When lumber is salvaged or reused for your remodel or other construction buildings, we can end up saving roughly 33 mature trees and 10 acres of pine trees.

Oftentimes, when a remodel is started, one of the big surprises encountered is the amount of debris and scrap accumulated each day. Big or small, a remodel requires different types of building materials including wood, metal, sheetrock, concrete, asphalt, bricks, cardboard, and hard plastics. Not only can you reuse much of these materials within your own remodel, but what you don't use, you can donate for reuse or recycle somewhere else.
