Ranch House Doors takes incredible pride in our Vintage Collection Full Custom garage doors.  Our Vintage Collection Full Custom garage doors use reclaimed vintage wood and this separates Ranch House Doors from other wood garage door companies.  We are artisans.  Our doors are the expression of our custom wood smiths and craftsman using seasoned and reclaimed lumber, some of which is up to 200 years old, to create your vision and dream garage door.   Our use of seasoned vintage old growth lumber is un-paralleled.  Using reclaimed timbers, rustic vintage wood, and antique wood reclaimed from the de-construction of antiquated vintage wood structures.  Our lumber products include west coast species such as Douglas fir, larch, redwood, and cedar.  The mid-west and east coast vintage wood products include reclaimed barn wood, recycled barn beams, rustic barn siding, and reclaimed antique barn wood flooring.
 
Recycled lumber and reclaimed wood to a large degree, result from original stands of old growth forest. Reclaimed vintage wood has unparalleled architectural quality and character, making it perfect for the Ranch House Doors Vintage Collection garage door.   Old reclaimed lumber like old barn wood is prized by home builders and by Ranch House Doors for its low moisture content which leads to stability in exposed applications. 

Antique or Vintage wood is unrivaled in terms of the beauty of its patina. This is due to the natural aging process. As the wood dries and ages, the oxidation occurring on the surface creates the patina which is difficult to artificially recreate on new lumber.   If the reclaimed wood was located inside the building and not exposed to the elements, it will generally retain its original colors although mellower. If exposed to the elements, like exterior barn siding, the patina will be a shade of gray with the original colors just below the surface.  The history of the building in which the reclaimed wood was located can also contribute to its appearance.  Reclaimed wood flooring from a warehouse will retain the original scrapes and scratches even after sanding.  Reclaimed hand hewn barn beams carry the marks from the adz ax which was used to size the beam originally.

Reclaimed barn wood, salvaged lumber, recycled beams, and vintage timber generally contain varying degrees of wood character marks which result from previous joinery. These include bolt holes, nail holes, mortises, notches, and the seasoning checks which appear as the material air dries over the years. The Ranch House Door Vintage Collection garage doors are available “as is” with all the original character of the lumber OR the reclaimed lumber can be re-manufactured with a sawn, hand hewn, sanded, or surfaced appearance to your specifications, including products milled free of character marks. The reclaimed barn wood products come with their own inherent character and usually only require a light sanding to enhance the appearance.  Reclaimed wood flooring products are available in a variety of species, sizes, and surface appearances.

At Ranch House Doors we take great pride in all of our Vintage Collection garage doors and we work closely with the home owner, architect, and builder to create the perfect reclaimed wood garage door.  At Ranch House Doors we are re-defining the entrance.
