Our minimum order size is $1,000, which is about 100 – 150 SF of flooring or paneling.
We need a 50% deposit to put an order into process, and the balance is due before we ship. We require payment in full for stock orders.
We have several payment options:
We regularly ship throughout the US and Canada, and occasionally we work with partners to ship overseas.
No, we are material suppliers. We work with many qualified installers locally and are happy to refer you. Additionally, you can find flooring installers at National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) consumer website.
Yes! We can provide your installer reclaimed wood stair treads that are uniform and calibration sanded, and we can even trim to length and prefinish them. We also provide stair nosing for select products, call for details.
Wood flooring reacts to moisture / humidity in the environment by expanding when moisture is added and by shrinking or contracting when moisture is removed. Acclimation is the process of conditioning the moisture content of wood flooring to the environment in which it is expected to perform. The goal is to get the moisture content of the wood to be in equilibrium with the subfloor in “real world” daily living conditions, so that the wood is neither gaining nor losing moisture. This can take 1-2 weeks or longer depending on the flooring, subfloor and other factors. We recommend following National Wood Flooring Association Guidelines.
Yes! Wood is an efficient choice as it conducts heat, distributes it where you want it, and it continues to radiate the heat even after the system is off. Engineered and solid wood floors are installed over radiant floors all the time, but they do require additional steps to ensure a quality install. The National Wood Flooring Association has specific guidelines for installers to follow to ensure a great finished product. They can be found in Appendix H in the NWFA guidelines. Also, it is always important to acclimate the wood before installing, but it is of particular importance to do so with radiant heat. Specifically, the heat should be on so that the slab, subfloor and the flooring are acclimated to each other in “real world” conditions. SPECIAL NOTE: We do not warranty our products for installation over electric radiant heat, and we do not warranty Hickory engineered flooring. Other species/exclusions may apply so please consult us before ordering.
Absolutely. Jakarta Market Blend and Circle Sawn Antique are particularly good choices. They are extremely dense and hard and the natural variations in the product allow them to take a lot of wear and tear and still look beautiful.
The Janka hardness test is a consistent standard test that measures the resistance of a sample of wood to denting and wear. The higher the number, the harder the wood. Each product specification sheet on our site lists the Janka hardness of that product.
Store, handle and install per National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) or Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) guidelines.
All Jakarta Market Blend and Redwood solid paneling products are suitable for exterior use, and some doug fir products may be suitable (call). They should be back sealed before installation. We can finish it, call for details.
The short answer is sometimes, and there is probably an additional charge for this. We mix widths and lengths to optimize our wood, so that we can reclaim as much wood as we can. If we must rip wider material down to get a uniform width or spend extra time sorting for single lengths we incur material losses, additional waste and extra production time. If you have a specific application that requires this it is best to get us involved early, as we can recommend things that will meet cost and environmental goals.
Forest Stewardship Council is the global leader in preserving the world’s remaining forests, and we are proud that all of our products are FSC certified. We’ve been a member since 2006. Specific FSC Claim information is located on each product page. We are certified through Rainforest Alliance; here is our certificate.
Without fire rated treatments, our products’ flame spread range is between 76-150 (Class III or C). See the attached summary from American Wood Council, and refer to the species or mix of species in each product for detailed information.
American Wood Council keeps technical papers on code compliance.
Our Jakarta is a special case as it is a mix of tropical species. It is not practical to test all species; however, given the high silica content, low/no pitch, and the hardness of the species in the mix it is generally accepted that all species in the mix are less than 150. In practicality all are likely much lower than 150.
We can add a Class A fire rating to paneling, call us to discuss the specifics of your project.
Tons of them, including our paneling and tables. Our state-of-the-art finish shop can prefinish virtually anything we make. Stock and custom stains are also available, please call for details.
A mix of species is inherent to the product and makes it what it is. In broad terms we can color sort “light” or “dark,” but it is not practical to sort by species.
Some of our products are made from shipping dunnage, pallets and dimensional wood used for crating and transportation. The wood comes to our Material Recovery Facility (MRF) from a variety of international and domestic locations. The exterior of the wood might be rough when it gets to us, but it is completely safe for re-use in our products. We do not accept any lumber that is treated with chemicals.
All imported lumber is heat treated to conform to International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM), which involved heating the wood to 130 degrees to kill any invasive plant or animal species. We work very closely with US Customs and Border Protection to ensure we keep foreign pests out of our country. Additionally, we kiln dry all imported and most domestic lumber for both wood stability and protection from insects. You can be confident that we take material safety very seriously and stand behind our work.
Our goal is to give old lumber a second chance, in order to eliminate waste and reduce demand for new lumber. Our direct reclamation efforts are aimed at reclaiming from industrial sources, but we also partner with other reclamation / deconstruction partners as well.
When we are evaluating a new wood source, our goal is to reclaim in volume to 1) have the biggest impact on diverting good wood from the waste stream, and 2) develop a repeatable, consistent line of products our customers can rely on over time. The variability in barn wood can make that challenging. However, we do evaluate any and all offers. So the short answer is: if you have wood that looks like it might otherwise go to waste give us a call and we’ll do our best to help, either by acquiring the wood or putting you in touch with people who can put it to good use.
