Reclaimed Wood & Old Fence Boards

Each with its own character, reclaimed fence boards tell a story of time faithfully spent protecting yards, weathering storms, and adding character to the surrounding areas.  From furniture to wall decoration, each board is being given a new life and a new purpose, further preserving the beauty of this natural product.

When you use reclaimed fence boards, you preserve the natural beauty that only time and mother nature can produce.  Use of old fence boards not only saves trees from being harvested, but it also prevents the lumber from being sent to landfills.

5 Items to Consider Before Purchasing Your New Fence


Deciding on the purpose of your new fence will help guide your decision on design and material choice. Are you concerned about adding beauty to your property or is security more important? Are you trying to keep your pet safely in your yard or do you want to delineate a property line?


Do you want your fence to add a particular feeling to your property? Deer fencing or ornamental aluminum fencing can preserve your view while providing a barrier.  Board on board redwood fences can provide privacy and beauty while a horizontal board fence can add a modern feel.


Material selection can greatly affect the longevity, required maintenance and cost of the fence. Ornamental iron or chain link fencing are useful when security is of great importance, while a wooden picket fence can add a classic feeling to a home.


Different materials require varying levels of maintenance. Aluminum does not rust while iron fencing will require maintenance. Wood fencing may require staining every 3-5 years, while vinyl fencing can he hosed off as required.


Are you looking for the least expensive option, or a long term solution? Wood fencing is typically the least expensive option while materials such as vinyl or composite materials may be more expensive.


If you are considering a new fence, we recommend consulting a trusted local fencing company.

Visiting a Lumber Mill

As part of our commitment to our customers, we make it a point to visit vendors and lumber mills. During our visit, we review the quality of the products, the basic business operations and the sustainability of the process and end product. On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to enjoy great weather and a tour of a lumber mill. We walked the lumber yard and watched as logs were cut into a variety of dimensions.

During our visit, we spoke with the mill operators and the lumber graders about the products we purchase. The staff was receptive to our questions and feedback and also made suggestions on product improvements. As part of our ongoing commitment, we are confident in the quality and sustainability of the lumber products we bring to our customers.
