Reclaimed New York water tower redwood flooring
Beautiful reclaimed New York water tower redwood flooring in these client photos. The product is called Red Sky #6
There's a lot more on that here: The New York City skyline is legendary for its skyscrapers, architecture and the water towers on nearly every building over six stories tall. The water towers started to appear in New York City in the 1800’s as a way to bring water to upper floors in taller buildings. The redwood tanks were built and installed by barrel makers during that time. Each tank was held together with only steel straps with no adhesive to keep the contents pure. Each tank has a life span of approximately 40 years. These timeless structures are a signature of New York just like Central Park. Now we reclaim that redwood and upcycle it into many other products.
