timber.
Reclaimed wood floors are full of character which may include worm holes, nail holes, knots, weathered cracks, and a patina that can only be achieved by time. Reclaimed flooring not only reduces the production cost of the floor, but also eased the tension of the forestry resources, reduce carbon emissions, not only improved corporate earnings, and more to improve the new understanding of the public on environmentally friendly flooring products.

Reclaimed flooring will bring an authentic early American and rustic feel to your home that harkens back to a time when we lived in harmony with the land and it in turn provided us with some of the most beautiful and durable building materials ever used.

China has the biggest manufacturers for hardwood flooring, bamboo flooring and laminate flooring, no factories involved in reclaimed wood because China doesn't have the raw materials - salvaged woods. Houses in China are all from cement, no wood houses because wood is a very rare resources here. China has special deals for the reclaimed floors - exchange old flooring for new flooring.
Reclaimed wood flooring is an important part of flooring sales because it has very attractive price and high level on environment. Unfortunately reclaimed bamboo flooring is not available yet because bamboo flooring is still young floor - 20 years only, and bamboo is renewable very fast, this makes new bamboo flooring pretty low level cost.
