Reclaimed timber products do not suit everybody. They come with characterful flaws which many people love but some do not. Although every care is taken to process and treat the wood as best we can, these flaws can include bowing, cupping and gaps appearing over time. You may find that gaps will appear (or sometimes come and go) depending on the atmosphere of your home. This is not a fault, it is the wood reacting to it's environment by swelling and contracting according to differing moisture and heat through the seasons.
Reclaimed timber is a natural product and may contain certain aged characteristics including but not limited to: colour variation, nails / nail holes, saw marks, dents / scratches, mortise holes, insect holes, staining, tapering, wane etc.
Reclaimed wood dimensions will not necessarily be as exact as using brand new timber, therefore the dimensions on the finished product can vary slightly. Furthermore, some minor variations in thickness between planks may result is minor wobble and unevenness in the tabletop and the overall heights. This is expected and can usually be fixed with a piece of felt.
Appearances of reclaimed wood can also vary from board to board even when sourced at the same time from the same venue. Our imagery and samples are used to demonstrate the general style and quality of the products but the end product will ultimately differ.
A suitable wood filler will be used only when explicitly requested. You may find areas of wood filler on your reclaimed wood product, including on table tops.
Although every effort is made to protect and seal the wood on our products, wood will inevitably continue to move in tune with the environment. You can help minimise this movement by keeping the products at as stable an environment (temperature, moisture) as is possible.
Our reclaimed timber comes from a variety of sources, including construction projects. Therefore, there may be nails and other objects in the wood, both metallic and non-metallic.
Being previously used and worked timber, the possibility of decay or fungus can exist. We endeavour to ensure that our timber products are of suitably high quality, but is impossible to eliminate all the risks associated with using reclaimed wood and cannot be held liable for any issues that arise with the use of this material after taking all reasonable steps to ensure suitability.
