LV Reclaimed woods are salvaged from turn of the century (and older) buildings throughout the country, primarily in the south. The structures these woods are taken from can not be simply knocked down so we can pick the wood out of the rubble. They must be deconstructed meticulously, piece by piece, to preserve the resource until it reaches our mills. After removing foreign elements such as nails, screws and bolts, etc, these ancient and abandoned American timbers find a new life as we re-mill them into flooring, walls, and ceilings.

  • Finishing
    Surfaces & Finishes

    Reclaimed floors are finished with either low VOC water based based polyurethane or natural oils.

    SURFACE / FACE TREATMENTS

    Reclaimed floors are made in 3 distinct faces:
    • ORIGINAL FACE / FLOP HOUSE The full patina of the original reclaimed wood including original saw marks remains on this face.
    • HIT OR MISS FACE Some areas of the board are sanded smooth while others are left with an original face.
    • MILLED FACE Nearly the entire board is sanded smooth, a trace of original face and saw marks may remain.

  • Installation Methods
    Installation Methods

    Installation methods vary greatly depending on site conditions, but here are some general guidelines:

    • Solid wood is typically nailed, or nailed and glued, to a plywood subfloor.
    • Engineered wood is most commonly glued down to concrete subfloors. An additional soundproofing or moisture blocking barrier is often included in this type of installation.
    • Engineered floors are also usually the best choice for gluing down over radiant heat installations.
    • In either format, when planks are particularly wide, gluing and nailing is always good practice if possible.
