RECLAIMED TERRACOTTA TILES, BRICK FLOOR TILES & OAK
When we started Lubelska we felt it was important to not only provide a great product but stay true to offer bespoke reclaimed flooring using sustainable materials. We have been careful to stay true to what we love and so have chosen a range of 13 bespoke brick and Terracotta floor tiles and 3 reclaimed oak floor styles that we are proud to supply.
You can be sure you’re getting a unique and original floor.
We have our own designated re-cycling 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 from old barns and homes where demolition is the only option.
We re-process 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 with time, you can rest assured they only improve over time and add more character to any space.
Our reclaimed oak flooring has been recovered mainly from old farm buildings, detected for metal and either engineered for mordern underfloor heating of left as is.
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.
