What Our Customers are Saying
Cindy, Saugerties, NY
In 2012, we had Excelsior Wood Products install flooring in our waterfront home. We chose the Reclaimed Wood, Antique Pine. It was installed throughout the entire first floor, except the Master Bath. This type of flooring complimented the renovation of the existing structure which was built in 1940. With its wide planks, distressed finish and deep rich brown hues, the antique pine flooring has withstood our lifestyle by the water, our two Labs and family gatherings with grandchildren. We loved the final result with this flooring so much that we decided to have Excelsior make our staircase and custom build our kitchen/dining (huge) table. The staircase is beautiful with thick, solid treads. Ron custom made our table with Coney Island Boardwalk. The design and size is amazing. We highly recommend Excelsior Wood Products. The owners and staff have great customer service and really take the time for your personal needs and questions.
"We purchased the most amazing reclaimed barn wood floors for our new addition that is really the focal point for the room. The floors have a unique character that makes the large space both beautiful and warm. We were very pleased to work with Excelsior on this project, as they were very professional and extremely creative with the design. The delivery was exactly on the date and time as promised. We plan to work with Excelsior again for our next project - and hope it will be more than a floor."
Frank L Boger Park Manager Mills-Norrie State Park
Here at Mills-Norrie State Park, we have a very busy campground with over forty-five sites and ten cabins. We serve a diverse clientele from a large number of geographic locations ranging from very rural areas to New York City. We recently had the good fortune to obtain the kiln dried fire logs which we sell to our campers for campfires. Our campers absolutely love them! They are clean, easy to light, and a completely "green" product. They are also insect and disease free which with the recent concerns about the Emerald Ash Borer, gives us confidence that no damage or disease is being spread in our forests. We have also used these fire logs in our woodstoves and fireplaces and found them to be very efficient, clean burning with a minimal amount of ash. Finally, it should not be understated how friendly, courteous, and professional all the folks at Excelsior Wood Products have been to us. A win situation all the way!

We enlisted Excelsior to make a coffee table for us out of Coney Island boardwalk wood. Working with them was an absolute pleasure. Christina was our go-to person and walked us through the process. She was comfortable taking our suggestions and including them in the design of the product. The table is absolutely gorgeous . . . just what we had envisioned it would be. Chris, the woodworker assigned to our project, was fabulous to work with. He is a true craftsman, so much so that we were delighted to have him sign our table. The Excelsior team really know what they are doing and do it so very well!
Hi Ron. Just wanted to let you know that the floors are nothing less than AMAZING!!!!! We are so happy. I can't stop looking at them. Thank you so much for all your attention to detail. The colors are so rich. Thanks again
Rob Saffer, Woodstock, NY
We built a LEED-certified home and used Excelsior's reclaimed heart pine in many ways: flooring, benches, and posts. Ron sourced and obtained amazingly gorgeous beams from a factory in Ohio that were planed into gorgeous, wide plank flooring. I built the house along with a lead carpenter who was initially skeptical about working with such long, wide reclaimed wood. He was also skeptical that the finish would work as promised. By the end of the installation, our carpenter was a convert. He said, "This was the easiest, best floor to install. And, I can't believe a single coat of VOC free flooring oil could be so easy to use yet so beautiful." A year later, the floor looks great. Even more, it feels great on our feet.
It was my pleasure to work with Ron Sauer and his team at Excelsior! They were a delight to work with to customize our new construction home built in 2011, in Lake Hill, NY. Ron and his team fabricated custom trim and moldings for the entire house, they also installed reclaimed wide width red oak floors with beautiful finish throughout, made custom reclaimed beam mantels for our fireplaces, installed reclaimed wood ceilings in two bedrooms as well as beam wraps. They also installed reclaimed Ipe from the Coney Island Boardwalk on our large wrap around porches and screen room. This was stunning and gave our home a piece of history and made the home feel it had been there forever, rather than the typical new construction feel. However our favorite work Ron did was design a live edge island top for our kitchen. It was a piece of art and the centerpiece of our kitchen! We received countless complements on the work they did. The Excelsior team was prompt, materials were fabricated with care, delivered on time, installed beautifully! I would highly recommend Excelsior to anyone looking for beautiful craftsmanship, excellent service and a unique product. Excelsior delivers.
