Can I Get My Pine Floobroards Repaired With Similar Ones?

This is a general question, which any of our customers is interested in.

The pine, used in the general construction in the UK is a soft timber coming in yellowish colour, rich of natural resins. It "dries" with the years and during this time it changes colour, appearance and hardness.

It may take 15 years, but eventually, the original pine victorian boards used in our properties will turn into the beautiful brownish (or reddish) boards, we love so much. When the day comes to the floorboards to be restored, we notice that some have suffered damage and in need of replacement.

A floor restoration company will then offer a replacement with similarly aged boards to match as close as possible your boards.

Where they come from?

Seasoned pine boards are available from Reclamation Yards and may cost anything between £5.00 - £9.00 per linear meter. Not a bargain, especially if the supply required is in loads.

There are various types of the pine species and most of them are available in the reclamation yards. To meet your expectations with the wood floor repair and restoration services we and other flooring companies would rely on these supplies.

There is a difference between the specifications "boards made of seasoned pine" and "reclaimed pine floorboards" - these are two separate products. Seasoned pine boards are made to size out of beams and larger old construction materials. Majority of the timber used for repairs comes from seasoned pine machined to sizes required.
