Antique Oak flooring is often associated with reclaimed timber. This comes with a connotation of a product that has perhaps aged through years of us. As this naturally aged and distressed timber becomes rarer, the prices are soaring. We’ve developed a range of engineered oak flooring that has been hand distressed to recreate the look of reclaimed timber. This is a sustainable and cost effective method of having a classic antique floor.
There are other wood floor manufacturers that produce ‘antiqued’ floors; however, a lot of the time machines are used to distress the wood to replicate the surface texture of reclaimed Oak. This mechanical method of aging the timber often creates a manufactured, false, repetitive feel or design to the surface of the floor. Our hand distressing methods create a far more genuine randomised pattern of aging helping further increase the reclaimed timber effect.
