Product & Process

Company background and the Process of Reclaimed Wood & Timber

Experts in the field of sourcing reclaimed timber products to our customers throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, supplying reclaimed timber and wood flooring products using timber suitable for renovation and new build projects.

Company Background

Period Timber was founded by David Swift and Nigel Simpson. Both David and Nigel have been salvaging reclaimed timber for over 30 years in both the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. Reclaimed Timber is sourced, bought, salvaged, stripped and sold nationally from demolition sites directly using our sister company S&S Reclamation Ltd, based at Nottinghamshire in the heart of the U.K.

It’s our aim to provide the very best
sustainable reclaimed timber products and services to our customers

Because we salvage the raw materials / timber and wood products direct from source, we can be sure that the timber we reclaim is sustainable and eco friendly, being recovered from redundant buildings in the correct manner, therefore also keeping costs to a minimum – these savings are then passed onto our customer.
The reclaimed timber is then transported back to our central warehouses for final grading
We have found that that very little grading takes place at the warehouse as it is primarily done on site.)

Located in the heart of Robin Hood country, near Sherwood Forest (the home of the Major Oak), Period Timber are one of the U.K’s leading stockists and suppliers of reclaimed natural timber and wood flooring. Our reclaimed timber and reclaimed wood flooring products typically range from 100 – 300 years old. We supply many other reclaimed flooring companies, architects and specifyers, English Heritage and the National Trust, together with private renovations and new home builders whom all trust and respect the products and services that we deliver.
