How we restore
PATIENTLY RESTORING CENTURIES-OLD TIMBER
Restoration is at the heart of the Ted Todd business; it’s where we started, how we grew and where we learned the skills required make such elegant wood floors. The culmination of this experience allows us to share with our clients wood floors with the true character and provenance of a bygone era.
The restoration work undertaken is always guided by the nature of the wood itself. Every single beam, floorboard and piece acquired is carefully assessed and selected by our restoration team before the process can begin.
The woods we restore are salvaged globally and this ever-decreasing supply of rare wood is unlikely to be available again. The buildings we source these rare finds from are often old properties constructed prior to and during the Industrial Revolution. We’ve reclaimed genuine antique Burmese teak floorboards from Asia and salvaged beams which were used as bomb defences and located in ceiling of the Old War Office in Whitehall, London.
