Our Reclaimed materials are finished with either a low VOC water-based polyurethane in - Natural Matte - or an all natural VOC free flax-based oil.
SURFACE / FACE TREATMENTS
Our Reclaimed floors are milled in 3 distinct surfaces:
- ORIGINAL FACE The full patina of the original reclaimed wood including original saw marks, and oxidized metal stains remains on this face. Each plank in this surface is brushed and lightly sanded to clean them up and make them suitable for either flooring or walls. This is the must rustic & raw look in our reclaimed materials.
- HIT OR MISS FACE Some areas of the board are sanded smooth while others are left with an original face, this technique is sometimes referred to as "skip-planing". Ths is the middle ground between the rusticity of Original Face and the refinement of Milled Face.
- MILLED FACE Most every board in a Milled Face reclaimed is sanded smooth, leaving only traces of the original face and inherent saw marks. Milled Face materials can also come from the center of larger reclaimed timbers such as large beams and joists, etc. This is the cleanest and most elegant look in our reclaimed materials.
