Reclaimed wood looks stunning, is highly individual and works equally well in both traditional and contemporary design schemes. And, in addition to the aesthetics, it obviously also presents a particularly sound ecological option for your scheme.

Havwoods' reclaimed wood has been recycled from old buildings like farms, factories and warehouses, originally built hundreds of years ago in Europe or North America and now left derelict. Each and every plank bears the beauty of a long life of service but, to ensure the consistency demanded in contemporary projects, each has been sawn, sanded and profiled to 21st Century standards. And, as you would expect from a genuine reclaimed board, the planks themselves come in random lengths and widths, further enhancing its individuality.

What is a wood veneer?

A wood veneer is essentially a very thin slice taken from a slab of timber. Indeed, usually it is very thin indeed - more of a sliver than a slice - and the slices are joined together to form a much larger piece, a term known as “laid up”.

This product, however, is not a veneer in the accepted sense. It is simply a plank of solid wood that is thinner than usual. In fact, because it has been produced specifically for use as cladding, it is less than half the thickness of our usual flooring planks. This means that it is less than half the weight, a bonus when cladding. And because it use far less timber it is more cost-effective. Of course, it has still been milled to the same exacting tolerances as our standard solid or engineered planks, which means that it will be as consistent as always and just as easy to install.

What is meant by rustic grade?

Whilst you are no doubt aware that wood is graded according to its appearance, you may be surprised to learn that there are no international grading standards. At Havwoods we deal with many different mills, from many different countries, so for consistency we have defined our own grading rules.

This board uses rustic grade timber, which means that it is visually very interesting. It will certainly contain knots and there are no limits to their size or number. Knots are formed when a branch has died and its base has become enclosed by subsequent layers of trunk wood as the tree grows, so their presence is emphasised by the grain of the wood flowing around it. Filler is used in the larger knots, the colour carefully selected to complement the wood rather than to match it exactly. The colour of the filler may vary.

As a rustic grade wood it will also contain both heartwood and sapwood and there will be colour variation. You may also see some checks (cracks across the growth ring) and possibly some end shake (cracks between the rings). None of these are cause for concern.

What is the species?

This product is milled in Europe from European oak. European oak is actually a generic name for two different species, both of which are classified as white oak and exhibit essentially the same characteristics. Also know by their country of origin, e.g. English oak, French oak, et cetera, they have a warm golden, honey colour, slightly richer and less pink-toned than American Oak and with more even colouring. They also have a distinctive wavy grain pattern with scatterings of pips and burr and are particularly suited to the fuming process, ensuring more consistent results.

In general, European mills utilise a technique known as live sawing. This results in a mixture of plain, quarter and rift sawn cuts all in one wide plank of wood. Capturing all parts of the wood in one cut like this gives the floor a unique and notably beautiful appearance, and because at least a third of the cut is quarter sawn, the planks themselves are particularly stable.

What is meant by engineered wood?

Some people confuse engineered wood with laminate, but nothing could be further from the truth. Laminate flooring may look like wood, but it is not, it is simply a photographic image under a clear protective layer. Engineered wood, however, is the real thing. And once laid it is virtually impossible to distinguish it from solid wood. But instead of being milled from a single piece of timber, engineered boards consist of several layers, and this construction results in a number of very sound advantages.

In an engineered board, the top layer is, of course, solid wood, whilst the other layers may be plywood, softwood or yet more layers of hardwood. Each layer is bonded to the next with the grain running at right angles, which makes it virtually impossible for the board to swell or shrink. So when it is laid it is highly unlikely to warp and gap, or otherwise suffer in the same way as solid wood flooring can when exposed to changes in humidity through the use of heating and air conditioning, or simply due to a change in the weather.

In addition to being far more stable, engineered wood offers several other benefits. It may be laid as a floating floor, as well as being nailed or glued down, and some planks even come in an easy to fit 'click' system. It is usually pre-finished, meaning you see exactly how your floor will look before it is fitted and ensuring a faster, easier installation with no mess and no fuss. And, because it isn't affected by changes in humidity, it is available in much wider, longer, more imposing planks. Finally, it is particularly kind to the environment, because every beautiful, stable, hard wearing engineered timber floor fitted uses less of the slow-growth hardwoods. Little wonder that engineered timber is now by far the most popular type of timber flooring fitted around the world.
