ranchwood™ Reclaimed Barn Wood Alternative – a Family and Pet Safe Solution

Where: New Jersey

What: Zoo Giraffe Exhibit

Solution: Circle Sawn Shiplap and Channel Rustic siding

Product:  ranchwood™ custom color

Montana Timber Products was founded off of a goal to create beautiful, environmentally friendly, natural wood siding products. This week’s featured project, The Giraffe House zoo exhibit had to follow strict guidelines when choosing building materials. Typically, zoo guidelines require that all materials that could potentially be eaten by an animal to not contain harmful chemicals. All of Montana Timber Products natural wood reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed barn wood alternatives are sealed with Seal-Once, a 100% NO VOC waterproofer with a 10 year limited warranty against water ingress and safe for interior and exterior use, pets and children.


This featured project utilizes Montana Timber Products’ ranchwood™ reclaimed barn wood alternative siding. ranchwood™, the flagship product, is a reclaimed barn wood alternative. This means that it is milled from new, rough stock, kiln dried, chemical free wood. It is then put through a texturizing and coloring process to create the aesthetic beauty of rustic wood siding. Authentic reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed barn wood alternatives are both great choices for your next home project. However, ranchwood™ reclaimed barn wood alternative is typically less expensive than authentic reclaimed barn wood while still offering a rustic wood beauty.


Vintage wood, reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed barn wood alternatives are very popular building materials due to their aesthetic beauty, traditional look, and chemical free finish. If the environmentally friendly aspect of natural wood siding is important to you, be sure to do your homework when choosing your siding, interior accents, trim, timbers, or other wood siding products. Some companies choose to use degenerative chemicals to achieve the desired look and texture of rustic wood siding. The most commonly seen rustic siding texture options are Circle Sawn and Wire Brushed. The Circle Sawn texture commonly seen on rustic reclaimed barn wood is created from the large circular saw blades used in more traditional milling practices. The Wire Brushed option, like the Circle Sawn, adds physical and aesthetic depth to the wood grain. In addition to the aesthetic beauty added from the texturing process, greater surface area is created, which allows the Seal-Once, 100% NO VOC waterproofer to more effectively penetrate the wood.


Whether you are looking for siding, beams, flooring, or interior accents, Montana Timber Products offers a solution for your rustic needs. All Montana Timber Products’ prefinished wood siding utilizes Seal-Once, a 100% NO VOC waterproofer with a 10 year limited warranty against water ingress.
