Tell us about your business.Reclaimed America, LLC was born through the need to provide architectural elements to home projects.With countless junking trips throughout the United States, we felt there was a need to protect and conserve America's barns and historic building elements from landfills. Thousands of barns and historic buildings are constantly becoming the victim of demolition and its elements being disregarded and treated as waste. RA believes that each of these elements are small pieces of American History.From 200 year old barn wood to a historic staircase to an antique sailboat, we have strived to repurpose and up-cycle the past into the present. This process which includes turning historic American wood into home elements including furniture, art, apparel and even skateboards. Our hope is that Reclaimed America builds a brand that stands the test of time and expands our American Heritage abroad to other countries that recognize that Made in America is the highest stamp of quality in the world.
