Making Old New Again
EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO
In 2002 Jay Petre won a contract to tear down some old structures in Greenbrier County, not knowing what to do with all the old lumber when the job was completed, Jay was asked if he wanted to sell it. It was then that he realized there was an emerging market for old wood. Jay took this idea and created Renick Millworks in Pocahontas County. Many folks in the 1980's and early 90's would burn old structures and with it thousands of dollars of rare vintage lumber, with a large percentage coming from the once virgin forests of West Virginia. Now Renick Millworks will tear down those structures and re-purpose the timber into beautiful hardwood flooring for private homes and businesses. The company is literally preserving history and also helping the environment by re-purposing the rich character and feel of reclaimed timber.
