There are a few very important attributes that give reclaimed hardwood superiority over newly harvested lumber. One, it's age. It's old. REALLY old.
Our wood is "reclaimed" from old barns and wooden structures that are more than 100 years old.
The painfully slow process of a virgin-timber sapling maturing into a 200-ft tree gives this lumber it's extremely tight grain and arrow-straight trunks. It's from this select resource that our lifetime reclaimed flooring is made. Exposure to years of harsh weather and elements makes up the second attribute. Wood is organic and is always adapting to it's surroundings as it achieves balance and stability. Our wood has been soaking up its surroundings for over 100 years. During that time, this wood expands, contracts, absorbs and reacts to a variety of elements that gradually transform its "character" and instills the unquestionable beauty and stability of our finished product. You won't find any hand-distressing, artificial aging or any other factory-made stuff going on in our reclaimed wood. Each wide plank board we offer is truly unique and bears the marks of an early American heritage. Final attribute: Reclaimed wood is 100% recycled. This is the real deal. Reclaimed wood reduces the demand on our forests and provides a superior building material product.
Wormy Chestnut is not a distinct species of Chestnut, but rather refers to American Chestnut (Castanea dentata) trees that were killed by the chestnut blight of the early 1900s, which were subsequently damaged by insects, leaving holes and discoloration in the standing trees. The trees were then subsequently harvested and converted into lumber.
Because of the blight wiping out nearly all mature American Chestnut trees, its lumber is both rare and (relatively) valuable. Wormy Chestnut in particular is usually salvaged from old barns and other structures, and reprocessed and sold as reclaimed lumber. Between the nail holes, discoloration, worm and insect damage, Wormy Chestnut is preferred in applications where a rustic or unpolished appearance is desired.
