Custom Milling Reclaimed Wood
We offer our customers a variety of reclaimed wood products ranging from barn wood siding to pre finished engineered flooring. No job is to big or too small! We reclaim wood that was salvaged from centry old building that were built using old growth wood that has stood the test of time and carries a uniqued story.
Barns serve as one of the most common structures for reclaimed wood. In the early 19th century the wood used to build barns was harvested from trees located on the property which were typically a mixed variety of Oak, American Chestnut, and Pine. The wood was hand hewn or squared with an adse, and joined using mortise and tendon building practices.
During the industrial revolution commercial building was kicked into overdrive, wood became America's choice building product because it was relatively inexpensive and abundantly available in the South's vast 140,000 square mile Long Leaf Pine forests. The demand for quality wood building products shot through the roof, America's virgin growth forests were clear-cut and floated down the river to nearby milling facilities where they were processed and used to build massive factories that would often spend over a million square feet.
When one of these buildings becomes out aged and no longer has an economic or reuse possibility it can be deconstructed and many of the building materials can be reclaimed, recycled and re-used in modern building projects. It's estimated that 31 percent of the material in a landfill is wood. By doing our part to recycle the wood we are extending the life spans of a region's landfill, reducing our carbon footprint, and saving American Natural resources for generations to come.
Processing Reclaimed Wood
Once we have our salvaged wood transported to one of our production facilities the wood is carefully examined and all metal is removed. After the wood is metal free it is ready to be re-sawn into smaller more workable sections. From there the wood is kiln dried for usually a period of 5 days, until the moisture content of the wood is lowered to a more stable 8-9 percent moisture content. All farm odors and any small bugs hiding in the wood are baked out in the kiln and the wood is less likely to expand or contract after installation.
