I have a client that wants to use reclaimed timbers as structural elements for a project (rustic exposed timber trusses). I told him that, in addition to visual classification of the components, I would need to have some testing done to verify the material. The project is relatively small and I stressed that it would be less costly to use new timber material that is already classified. He may want to go with the reclaimed timbers anyway. I am getting more and more requests for reclaimed timber use, so I would be interested in any experiences the community has had with them. Thanks in advance for any comments you can provide.
