New Guide to Architectural Antiques Companies Solves Challenge of Finding or Selling Vintage Building Elements
300-plus sources help consumers, dealers locate antique lumber, garden and architectural antiques
ROCKY MOUNT, Va., (Oct. 15, 2010) The new 2010-11 Guide to Architectural Salvage, Antique Lumber, and Garden Antiques Companies solves the problem of locating sellers of antique building elements and vintage lumber, particularly when it comes to finding suppliers online or outside of major metropolitan areas.
“The popularity of architectural antiques continues to grow, driven in part by consumers as well as designers and architects using the historic materials to restore a period building or to add character to a project,” says Rich Ellis, founder of The Guide, as well as the bi-monthly industry news publication Architectural Salvage News. “But finding architectural antiques, whether you’re interested in buying or selling, has always proved difficult unless you’re in a metropolitan area or have specific knowledge of a particular architectural antiques company. The Guide solves this problem by listing what we believe is nearly every architectural salvage and antique lumber company in the U.S.”
Ellis adds that Guide’s detailed information is a result of the knowledge his company gained over the last five years as the founders and publishers of Architectural Salvage News, the bi-monthly news publication for the industry, homeowners, architects and designers.
“The continued growth of green building practices, coupled with LEED credits, are also helping drive demand for architectural antiques in both commercial and residential construction projects,” Ellis says. “Reclaimed antique building materials, whether an antique mantel, stained glass window or antique lumber, are the original green building materials because they’re recycled, with an added bonus of being accompanied by a story or history, as well as superior craftsmanship and uniqueness. ”
The 64-page color Guide features detailed listings on approximately 300 architectural salvage and antique lumber companies nationwide, organized by state, and provides contact information for each business. Additionally, the website address for each company is included as many companies have their inventory listed and priced online.
The Guide is available in either a printed version for $9.99, shipping and handling included, or $3.99 for an emailed e-book, at www.architecturalsalvagenews.com.
