We make our floors one board at a time. First, each board is selectively and critically evaluated for flaws or imperfections. If it doesn’t meet our craftmen’s standards, we’ll recycle that board for other uses. We then custom mill and size your floor boards based upon your preferences for aesthetics and performance, and of course your budget. Shenandoah floors are designed and crafted to meet your lifestyle needs. Together, we’ll bring a warm and inviting sense of history to your living spaces, and add value to your home.
Reclaimed hardwood floors make a huge difference in how large a room feels. For instance, wide plank floors are great for smaller rooms because they “open up” the space by reducing the number of floor seams between boards. Lighter hardwood floor colors make rooms appear open and airy.
Ordering Your Re-claimed Antique Wood Floors
We start by listening carefully to your ideas, and then we share our knowledge and put forth suggestions. You will never feel pressured into making a decision. We want to be sure that you get the floor that you want. Then we will give you a thorough and in-depth introduction to our floors – the woods we offer, how to compare colors, styles, grades, custom options.
And, we invite you to take home samples of our flooring, so you can see our reclaimed antique wood floors in your space, with your lighting, furniture, and your home’s style. Then, you can decide upon the wood type and finish, based on the needs of your room and your and budget.
When to order your flooring is as important as what type to order. We recommend that the flooring be in your home for at least 7 – 14 days before installation – preferably with heat or air conditioning turned on. Considering our 4 – 8 week lead time (this can be narrowed depending on the type of floor and the quantity), talk to your contractor about how best to schedule your delivery. A good rule of thumb is to install after the drywall has been primed. After everything is in “move-in” condition apply your stain and topcoats.
Shenandoah Furniture Gallery can work with you directly or coordinate your flooring with your architect, builder or designer. We’ll determine your square footage, guide you or your installer through the installation and finishing process, and coordinate the delivery.
We are passionate about creating the exact look you want.
