Quality, antique barn wood is vanishing in many ways. According to company owner Phillip Jarman, wood from structures built in the 1950s offer heritage and an authentic feel. Shortly after this period of time, barns were constructed using manufactured materials, which doesn’t have the natural character and quality found in raw wood.
Though Coteau Reclaimed salvages barn wood from many structures, the most coveted types of wood are chestnut, walnut, hickory, or old-growth pine. These particular woods are ideal when creating new pieces for homes that will add value, beauty, and personality.
