Reclaimed wood and other
materials has become a popular choice for cosmetic finishes including
cabinets, flooring, siding, fencing, and furniture. Repurposed lumber is
also a good choice for framing, countertops in the the kitchen or living
areas and most outdoor patio fixtures and furniture.
Reusing lumber is one of
the best ways to keep perfectly good wood products from ending up in the
dump. Because of the aging process and weathering effects these reclaimed
panels or planks have, we can achieve a unique look and give your projects
a custom finish. The rich looking character and imperfections found in
reclaimed wood sets off any room.
We choose only hardy pieces
of wood or other reclaimed materials with an eye to safety. Painted
wood of the past may have lead based paints or other saw mill treatments.
We know what to look for and make sure those products are not used in your
home or business.
