Reclaimed Wood and Recycled Wood: A Sustainable Option for Melbourne Residents

Reclaimed and recycled timbers are very much in vogue at present, thanks to growing public awareness about the problem of deforestation and the need to preserve our old-growth forests. Moreover, old timbers also tend to very desirable because of their history, typically possessing tight grains, rich patinas, and even natural and man-made imperfections that speak of the wood’s previous life. Consider those knot holes, nail holes, bolt holes, butterfly joints, stains, and other faults that ironically make the timber more attractive in many cases. Our vintage timbers come in two basic types:

Reclaimed Timber

Reclaimed wood typically refers to timber that has been removed from its existing location and reused in another setting without first being reprocessed into a different product. Reclaimed wood can come from a variety of sources, including old buildings, barns, bridges, quays, jetties, warehouses, pallets, railway sleepers, and many others.

Recycled Timber

Recycled wood products are derived from the same sources as reclaimed timber. However, recycled wood usually refers to timber that has undergone reprocessing—e.g. through milling, cutting, sanding, or coating—to create an entirely new product.

Whether you prefer the distressed look of old timber or you want it refined to reveal its hidden elegance, you can count on WM Specialised Timber to have the products that you need. We are committed to providing our customers environmentally sustainable wood products by giving vintage timbers a new lease on life.
