The Benefits of Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed Wood for Sale in Portland, OR

There are many outstanding benefits to using reclaimed wood, for example, in construction fewer materials are wasted and thrown away, which helps preserve the environment. Reclaimed wood includes such items as antiques, dead trees, scrap wood, pallets, and much more. With fewer trees available it’s important to preserve the remaining forests, woods, and jungles. When reclaimed wood is used, it prevents the need for cutting down more trees. Other benefits include all of the following:

  • Animals like birds and squirrels in the woods rely on trees to both live in and feed on. Insects also feed on bark. Without trees, these living creatures might disappear.
  • Reclaimed wood has already aged and is stronger and more durable than wood made from newer timber. Its age has allowed it to weather the seasons and stand the test of time; its grain is also much more dense than new wood.
  • Reclaimed wood is attractive as the tree rings are wide and it contains more knots, which add a charming look that gives it character.
