Jeld-Wen reclaims fir snow fencing for windowsKLAMATH FALLS, OR

-  Jeld-Wen says it is the first major door and window manufacturer to offer reclaimed wood window and door products as part of the company's Custom Wood line.

Made from Douglas fir that  originally used for fencing, barns, houses and factories, Jeld-Wen says the durable wood has a rustic appearance. Douglas fir is known for its hardiness, consistent grain pattern and natural golden tones that may deepen over time. One source of Jeld-Wen's reclaimed wood material is from snow fencing, used
to prevent snowdrifts along highways in states such as Wyoming

"This material has been painstakingly brought back to life in a way that enhances the natural, original characteristics of the wood," says  Brian Hedlund, Jeld-Wen product marketing manager. "Every reclaimed window and door we make is truly one-of-a-kind, each with its own unique style and an interesting story to tell as well." 

Reclaimed wood options include weathered, skip planed and planed finishes for doors, and planed finishes for windows, giving homeowners the option to mix and match window and door styles or achieve a coordinated look. Jeld-Wen Custom Reclaimed Wood windows are available with exterior cladding in a variety of colors; the interior of the windows reflect the unique characteristics of the reclaimed material.
