The Lumber Baron’s Forever Floors- Reclaimed Doug Fir Flooring.
Create your own Legacy. Introducing our “Forever Floors,” 2×6 t&g, clear vertical grain flooring, reclaimed from the Sears factory store in San Leandro. The material carries the Weyerhaeuser Lumber Mill’s legendary “4–SQUARE” lumber stamp, a symbol that came to signify the premier douglas fir product in the construction industry. It met Japan’s high standards and instantly became the country’s preferred import grade. Measuring 1-5/8” thick with a full 5″ face, these floors could be refinished numerous times for generations to come.
It’s amazing some retailers are able to sell their flooring as genuine “wood” products. Often made of thin veneer strips on top of plywood, most new wood flooring options have little in common with products of the past. Check out these reasons why you may want to install one of our solid, sustainable flooring products, instead of the options you’ll find at other flooring stores.
• Many new products are made from glues and other dangerous chemicals that off-gas over time. You’ll find no chemicals in our solid, sustainable, flooring products.
• Short lengths look busy and cheap. Why deal with 1′, 2′ and 3′ increments when you can install long lengths instead. Our usable length average generally pushes 10′ in our sustainable flooring products.
• Wear and tear is inevitable with wood flooring over time. Try refinishing a veneered “wood” floor. You’ll be lucky if you can sand it once without exposing the mystery plywood beneath.
• It always saddens me to see cheap flooring installed in the old craftsman homes in the area. Maintain the integrity of your home! Replace or repair what was there. Many times it was old growth vertical Douglas Fir, one of our stocked items.
