Recycling The Past travels the US looking to salvage materials from barns, factories, and warehouses and across America. Old timbers, wood decking and barn siding are some of the most sought after recycled materials available. Reclaimed wood is transformed into tongue and groove flooring, table tops, wall cladding, siding, and post and beam construction. Other sources for reclaimed lumber are dead standing forests due to blights or fire. Species such as Oak, Chestnut, Pine and Maple are among the most common reclaimed material.
