Why reclaimed wood is wider than newer timber
If you compare old flooring built at the turn of the century such as those in Victorian and Edwardian homes with modern timber flooring you’ll notice that the planks in the latter are far narrower. That’s because the trees haven’t been allowed to grow and reach their full size – as a result, the planks in newer flooring aren’t as wide as those in reclaimed flooring.
The large planks allows for more flexibility into customizing the wood for a number of uses. You can actually use them for flooring, but re-purpose it for wall panels, furniture, wood decks and a lot more!
