Centennial Woods: A Very Unique Source of Reclaimed Wood
A Road Safety Structure Results in Rustic Wood
In order to keep roads safe for drivers, snow fence boards need to be replaced when they start to show the effects of weathering. High winds, heavy snows, and the drying effects of the intense Wyoming sunlight all contribute to wood aging. These same weathering conditions is what gives this wood the starkly warm patina that makes them so beautiful as an architectural aesthetic.
Fortunately, the average length of time a snow fence board serves its safety purpose is the same amount of time it takes for its replacement to grow. Since each tree harvested for snow fence purposes is replaced with a newly planted tree, the snow fence system is self-sustaining.
Weathered snow fence boards used to be burned or thrown in the landfill after they showed signs of aging. Now, Centennial Woods replaces the aged fence boards and gives them a new purpose: beautifying your home or business. Whether Ponderosa Pine, Spruce, Lodgepole Pine, or Douglas Fir, these beautifully worn boards can bring a completely new look and a great story to the inside or outside of your home or business.
Give these salvaged boards, with their patina of time and wind and weather, a new home as part of your home’s décor. You’ll appreciate their rich textures and unique color and markings more each time you gaze at them. Contact Centennial Woods for more information.
