The Benefits of Reclaimed Engineered Wood Flooring

Reclaimed engineered wood flooring might easily be one of the most popular trends in building design and renovation today. Because of its timeless appeal and durability, as well as the sustainable practices it encourages, we’ll definitely see even more increased interest in it in many years to come.

This article will explore the many benefits of reclaimed engineered wood flooring in greater detail so that you can make a final decision with ease and confidence. 

Before diving into the benefits of reclaimed wood flooring, let’s make sure we have a clear understanding of it. 

What exactly is reclaimed engineered wood flooring? You should pay attention to three keywords: engineered, reclaimed, and wood. Reclaimed engineered flooring uses old wood from a variety of sources, including barns, factories, and warehouses. This reclaimed wood is then layered on the floor, creating a stunning surface. With adhesives and pressure, the reclaimed wood is affixed to the meticulously engineered layers, creating a durable flooring plank.

Engineered reclaimed wood floors combine the aesthetic appeal of reclaimed wood with the durability and stability of engineered wood. 

Environmental Sustainability

Let’s start with the obvious: Choosing reclaimed wood reduces the need for new timber and decreases deforestation. Each floor made from reclaimed wood reduces the demand for virgin timber from forests, helping forests to be preserved rather than depleted. The Main Company’s wood is salvaged from various interesting buildings, including Old Textile Mills, European Barns, and historic buildings such as the Allied Bakery.

Durability and Stability

Engineered reclaimed wood flooring is made with old-growth wood, which, in comparison to solid wood, is incredibly stable and durable. Typically, reclaimed wood comes from larger, slower-growing trees, has expanded and contracted many times over its lifetime, and has been exposed to more weathering. Because of the tightly packed growth rings, it is denser and thus more physically durable, with better rot resistance. Old-growth wood is less likely to splinter, split, or warp than new-growth wood, and it can withstand fluctuations in temperature and humidity better.

Unique Aesthetic Appeal

Each and every plank of reclaimed wood from The Main Company has a story to tell, making it a truly unique product.

We offer a wide range of colours and finishes, from Weathered Barn Oak to traditional and rustic pine, to match your personal tastes. For instance, reclaimed Heritage Oak – Burnt Grey Oak has a stunning and unique finish created with reactive stains and hand-applied patinas.


If you’ve been researching different types of flooring, you must already know that engineered reclaimed wood flooring stands out as one of the most cost-effective options on the market. Reclaimed wood flooring from The Main Company offers lower initial costs, as well as long-term value and durability. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to increase your home’s aesthetic value or a business with a commercial interest in a cost-effective solution, we highly recommend investing in reclaimed wood flooring if you are looking for a cost-effective solution to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. 

Reclaimed wood flooring from The Main Company is available in solid and engineered constructions, providing customers with flexibility and cost-saving options.

Health and Indoor Air Quality

Engineered reclaimed wood flooring from The Main Company enhances health and indoor air quality due to the absence of harmful VOC emissions. Unlike some materials that release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), engineered reclaimed wood flooring from The Main Company promotes health and indoor air quality. Reclaimed wood flooring promotes a healthier indoor environment by minimising the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Often, reclaimed wood flooring comes from natural wood that has been exposed to the air for a long time and has off-gassed any VOCs it contains. So it’s a great choice for people who care about their occupants and want to make their living or working environment safer and cleaner.  

Final Thoughts

The world is going green as we speak, and sustainability is not merely a trend; it’s a practice that is incorporated into almost every aspect of our lives, including architecture and design. Given that the world is moving in a certain direction, we must make some changes, starting from our houses. Changing the old flooring with reclaimed wood might not seem like a big deal, but as we saw earlier, it has a huge impact on the environment as well as our health and well-being.
