Revient Quality Control Process
It takes salvaged wood many steps to get to nail-ready material, and we will do as little or as much as you would like. There are three general stages: (1) visually de-nailed and generally sorted, (2) milled, and (3) nail-ready. One way we differentiate ourselves is by offering this ‘nail-ready’ option.
We refer to these next 15 steps as the ‘Revient Quality Control Process’. Because in the reclaimed wood business, quality control must be addressed at every level.
- Material is carefully selected when salvaged from the original structure
- Visual de-nailing, end cutting and preliminary sorting by species takes place on site
- Pressure washed to rid of surface dirt as needed
- Stickered to air dry in climate controlled warehouse
- De-nailed with metal detector; Pull form and approved samples reviewed by warehouse to determine acceptability of material for order
- Treated for insects; Kiln-dried if required
- Straight line edged
- Sorted by widths
- Planed or re-sawn to required thickness
- Surface cleaned with special nylon brush
- Sorted by patina and final scan for embedded metal; Photographed for customer approval before final processing
- Processed in moulder for back relief cuts, and to profile and surface specification (skip-planed or smooth top).
- Square cut ends & Final review of order requirements and packing instructions
- All material defected based on approved samples and customer expectations
- Final visual inspection as palletized, banded and wrapped for storage or shipment
We take quality control seriously, and will always stand behind our product.
