Hi. I’m Chris Mech, founder of Vintage Wood Supply.
Use of reclaimed building materials not only produces beautiful results, it keeps other trees from being cut. (Even if you could still find these giants, you probably couldn’t cut them!) Many municipalities, including Eagle and Summit Counties, encourage green building practices, including the use of reclaimed building materials.
Though we stock a wide variety of reclaimed wood and fine hardwoods, here are a few of the main types available. Feel free to contact us if you need something else.
We search out the wide and long boards to provide a consistent look for exterior siding or interior paneling/wainscot applications. Painted or unpainted, gray, faded red or golden brown, it’s usually a softwood, but sometimes hardwoods are available. Barn siding is sold by the square foot and usually varies from about ½” to 1″ thickness.
Whether you seek the rustic look of hand-hewn beams or the more refined look of machine sawn timbers, we have or can get the ones you need. Many of these were cut from hardwoods, so while they may be over 100 years old, they’re still solid as a rock. Use them on ceilings, as decorative posts or for fireplace mantels.
At Vintage Wood Supply, we pride ourselves on finding the big boards. From white oak bar tops to oversized live edge walnut slabs, we scour the country for the best deals on the good stuff. Therefore, when we get something at a good price, we can sell it to you at a price that won’t require a second mortgage.
We request that you us a call before you come to make sure someone will be there to help you. Please zoom in on this map to see our exact location. Note that once on County Rd 19, you need to go about 1/4 mile to the first right (at Dead End sign). Turn right and go about 100 yards across creek to the house that’s on the creek, on the right side.
Keep in touch!
