Reclaimed wood is a staple when it comes to decorating and remodeling a home. Reclaimed wood offers a rustic and modern appearance with minimal cost and upkeep. There are hundreds of different species of reclaimed wood, colors, types, and companies that supply it. One of the most unique qualities of reclaimed wood is that no piece is alike. Every piece is unique and has its own tone and washed out look to it. Similar to the boards, each company that carries reclaimed wood all have the qualities that make them stand out from each other! Coeur d’Alene is a specific one that we love. They manufacture an exceptional product and also have a patented aging process that is subversive.
Coeur d’Alene’s Natural Look
One of the things that make Coeur d’Alene’s reclaimed wood stand out from other companies is the vibrant colors and look. They use a weathering process on the reclaimed wood to provide an authentic look. All of their one of a kind colors are completely natural all due to their aging process and stimulation they do on their reclaimed wood.
Coeur d’Alene’s Process
A question you’re probably wondering is how does Coeur d’Alene get this weathered look we are talking about? Well, they accelerate the natural age of the reclaimed wood. By doing this they are able to extract the natural beauty that the wood has always had. They use a combination of soil, water, sun, and wind to do this. All of these earthy materials help expose the reclaimed wood and bring out its naturalized beauty. Most reclaimed wood suppliers and manufacturers do not take the time and attention to detail to achieve this look, making it unique to Coeur d’Alene.
Coeur d’Alene’s Product Options
Coeur d’Alene offers two different options when it comes to the look and feel of the boards. They are a traditional band saw board look or a circle sawn finish. The board you choose would depend on the style and look you are wanting to achieve. The main difference in the two is how the board is cut, which sometimes can portray a certain look.
