Reclaimed Timber Trusses
American Pole & Timber manufactures, upon your request, custom timber trusses from reclaimed timbers. Your reclaimed wood trusses can be made in any design from nearly any species depending upon the availability of reclaimed wood in the species of your choice.
What is Reclaimed Wood?
Reclaimed wood is any wood which has been removed from an existing structure or long-ago harvested wood which may not have completed its journey to a sawmill.
An example of harvested, yet un-milled, wood is commonly referred to as “sinker” timbers — logs that sank to the bottom of a river or lake (usually during transport) and were recovered years later. Reclaimed wood may also include “blow stack” or other wood from natural disasters.
To become “reclaimed” the wood is taken from its current application or location and remanufactured into other products such as flooring, beams, or (as in our case) timber trusses. Some products require no remanufacturing and can simply be reused or installed as they are.
Available Reclaimed Species
The most common types of reclaimed timbers used for timber trusses are:
Other species are available with time. We work with a network of mills and reclaimed timber suppliers nationwide to source reclaimed timbers for custom timber trusses.
We understand that you may have reclaimed wood that is important to you for sentimental or historical reasons. We can work with timbers or lumber you supply to create timber trusses, corbels, or other unique custom products. Call us at 1 (800) 716-0636 to discuss the details.
