Salvaged Wood Siding


We're residing our Victorian home this fall. This will include complete removal of the 5000 sqft or so of existing 130 year old wood siding. Does anyone know if there's a market for this material? Selling it as salvaged/vintage or the like?

Salvaged Wood Siding


What type of "wood"? Maybe, if it has any value, you can get some $$$ from Craigslist?

Salvaged Wood Siding


Painted??? Probably not a big market on hazardous material.

Salvaged Wood Siding


From what we've gathered, the wood appears to be cedar or cypress.

The previous homeowner spent a small fortune having the siding stripped bare. She then re-painted it, so the paint does not contain lead and should be easily removed.
