Having been in the demolition business for my entire life and preceded by three other generations I'm well versed in all types of demolition. Unlike my forefathers the one type of project I had never experienced is a large scale wood reclamation project (largest prior project generated +/- 12,000 board feet).
With that desire, and sadly lack of corresponding knowledge, I took on an enormous reclamation project in Chicopee, Ma. This six story, 475 foot long structure had great wood and brick which was all desired by numerous local buyers. Soon after starting the problems began...local wood buyers began quoting one price, showing up with a payment far shorter, endless haggling and my favorite viewing the wood, pricing the wood and then showing up and saying the wood that was there wasn't the wood they originally looked at.
During the course of one particularly trying day I got a random call from Paul Atkinson, I was dismissive, he was persistent. He knew wood and I had wood and we made a deal. Nothing more than what I had been hoping for.
Since that time we have shipped over 200,000 board feet of wood from this project and have locked up (3) additional projects that will yield between 150-200,000 board feet of reclaimed lumber. That wood too will go to Southend Reclaimed.
Simplify the process and contact Southend Reclaimed, the call lets you focus on what you do while maximizing the return on your antique brick and lumber.
