6 Reasons to Make Reclaimed Wood Part of Your New Year

Welcome to 2022! If you made a New Year’s resolution to finally tackle that home improvement project you’ve been talking (and talking!) about, we want you to know that reclaimed wood planks can be a great way to take your project to the next level.

Why should you use reclaimed wood planks for your next project?  

  1. Reclaimed wood planks are a more environmentally friendly option. When you use reclaimed wood planks, it lessens the demand for new timber. That not only preserves trees, it reduces the greenhouse gas emissions produced in the harvesting, processing and shipment of virgin lumber. Using repurposed wood also reduces the amount of material going into landfills across the country. (That incredible barn wood accent wall you’re planning will look much so much better in your house than it would in a landfill!)
  2. Reclaimed planks can save you money on your energy bills. Reclaimed wood planks effectively work as an insulator, helping to keep South Florida’s hot, humid air outside. 
  3. Rustic wood planks have personality. Newly manufactured wood planks are designed to create a uniform look. Repurposed wood, on the other hand, tells a story. When looking at beautiful weathered oak planks, you can imagine the warmth of countless sunsets baking into the wood and perhaps see where a nail once held it in place. 
  4. Repurposed wood connects us to history. The reclaimed wood planks that are available today come from the barns, warehouses and factories where previous generations worked hard in pursuit of their American dream. 
  5. Reclaimed wood is gorgeous! The distinctive look of reclaimed wood planks will add a level of originality and flair to any home improvement project.
  6. And, when you buy your reclaimed wood planks from A&S A&S Reclaimed Wood you are supporting a family-owned small business in South Florida!
