Eco-Friendly Reclaimed Flooring
We have our own designated recycling centre where our focus is to reclaim, clean and up-cycle various brick and terracotta products. We make sure to use eco-friendly methods for the cleaning and preparing of our floorings, without the use of chemicals or detergents. This ensures the tiles are sealed without worry of effluence at a later date. We try to reduce our impact on the environment at all stages and historically only reclaim the materials from old barns and homes where demolition is the only option.
We reprocess our bricks, tiles and oak in such a way that modern techniques such as underfloor heating and screeds work exceptionally well with all our products. Due to contemporary methods in heating, terracotta tiles and brick flooring have made a revival due to their look, practicalities, and toughness. Our reclaimed brick and terracotta floors do not degrade or wear as time goes by, so you can rest assured they only improve over time and add more character to any space.
Where Do Our Materials Come From?
Our story starts back in 1985 when I met my Polish wife in the UK. Once we were married, travelling to Poland to visit her family became a regular part of our lives. It is there that I’ve uncovered the massive potential of recycled flooring materials.
In the Polish countryside, we’ve come across countless empty, derelict buildings. What striked me as fascinating about them was that despite being out of use, the bricks, oak cladding, and roof tiles were in great condition. This gave me the idea to remove the larger bricks, cut them up, and repurpose them into brick floor tiles. Our reclaimed oak flooring has been recovered mainly from old farm buildings, detected for metal and either engineered for modern underfloor heating or left as is.
Today, Lubelska brings in and recycles bricks from multiple nations across Europe, including top-notch oak cladding from the Balkan countries. By putting these materials through a rigorous recycling process, you can be guaranteed that everything that goes into your brand new rustic floors is completely eco-friendly.
Why Use Terracotta Tiles and Bricks?
Terracotta tiles and bricks have been known as great storers and conductors of heat for many centuries. 20th-century man put bricks in his night-storage heaters, the Victorians and Edwardians put heated bricks between their sheets to warm their beds and the Greeks and Romans laid terracotta tiles over heated water channels as an early form of under-floor heating.
It is only in the last decades or so that we have decided to take a leaf out of history and to start using terracotta tiles again for one of the reasons that they were first designed. Due to modern techniques in heating, terracotta tiles are making quite a resurgence as they are one of the best slow releasers of heat that can be laid on a floor.
Whether laid using modern grouts and adhesives, a mortar or even lime mortar our tiles will look beautiful within either a period or contemporary interior. Through the many projects that we have undertaken over the last few years, whether laid in churches, restaurants, pubs or homes, our floors add a foundation and a quality that will last a lifetime and increase the capital value of a building. Our reclaimed floors do not deteriorate over time, if anything, they improve.
