New York Salvaged Flooring

Here is a photo essay of how we salvaged some flooring and reused it. We bought 15,000 square feet of herring bone style mahogany flooring from an office building.

The flooring didn’t look too fancy laying in a big pile:

They had glued it down previously.

We then cut it to make length wise flooring. We stapled it down with a sound proofing layer under it. We chose staples instead of glue because it is less toxic.

Then we sanded the old toxic varnish off:

Then we applied layers of tung oil and citrus solvent:

It got richer and richer with each application of tung oil:

The sanded down staples added a nice old fashioned look to the wood:

We have lots more if you want to buy some for your home. As a New York green contractor we feel the biggest impact we can have is through salvage. It reduces our consumption, which is the largest cause of our ecological problems.

    We love walking on these floors, it is like walking on velvet, so warm and soft… And beautiful too.

    I am interested in doing a similar project. Can you tell me some more information on where to buy salvaged flooring? We are only looking for 1000-1500 sq. feet.

    Thank you,
    Paul
