Stout's Pub Floor - Into the Kiln

Our wood air dries for one hundred years or more, but kiln drying ensures that all of our products are top quality. Especially with floors, it is important to have consistent low level moisture content. Low moisture content stabilizes the wood so that we can be confident that the floors won’t cup or buckle over time. It also guarantees that no living organisms inhabit the wood. The time it takes a load of wood to reach it's optimal moisture level varies from several days up to a week. We expect this particualar floor to be ready to come out of the kiln for final processing by end of the week.
