There was a time when wood was a major building material for homes, barns, and other buildings needed by man. This was due to the easy availability of the wood from forests and trees that grew around the places where such wood was required.
Wood is still used in construction, but the dearth of forests and the need for protecting the environment has led to its use becoming expensive. Old buildings still exist all over the world and those that have fallen into disuse have become a source of reclaimed wood that can then be used for creating any wooden furniture, doors, floors, or others.
This wood is given some treatment after being removed from its original location, and this refurbished wood undergoes a process of cleaning, removal of nails and other fixtures before it is offered for sale. Because of its age, this wood is dry, highly seasoned, and gives wood that is highly durable.
