Unparalleled Style and Performance in the Pacific Northwest

American Reclaimed Wood Floors is proud to offer a unique and sustainable flooring option: thermally modified reclaimed wood. This innovative process enhances the natural beauty and performance of reclaimed wood, making it an ideal choice for eco-conscious homeowners in the Pacific Northwest.

What is Thermally Modified Reclaimed Wood Flooring?

Thermally modified reclaimed wood undergoes a heat treatment process in a kiln. This process improves the wood’s stability, durability, and resistance to moisture, rot, and insects. Unlike pressure-treated lumber, thermal modification achieves these benefits without the use of chemicals, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

Benefits of Thermally Modified Reclaimed Wood Flooring
  • Enhanced Durability: The thermal modification process significantly increases the lifespan and stability of reclaimed wood, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Improved Moisture Resistance: Thermally modified wood is less susceptible to warping and cupping due to moisture fluctuations, making it perfect for the Pacific Northwest climate.
  • Superior Insect Resistance: The heat treatment eliminates insects and their eggs, ensuring a long-lasting and pest-free floor.
  • Sustainable Choice: By utilizing reclaimed wood and avoiding chemical treatments, thermally modified flooring offers a sustainable alternative to traditional hardwood options.
  • Unique Aesthetic Appeal: The thermal modification process deepens the wood’s natural color tones, creating a rich and visually stunning appearance.
