The Distinctive Choice in Rustic WoodIntroducing ranchwood.™ A New Era for an Ageless Look
With ranchwood™, our all-natural handcrafted lumber, we capture the spirit of the West's windswept homesteads to produce the most environmentally friendly, unique, finished lumber products on the market. Ranchwood is durable and long lasting. The product is pre-finished with two coats of our NO VOC Seal-Once and combined with semi- transparent tint colors to provide the aged look you've been searching for.
The architectural allure of weathered barn wood is prized by craftsmen and designers. Ranchwood is seasoned to perfection, wrought with character and warmth. Your home will exude the rich patina of timeless distinction.
We also offer a fire retardant protective coating applied to our products that reduces flammability and delays its combustion. Although all wood products will burn, those that are treated will resist flames significantly better than non-treated wood. As an added insurance ask about Fire/Flame Protective Retardant Coatings on your order.
Finally, Enjoy the Seasoned Grace of Reclaimed Wood from a Sustainable Source.

With proper care, your AquaFir product will remain waterproof for years. Seal-Once is a high-performance toxin-free water-based sealer that exceeds current and future eco-requirements. By incorporating sub-micron particles a unique lattice work is formed allowing the product to sink deep below the surface. As it cures it forms an interior film that prevents water from infiltrating through the surface. You can simply re-seal exterior siding to your liking.
Seals and Protects against Water Penetration for up to 10-years.
AquaFir is so durable it comes with a 10-year limited warranty. The Seal-Once effective finish life is 5 years on horizontal surfaces, and up to 10 years on vertical surfaces.

Why an alternative to Reclaimed Wood?
Reclaimed wood has matured over time; it is durable and beautiful. However, some is acquired by dismantling historical structures and ghost towns. It is limited in quantity and costly to reclaim. Only about half of the reclaimed wood is construction quality, so up to 50% is wasted.At Montana Timber Products, we've created ranchwood as a sustainable alternative.
Our Sustainable Products
We provide a wide-range of eco-friendly, and sustainable products; made with timbers and logs that have been harvested through sustainable forestry practices. The predominant method is Single Tree Selection where foresters select individual trees for harvesting. The cut logs are then removed with the least disruption to the surrounding environment. This method creates openings in the forest canopy allowing more precipitation, sunlight, and nutrients to reach the forest floor ensuring the health of other trees.
We also promote and use sealers and finishes that have zero to low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) this far exceeds the current siding industry standards. We recycle our sawdust to be re-used by local farms for animal bedding and a local pellet manufacture. Our unique products are also made in the USA and sourced from the Northwest - locally to our production and final applications. This helps our environment in energy efficiency and to reduce costs and transportation pollutants, and more importantly our carbon footprint.
