ranchwood™, the distinctive choice for rustic wood, is the product of choice for owners desiring the weathered appearance of reclaimed barnwood at a fraction of the cost. Owners appreciate the various color, texture, and profile selections available. These options, and the prefinished aspects of ranchwood™ are a few of the many reasons why our customers appreciate how our products accentuate the exterior or interior of their home, barn, or commercial building.
Benefits of ranchwood™ include the prefinished nature of the product, a kiln dried and stable full dimension rough cut Douglas Fir or Cedar substrate, that makes ranchwood™ a product that’s easier to install. ranchwood™ is manufactured in a variety of dimensions, profiles, and color selections, which provides owners with a large menu of options from which to choose.
ranchwood™-The Next Reclaimed Barnwood Of The West.
We also offer a fire retardant protective coating that when applied to our products reduces flammability and delays combustion meeting WUI standards across the country. 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.
Our distinct style enhances the beauty & texture of wood; while providing long-lasting protection, low maintenance, and an environment friendly product.
Why an alternative to Reclaimed Wood?
Reclaimed wood has matured over time; it is durable and beautiful. However, most of the reclaimed wood 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, therefore 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 minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. This method creates openings in the forest canopy allowing more precipitation, sunlight, and nutrients to reach the forest floor which ensures the health of other trees.
We also promote and use sealers and finishes that have zero to low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). We have chosen to utilize these products because they exceed the current siding industry standards and address the environmental concerns of our customers. We recycle our sawdust to be re-used by local farms for animal bedding and a local pellet manufacturer. Our unique products are made in the USA and sourced from the Northwest - local to our production and final application facility. This preserves our environment by improving energy efficiency while reducing transportation pollutants, and more importantly our carbon footprint.
Sustainable and Renewable, Reduces Forest Fire Fuels, and Preserves History
With proper care, your ranchwood™ 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 the surface. You can simply re-seal exterior siding to your liking.
