Architectural Pieces

Do you have Reclaimed Materials?

We purchase materials in several forms; old barns, old homesteads, churches, commercial buildings and factories, old warehouses, mills, abandoned churches and old farmhouses we seek out the unique and quality pieces of wood, brick, and architectural findings. Please contact us at americanantiquewood@gmail.com .

 

We will try our best to return your inquiry within 24 business hours. Please include a list of any materials you may have including sizes, lengths, and the type of wood, any history or date built. Please attach photos of the materials you have so that we can take a closer look.

 

Barns

If you have a barn you'd like us to take a look at, please read through the following questions and answers to give you an idea of what we're looking for.

How much is my barn worth?

Many of the barns we remove and salvage have plenty of materials to repurpose, however we do not always pay for the materials. We usually trade the cost of deconstructing the barn for the wood we can re-use.

What kind of information do you need about my barn?

Without looking at the barn first hand, we will need any photos you have of the barn, the size of the barn, and other additional details including when it was built, and if it has hand hewn timbers or circle sawn beams. We will also need the address of where the barn is located if we decide to come personally look at it after we have received all of the previous information.

When will you be available to look at my barn in person?

Due to the high volume of barn demolition and salvaging requests we get each week, it might take us a considerable amount of time before we are able to get away and personally look at your barn. However sometimes we may not have the chance to look at your barn, which is why pictures and any detailed information is necessary.

What if my barn does not have the materials you need?

If we decide your barn has very few materials we are able to repurpose, we will provide you with a demolition cost based off of our expenses in removing your barn structure.

Suppliers

If you are a supplier and have reclaimed wood materials on hand you are looking to get rid of, you've come to the right place. Before contacting us with your questions, please review the following frequently asked questions with answers. If you have any additional questions, please let us know.

What kind of materials are you interested in?

We are always looking for any materials that are unique, of good quality, and interesting. Things we may be looking for include hand hewn beams, barn siding, planks, and old original surface flooring as well as architectural pieces such as doors, metal findings and anything of reclamation value.

Are you looking for any particular type?

We deal mostly with hardwoods including; Ash, Elm, Hickory, Maple, Walnut, and White Oak. If you have any Maple, Walnut, White Oak, or Hickory, it might be worth your time to send us a picture of what you have.

How much will you pay for my materials?

A lot of different factors are involved when it comes to what we pay for your products. Quantity, size, type, and quality all come in to play when we decide to purchase materials. If you are careful in removing the barn pieces from a structure, your materials may be worth more. We will pay for what we can get out of the materials. We will not pay for rotted material. When you bring your materials in, we will measure, cut, and size the materials and pay you accordingly. We never have a set price to pay for materials.
