In today’s economy, where it’s often easier to buy new and throw away items that need repairs, it’s refreshing to know that places like Dayton Reclamation and Restoration (Dayton R+R) exist. Jeff Wysong, a master carpenter who’s been working on historical restoration in the Dayton region for over 40 years, has announced that he will again be in the retail business. This Sat, Nov 23rd at 8:30am at 280 North Findlay Street in Dayton the architectural reclamation store will open with a stock of materials ranging from foundation stones to lumber, doors, windows, trims and vintage hardware. They will also have barn beams, siding and specialty items of interest!
With over 40 years of experience, Jeff and his team have reclaimed materials from over 300 houses,barns and schools.We have also restored and preserved many homes throughout Dayton’s historic districts since 1986.

When that is not possible,we believe in preserving the historic fabric and features that make those structures significant,and offering those items to you for the restoration of your home,and for your landscape and artistic needs as well! We believe in Dayton, it’s history past, present and future.
Marketing Manager Tyler Payne explains, “our approach is totally green. We will continue to harvest treasures from old buildings and we have a passion for deconstruction in a way that allows us to reuse quality building materials.”He shared that in the future they plan to hold educational symposiums for the public.
