Demo Done Right

July 28, 2017

You’ve decided to pull the trigger on your home remodel, but when the walls come down, there are a lot of good building materials that fall by the wayside. Don’t send the scraps to the junkyard – instead, plan ahead to have them reused or recycled. Not only will you help other in need of affordable building materials, but you can also claim your donation at tax time.

 

The materials that many of these companies take include:

  •  

  • Flooring

  • Cabinets

  • Plumbing fixtures and fittings

  • Trim and Doors

  • Door and Cabinet Hardware

  • Lighting Fixtures

  • Roofing and siding materials

  • Windows

  • Staircase pieces

 

 

All it takes is a quick call to one of these local companies and a chat with your general contractor to arrange a time for these items to be picked up or delivered. An added bonus is that if any of the materials are of a certain value, they can be consigned with any commission going right back into your pocket.

 

So before the demo begins, think of others and second life those materials might have! For more inspiration - check out our newest pinboard, SALVAGE| RECLAIM
