DDS Demolition and Architectural Salvage, reclaim timber from Century Old structures and buildings that have been designated for demolition or refurbishment.The timber is processed to provide recycled floorboards for new projects as well as conservation and restoration projects for many Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian properties.

The reclaimed timber generally grown 150 years ago, is of a very high quality and character with a patina that cannot be replicated.By using reclaimed timber and flooring it helps to minimize the impact of deforestation around the world, an alternative to cutting down more trees which helps in sustaining this valuable resource.
