Simply put, reclaimed wood is lumber that has a second life and use after it has served its original purpose. Are there differences in quality and consistency depending on the source of reclaimed wood? Most suppliers of genuine reclaimed wood have limited supplies due to sourcing issues caused by having to find usable wood from all around the country. This results in boards with inconsistent dimensions and quality. Often boards reclaimed from the same barn can look completely different, especially the boards that were southern-facing and exposed to sunlight all year.
Centennial Woods runs the largest and most consistent system to create real and sustainable reclaimed wood boards. Our wood ages as fence slats for approximately 10 years. Some sections of our 12’ tall fences are over a mile long with the boards all facing in the same direction resulting in consistent, natural coloration.
