What to Expect with Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed Wood Textures

NOTHING compares to reclaimed wood. Each piece has its very own uniqueness and characteristics that can’t be duplicated or replicated. Sure, you can try and obtain the antique look in new wood, but it’s not the same. 

When renovating a home, old or new, many homeowners aim to develop a home’s uniqueness and look for one-of-a-kind materials to utilize. Unlike other materials whose appeal lie in their looks, reclaimed wood has beauty and history.

So once you’re made the decision to add reclaimed wood to your home, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Each piece is unique. You will not find two pieces that look exactly the same. We can’t stress this one enough. 
  • As we mentioned earlier, nothing compares to reclaimed wood. It has character that cannot be mimicked. 
  • The wood has often been exposed to the elements since the 1800s making it stronger than many newer woods. 
  • Don’t be fooled by “rustic” wood – reclaimed wood originates from actual beams, floors or other pieces of lumber from a structure, such as a barn or warehouse.

Reclaimed wood makes a stylistic statement about homeowners and their homes. If you’re looking to add reclaimed wood to your home, come to a trusted supplier, like us!
