Cali Bamboo's green building materials brand GreenClaimed adds line of reclaimed solid American oak flooring to range; California-based company markets product as preventing need to harvest from live forests
June 12, 2014
GreenClaimed®, a green building materials brand created by Cali Bamboo, recently released a new line of 100% reclaimed solid American oak flooring.
Made in the USA and sustainably sourced by salvaging barns, factories, and mills, this solid oak flooring retains unique characteristics only made possible by its previous life of service in America's heartlands. Knots, cracks, saw marks and nail holes show the history of the wood and allude to the laboring hands that worked with each plank in many decades past.
"We are offering a true rustic modern floor that not only reclaims a piece of American history but prevents the need to harvest from live forests, furthering our mission to provide quality sustainable building materials to both residential and commercial customers," says Jeff Goldberg, Cali Bamboo's CEO. "The distressed character these floors possess contrasts beautifully with contemporary architecture and design while becoming a living reminder of simpler times."
The flooring is sold unfinished and easily takes a variety of finishes. Cali Bamboo recommends using a natural oil finish to enhance the floor's true character. Oil finishes penetrate the wood and effectively strengthen and protect the floor while revealing and complementing the natural grain and patina of the wood.
GreenClaimed® reclaimed oak flooring comes in two styles; distressed, for the bold at heart, or remilled a slightly more conservative variant. Plank sizes are 1.5-8 feet long, 3-6 inches wide, and ¾ inch thick, and features tongue and groove edge milling facilitating nail-down or glue-down installation options.
