Age gives reclaimed timber more strength and durability
The reason reclaimed wooden flooring is stronger and will last longer than flooring produced from newer timber, is because the older wood is less likely to split. The reason for this is that it’s been exposed to hot and cold atmosphere’s for so long that it’s already done all the expanding and contracting it’s ever going to do. In other words it’s already dried out and won’t do so any further. It’s stood the test of time, if you like.
The grain in the reclaimed timber is also much denser than the new wood which also means it’s less likely to warp.
