Aging New Wood to Create a
Weathered and Reclaimed Look
CdA Wood’s patent process accelerates the natural aging of wood, achieving the beauty and character that would take Mother Nature decades to accomplish. CdA Wood reached this achievement by exposing the raw lumber to a specific combination of sun, soil, water and wind. The wood responds with a look that exposes its natural colors and a feel that is indistinguishable from reclaimed wood. This proprietary procedure cannot be found anywhere else on the market today.
Furthermore, CdA Wood’s breakthrough process incorporates a germicidal technology that destroys all contaminates in the wood. As a result, CdA Wood’s product represents the safest alternative to reclaimed wood, because there is no risk of being exposed to off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) associated with lead paint or numerous other stains and treatments.
Modernizing the Reclaimed Wood Industry
Beyond the financial uncertainty and safety concerns, reclaimed wood can be difficult to incorporate into new and existing construction. Uniformity in size and color might be impossible to source in sufficient quantities, and many pieces have metal incursions that need to be removed, resulting in further costs. Xcelerated avoids all of these problems. It provides a safe, economical and practical solution to meet the demands of buyers looking to incorporate the traditional character and beauty of natural wood into their everyday spaces. Other companies have attempted to duplicate the ‘reclaimed’ look by using paints and stains, but these methods increase the costs of production, require yearly maintenance and merely mimic a façade without providing its authenticity.

Some of the affinity for reclaimed wood comes from its scarcity, but once that romanticized notion fades away, the dollars and cents just don’t add up. Numerous factors make the economics to produce reclaimed wood difficult to determine, leading to substantial budget overages. What’s more, in most cases, the insignificant recovery of exploitable reclaimed wood from the raw material does not justify the cost of such a disappointing result.
