We’re Here To Help
How did you get into this?
A. Jacob Shannon has been a Licensed General Contractor for nearly 10 years in Denver, so making the transition to a niche.
What is reclaimed lumber?
A. Reclaimed lumber is wood that has been salvaged from an existing structure with the sole purpose of repurposing the material in an effort to relieve stress on our forests from the lumber industry while minimizing our environmental impact in our own communities.
What’s your return policy?
A. Once an item is cut, or a product built, there are no returns. If the material is uncut, we’ll do our best to help.
Do you exchange items?
A. We will exchange extremely damaged boards if they make it into your order. In their own nature, reclaimed wood is rough, so this should be expected.
Do you ship items?
A. We most certainly ship nationwide.
What is the preferred methods of preparation and cleaning of raw lumber?
A. Typically, we use 220 grit sand paper to clean and polish the surface of the piece. After that, we use compressed air to clean the wood and from then it’s really the preference of the customer if we coat the piece with a sealant. Typical sealants are a satin polyacrylic, satin spar urethane, and stain urethane.
Do you cut your material to specific sizes for a project?
A. We will be happy to cut any material to help you get the material in your vehicle, but if you’d like us to cut the entire project, you should just have us build the whole piece for you. 🙂
What types of wood are used for repurposed wood?
A. Another good question! Most typically in our region we get some species of Pine and Fir. Hardwoods were used sparingly out West and are found more frequently once you’re in the Midwest and heading East of which, Oak, Walnut, and Maple are a few examples.
Where do you source your reclaimed lumber?
A. We source our lumber here in the great heart of America!
Do you create custom projects?
