“We worked on a family room remodel this year and were looking at different ideas including a barn sided focal wall. We visited Matt at Antique Beams and Boards and told him what we were thinking about doing. He worked with us on our project and provided excellent service and barn siding. The focal wall turned out just beautiful and drove the rest of the remodel. When we were ready for the mantle, Matt helped us find exactly the right mantle for our project. He has an excellent selection of wood products from a couple of boards or a whole house remodel. I would not hesitate to use or recommend Matt and Antique Beams and Boards for future projects.” Houzz Reviewer – mrsmav10

We were fortunate enough to find Matt Gleckler and his company, Antique Beams & Boards, while building our new home in Northern Ohio. We had a vision for incorporating reclaimed wood in a few strategic locations throughout our custom home. Working with Matt, our creativity flowed once we realized the beauty in reclaimed wood in his inventory along with his skills in producing a variety of finishes. Our sun room and stair case are completely finished in reclaimed; barn doors and media nook in a spare bedroom each feature differing colors based on sanding process. Large beams anchor the stair case railings (also reclaimed) and our master bedroom ceiling is “trimmed” in continuous hand hewn beams reduced to 2 x 7”. Matt worked with us throughout our project and met every deliverable … even with last minute additions and changes! Matt, along with his team, is completely customer focused. We highly recommend Matt and Antique Beams & Boards.” Houzz Reviewer – bellamma

I ordered an antique beam to use as a mantle on a fireplace remodel. Matt was fantastic to work with and the mantle was shipped to my client in Michigan quickly with no issues!! I am hoping to use more reclaimed beams on another project soon. Thanks Matt and team at Antique Beams and Boards!” Abigail Hayden Interior Design

We could not be happier with our new mantle!!!!!! Matt came recommended by a friend of a friend. My husband and I went to Antique Beams and Boards and Matt was very friendly and extremely helpful. He talked to us about what we wanted then showed us around and explained our options. We gave him our dimensions, and within a couple days, he called us back with a quote. We placed the order and had our new mantle within a couple weeks. We stained it to the color we wanted, and now have a beautiful hand hewn antique barn beam mantle!” Houzz Reviewer – nicfresh

My husband and I are so thrilled with our old reclaimed antique beams we purchased from Matt!!!! Not only was he “warm & friendly” on the phone he followed thru with what we had discussed and made sure that Kenny and I were completely happy and satisfied with our purchase. I found Matt’s info on which prompted me to pull his website up online. He was quick, precise and super kind and knowledgeable concerning his beams! I would definitely use his business again and HiGHLY recommend “Antique Beams & BOARDS”!!!!!!! Matt helped me thru a stressful time (did not like beams we had ordered from a different wood company) and expedited the delivery all the way to Knoxville, TN even during the snow and rushed the delivery for us! Thanks again! Tracy & Kenny – Knoxville, TN

We were dead in the water on our project in California because we had received an inferior product from another company. I called Matt at Antique Beams and Boards and he understood immediately the specific look and configuration of the beams we needed (including hollowing out a beam to exact specifications to fit over a structural member in our project) and got everything we needed shipped to us in record time and no delay to our project. We are very thankful and completely happy with the product and service. Thanks Matt!” Houzz Reviewer – japdee1

This company was super responsive–excellent customer service, great product and excellent prices. From the moment we were in touch with them, they could not have been more accommodating. Their wood floor samples were sent straightaway, cross country, free of charge. After receiving the beautiful reclaimed wood planks we were disappointed to discover they could not be safely used in our climate (the tropics of South Florida), according to several local installers with whom we consulted. When we move North, we will call on Antique Beams and Boards for their beautiful floors. Thanks for the amazing service. We wish you the best!” Houzz Reviewer – Elizabeth

hand hewn hollowed beams
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: kitchen and den
Would you recommend us to a friend?: yes

I came across Matt on the Internet and over the course of several communications determined they were a solid vendor for the product I was seeking. Matt and his crew were very attentive to my request and routinely would respond when I had a question during the process. Very pleased with the final product. I found them to be people of their word in my dealings.

clean Rustic white oak
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: New Jersey
Would you recommend us to a friend?: Yes

Matt was a pleasure to work with. This project involved covering an existing Paralam beam with (3) boards of clean - rustic white oak to give the impression of one large beam. The mitered cuts were perfect and the beam looks fantastic and is always admired by guests that visit our home. Thank you Matt!!

Reclaimed Barnwood
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: Rockwall Texas
Would you recommend us to a friend?: Yes

My wife and I removed a built in hutch in our breakfast nook and after making several calls to have the drywall repaired we realized it would be cheaper to install some rustic relclaimed Barnwood. There is a lot of different ways to cover a wall but nothing compares to a real Barnwood wall! Have you heard the saying “if these walls could talk” think of what your walls could say if you have a beautiful Barnwood accent wall! Great product and great people.

Hand Hewn Beams & Lumber
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: Clinton Louisiana
Would you recommend us to a friend?: Yes

We built a custom Log Home in Clinton La. which included lots of reclaimed lumber throughout. When looking for Hand Hewn Beams and Stair Lumber for the home I ran across Antique Board and Beam on the Internet. The person answering my call was Matthew. Matthew helped me select the Hand Hewn Beams needed for support beams as well as door casings, shower beams,and two each mantles. In addition Matthew also provided the stair landings, stair risers, and hand rail materials. Matthew did not know me nor did I know him. From the beginning of the conversation I knew that Matthew was a Man of Integrity and someone that can be trusted. Our Lumber order was sizable and required deposits and trucking to be set up in advance of the lumber being prepared. All deliveries were met as promised and the quality of the materials received were excellent.It was truly a Blessing to find Antique Board and Beam to furnish the materials needed to build our Dream Home. I believe it was more of a Blessing to find a Man of Integrity to do business with. Thank You Matt!

We had recently purchased a log home in Fincastle Va.and were not happy with our present mantle on our rustic fireplace.We were fortunate to find Antique Beams & Boards,and spoke with Jaime who gave us ideas.I sent a picture of our fireplace and asked for suggestions not knowing what type and size mantle would look great on it.He worked with us all the way through,and explained the process he uses to prepare the beam. The pricing was reasonabe enough and the finished product was fantastic.We highly recommend Antique Beams & Boards for anyone who is looking for an authentic rustic beam look for their fireplace, and now we have a beautiful hand hewn antique barn beam mantle.

Barn beam
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: Ohio
Would you recommend us to a friend?: Yes

We were remodeling our living room and many hours of watching HGTV inspired me to use a barn beam for our fireplace mantle. Our brother in law put us in touch with Antique Beams and Boards and they created a beautiful mantle for us - rustic enough for me, clean lined enough for my husband. We are very pleased with how it turned out, and would recommend anyone looking for their own "NW Ohio Fixer Upper" to contact Jamie.

Barn Siding
Location of Reclaimed Wood Used: Accent wall in living room
Would you recommend us to a friend?: YES

I contacted Jaime at AB&B when I found him on a google search. I didn't really know what to expect since I have never done a project like this. He was the first company I reached out to because he had such a variety of photos on his website that seemed like the look I was going for. Jaime helped me all the way through and the pricing was reasonable enough to justify having it sent in versus looking for it locally. I would recommend AB&B to anyone with a project involving reclaimed wood. They knocked it out of the park for me.
