Fitting Reclaimed Floorboards

UKAA buy and sell Reclaimed Pine Floorboards.

UKAA can offer you 2 options

1. Reclaimed Floorboards - Original Victorian square edged boards
2. Re-Sawn Floorboards - Victorian beams cut into floorboards to your sizes - either square edged or tongue and groove

Many people these days are re-installing reclaimed floor boards. The options available are reclaimed original Victorian square edged floor boards, and re-sawn boards in either square edged or tongue and grooved. We pride ourselves on the quality of timber we use for our re-sawn floor boards. We are very particular when it comes to reclaimed floor boards; we only buy floor boards that we ourselves would use in our own home. The timber we buy is over 100 years old. We only buy the best timber.

Floor boards are often fitted with various board widths in one room. This method makes a floor appear aesthetically pleasing, but some of our customers tend to use just one width of board in a room. The choice is yours, depending on what your requirements are. Using one width in a room is more convenient for the person fitting the boards. One only has to see the finished product to appreciate why it really is worth all the time, cost, and effort.

Re-claimed flooring, which is tens and sometimes hundreds of years old, attains a beauty and patina that simply cannot be replicated by new flooring suppliers.

Buying from UKAA will remove any quality issues and allow you to concentrate on the fitting / installation.

A reclaimed floor that has been properly laid and finished will blend perfectly with the décor of a period property. It will also enhance its surroundings and add greatly to the property’s re-sale value.



Fitting Floorboards
We have fitted reclaimed pine floorboards in to our new offices, both down and upstairs.

The boards that we used are shown in the images below with the final image showing the finished boards.

We sanded the boards with a normal 4" wide belt sander - we did not use the large ones that you normally hire as we did not want to take out too much of the patina of the old boards. We then finished the boards with 3 coats of Osmo which is a wax oil.

These next three images show the boards being fitted
we used a pair of clamps to keep the boards nice and tight prior to nailing.
