McGee Salvage has been specializing in salvaged, out-of-production, antique hardwood floors since 1985. Whether you are trying to match existing flooring in your home during a remodel, or just want flooring that doesn’t come from a box, salvaged material is the way to go. All flooring is removed without damaging the original tongue and groove. The tongue and groove is then scraped, de-nailed, bundled in like-sized pieces and ready for reinstallation. There are many benefits to using salvaged material versus using what is available in today’s new flooring market. New hardwood flooring is shipped on pallets, and so the length of each piece of flooring is much shorter than salvaged material, which was moved by hand. Not only are the lengths much longer in older material, but salvaged flooring is full of character that newer hardwood flooring lacks.
As a sponsor, McGee Salvage contributed salvaged wood flooring (from a deconstructed school gym) for the main floor areas of the Water House. For more information, visit the McGee Salvage website.
