“Building the ultimate dream home, whether for yourself or a client,
involves thousands of details. Finding the right materials to be customized
to your exact specifications can be challenging - as can getting accurate
information and quality service - which is why we founded
Distinctive Building Materials.
specializes in antique building materials and rare sizes of
wood which have been reclaimed from old barns, mills and factories which
have been slated for demolition. We salvage these timbers and mill them into
wide plank flooring.
Each of our antique floors is custom designed and handcrafted to meet the
standards of the most discriminating client. The result: floors with beauty
and integrity of a century ago, yet are easy to install, extremely stable
and as unique as the people for whom they are created. Other timbers we
salvage remain as beams and hence become a stunning focal point for any
home. These beams are custom milled to your requirements. Our clients also
like the option of using antique wood for their cabinets and doors. We are
happy to provide rough stock to a millwork shop of your choice or we will have
them manufactured for you.
we take the time to get to know each of our clients. We will be happy to
meet with you at our office or at your job site. Our clients are
contractors, architects, designers and the most discerning home owners who
have an appreciation for the reclamation of antique woods. We will educate
you about our products, suggest options, and help you create continuity
throughout your home or business. Since everything we do is custom, we can
suggest details that will enhance your vision of what the home should be.
By overseeing every step, from our initial meeting, to delivery,
installation and follow-up, we assure you that everything you select from
Distinctive Building Materials
will meet or exceed your expectations.”
