Antique lumber prices?

kelvanceFebruary 18, 2012

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with what antique lumber is going for? I am getting ready to tear down my old home and have a guy from a vintage log company to check it out, and I don't want to get jipped on the prices. I can only find what the reclaimed compaines sell them for, not what they pay for them.

Heres is what I have:

pine trim (excellent condition)

maple flooring (around 1000sq ft, all in good shape)

chesnut and hemlock (walls floor joists etc.)

of course that will depend, are you removing the wood from the house, pulling any nails or screws and stacking it for them to pick up with a fork lift of some sort. If they have to do anything other than pick the wood up the price will go down accordingly.
