Premium Beams + Timber — the Building Blocks of American History
In search of reclaimed wood beams for a one-of-a-kind, eye-catching look for your home? We offer the finest, structural, architectural and beautiful wood beams and timber available.
Each reclaimed beam has its own history. Wooden barns and stables were once the foundations of America's agrarian society, built with care and supported by strong wooden beams. Today, those reclaimed wood beams gain new life as rustic timbers for your home, deck or patio, giving your home a timeless yet functional aesthetic.
Our solid hand-hewn beams, which we specially select for their quality and appearance, can become a thing of beauty for the interior or exterior of your home. Whether you choose oak beams or another type of wood, you can use them for a rustic fireplace mantel, as wooden ceiling beams, or together with reclaimed wood planks for your deck or patio. Their structural and decorative purposes are limited only by your imagination.
In addition, repurposing reclaimed wood beams demonstrates your dedication to preserving our nation's past and to a sustainable future. All our reclaimed wood beams qualify for LEED points under the materials and resources category and are guaranteed to last. Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re repurposing wood that might otherwise be lost.
SOLID FACTORY BEAMS
Our authentic factory beams are specially prepared to create a more modern, surface appeal. We achieve this by lightly sanding our century-old, reclaimed beams which softens the texture and blends in some marks of age, surface imperfections and/or irregularities in shape. This technique enhances the wood's grain, bringing to the surface a texture and pattern dating back nearly a century or more.
HAND-HEWN BARN BEAMS
For our hand-hewn beams, we reclaim wooden beams harvested more than a century ago and hand-crafted by master craftsmen using small axes. These old wooden barn beams were commonly used as support structures in barns and wooden buildings. All of these timber beams feature authentic cuts, mortises and notches from the early beam-and-post framing technique.
ROUGH SAWN BARN BEAMS
Our rough-sawn beams feature the original saw marks common in the era of steam-powered and water-powered saw blades. Rough-sawn barn beams feature a cleaner, more even surface than our hand-hewn beams, though you'll still enjoy the natural checking, weathered grain, saw marks and nail holes that mark their authenticity. These prized barn beams are for sale upon request only; please call for availability.
