Help keep used snow fence wood out of landfills by “repurposing” it as salvaged bridge lumber.
While most reclaimed lumber is salvaged from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories, textile mills, and warehouses, one of our biggest sources happens to be the iconic roadside snow fences in the American West.
All the reclaimed wood has a rich, weathered patina. Some of the salvaged boards will have “tan lines” as some of them crisscrossed on the structure and received different amounts of sunlight.
All this reclaimed wood from the snow fences is pressure treated. Each piece of salvaged wood will have a few bolt holes in them where the snow fence structure was bolted together. Also, some of the boards will have “tan lines” as some of them crisscrossed on the structure and received different amounts of sunlight.
Q: Can I purchase this reclaimed wood by the piece?
A: No. We sell this salvaged snow fence lumber by the bunk. There are 49 weathered boards in each bunk.
Q: Is this salvaged wood smooth?
A: No. This re-claimed lumber is rough sawn.
Q: What kind of pressure treatment did this reclaimed lumber receive?
A: Our different sources used different pressure treating methods depending on the year and the project.
Possible “Repurposes”: LEED Projects – Reclaimed Flooring – Barn Wood Siding – Recycled Corral Fencing Wood – Reclaimed Trail Decking Lumber – Salvaged Bridge Decking Wood – Architectural Salvage Wood
NOTE: While we call this repurposed snow fence, others may call it reclaimed snow fence. Funny, we’ve also heard it being called recycled snow fence. Then there are those who refer to it as scrap snow fence, seconded snow fence, junk snow fence…or maybe even salvaged snow fence! Remember, whatever “green” or sustainable phrase you want to use regarding snow fence, we’ve got it.
