Don’t Replace Your Wood Floors, Reclaim Them!

Are you in the market for a new floor in the St. Louis area? As you begin your research, you may find that there are a lot of companies out there claiming to be the best. How can you ever decide? Surely, this isn’t something where you can just go with the cheapest. After all, these floors should be in your home for years to come so quality matters.

Consider asking a few questions:

*What type of floor is the best for my situation?

*Do I need new floors or can my current floors be refinished?

*How long will it take to be installed?

*Will all of the work be done by your staff or do you hire subcontractors?

*What happens if the work goes over the price you gave me before the project started?

*How do I keep it looking good afterwards?

Be careful. You get what you pay for

Be very careful of companies who give you a very low price, but won’t stick to it if the project goes over budget or tries to get you to purchase a type of flooring that won’t be durable enough for your pets and kids.

long flooring!


Old growth 9" wide southern yellow pine plank flooring reclaimed and remilled from bleacher seating provided by Abeln Floor Systems. The 16 foot lengths of the bleacher material in this kitchen allowed an installation free of butt-joints as preferred by the owner. This material was double grooved, splined and installed in a historic home in Washington, MO. Abeln Floor Systems sanded, lightly stained and applied three coats of oil-based polyurethane finish. The aged appearance is the result of about three years of ambering combined with the somewhat recent age of the material (c. 1955). This batch of flooring contains approximately 20% of "heart pine" content (the highly desirable reddish-brown color from planks milled from the center or "heart" of the tree). Note that this picture, taken in the winter when wood tends to shrink, shows a still-tight installation which is virtually unheard of for any type of wide plank flooring. Part of the reason for this is that reclaimed flooring has an extremely low moisture content which allows for superior stability and freedom from shrinkage.
