Welcome to Heritage Antique Lumber. We are trying to make a difference in the way people look at what we use, or don’t use. For years we have been watching local barns fall in on themselves due to neglect. The wood is just as good, if not better, than when first cut, Let’s just say that it has taken a 100 year test, and any wood still hard and strong passed the test. This is the wood we are saving, marked with character and color given by the sun.
The vintage look you get with our product can’t be faked. I have seen products over the past few years that try to imitate a vintage look. Usually they just sand some edges through paint or place random dimple holes. That “vintage” piece of wood is usually particle board with a fancy paint job. The deeper we cut our wood the more color we cut through. We can take our wood and make it look the same as wood for sale in stores today. However it took the 100 year test to put that character and beauty there, so I think we should let the wood wear the badge of durability it has earned.
We look forward to working together,
