Reclaimed wood floors give new life to old timbers. Made from lumber recycled from demolished buildings, heartpine, oak, and other woods are resawn into premium grade flooring. Variable widths maximize the yield from the wood and can be used to create a variety of patterns. Wide boards show off the grain and give an historic look to a new floor.
To deter mold, keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Relative humidity can be measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a small, inexpensive ($10-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.
