The interest in the use of reclaimed materials has been steadily growing for several decades. ‘Architectural salvage’ and ‘reclamation’ is now terminology that is recognised throughout the mainstream building industry. Having spent over 30 years in the salvage business, Bob Lovell has specialised and focused on the uses and application of reclaimed timber and flooring. ‘The Antique Oak Flooring Company’ is the result of almost a lifetimes experience in this field and humbly lay claim to the finest stocks of reclaimed timber and flooring from around the world.
As specialists in reclaimed flooring and timber, we supply local, national and international demands. Large samples of our range of reclaimed and newly produced flooring can be viewed at our North London gallery, where our timber flooring specialists can advise on suitability and application. Full technical information, including the performance of reclaimed flooring, sub-floor suitability, installation and finishing, is offered freely.
The product range we offer is considered second to none in variety of species and format. Antique oaks, Victorian pines, exotic hardwood parquets and strip flooring are but a few. Continental Parquet de Versailles, hand-made from reclaimed timber and original plank flooring compliment our ever-changing stock of antique and reclaimed materials.
Our client base proudly boasts architects, specifiers, designers, specialist conservation companies and our all-important private customers. We welcome all enquiries from a few boards for patching a floor, to container loads of reclaimed flooring for export.
The benefits of using reclaimed timber and flooring are as wide and variable as the stock available and so are the reasons for its consideration. Ecological and environmental concerns recommend its use, whilst in restoration work it is often demanded. More and more discerning clients are attracted by the appeal of using reclaimed timber with its character, patination and depth of colour, to benefit their traditional or contemporary design schemes.
