How to Care for Reclaimed Hardwood Floors

How to Care for Reclaimed Hardwood Floors

Just because the reclaimed wood you have installed in your space has withstood the test of time and the elements, that doesn’t mean you get to skip out on taking care of it. The key to maintaining wood flooring (reclaimed or not) is proper and consistent care and maintenance.

De-nailing Reclaimed Wood

It all starts with the de-nailing process. All of our reclaimed, antique barn wood is thoroughly inspected and the old nails are removed before any milling or kiln drying takes place. This ensures that our material is ready to be used for any type of application without fear of running into old nails! This truly sets us apart from other reclaimed wood sellers and we take pride in giving each piece of wood the attention it deserves.

Meet Our Reclaimed Wood Flooring

All of our reclaimed wood flooring has been renamed! We wanted to reflect the distinct feeling these different types of wood give us while making it easier for our customers to identify their favorites. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think!

Visiting St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center

We visited St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey to deliver some pet supplies and a check that we collected from our big sale and demonstration day back in October. Animals are very close to our hearts and we couldn't think of a better cause to donate to. Thank you to everyone who shopped our sale and donated to these beautiful animals in need! (And no, we didn't take any dogs home ... yet.)

Fireplace Mantel Sale, Demonstrations, & More!

Mark your calendars because Saturday, October 21st is going to be a big day here at Real Antique Wood. 

We will be holding a fireplace mantel sale on Saturday, October 21st from 7am to 3pm with mantels on sale up to 25% off. Along with the sale, our master carpenter and General Manager Anthony Saraceno will give a demonstration on how he makes fireplace mantels from the barn beams we rescue. 

Oh, you want even more? You got it! Our good friend Lisa Lofdahl of LL Metalworks will be set up here at the mill with her blacksmith forge to give you a glimpse at how blacksmithing used to be done long ago.

Think that's it? No way! Our owner, Gary Horvath, will also be giving tours around the mill and property, showing you what all of our machines do and most certainly telling stories about the barns we've taken down.

10% of the total sales for the day will be donated to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison, NJ to assist dogs including those affected by the recent hurricanes. We'll also be accepting donations, so stay tuned for details!

Whew! That was a lot. To sum it all up:

Fireplace Mantel Sale - Saturday, October 21st from 7am to 3pm

Fireplace Mantel Demonstration - Saturday, October 21st at 12 noon

Blacksmith presentation, mill tour, refreshments, and more!
