We are specialists in sourcing and supplying salvaged materials for repair, renovation and conversion of period and heritage properties including barn conversions. We also supply real wood floor boards to new build as a value-adding and durable alternative to fitted carpets, especially where owners wish to minimise dust and artificial chemicals.
Flooring planks and wide boards can be supplied; tongued and grooved or plain. Whole floors or usable sections thereof are sold as they come out of buildings on a first come first served basis.

Where does our salvage come from? Our biggest source of material is demolition sites, of nineteenth and twentieth-century buildings. We also have contacts in Europe and the USA.

Where do we send it to? UK and overseas worldwide.

How long does it take? We can normally supply materials like timber planks at a few days' notice. Because each demolition is individual and different, we might have, say, a school and a hospital one week and a factory the next, each with its particular treasures. So a little advanced notice of your requirements does help us. If we know what you are looking for, we can enquire of demolitions about to commence and reserve special items for you.

A source of restoration help and a calendar of interesting social and learned events can be found at the Victorian Society
