How we salvage our materials
We are able to get our salvaged materials from different sources. When we hear of a building that is being gutted or torn down, our staff descend on the scene and evaluates what items can be salvaged.
We put a team together and carefully remove the items from their location and take them back to our warehouse so they can be prepared for sale. Other times, our salvage materials come from construction sites where there is an excessive amount of supplies and the project does not need all of the materials that have been ordered. Also, we remove and pick up salved materials from people within the community.
Our quality guarantee
We are passionate about salvaging building supplies to keep the environment cleaner along with selling the items back to the community at a discounted price. This process allows us to meet many needs around us.
We are able to build jobs, keep waste out of the landfills, and salvage unique supplies that can be re-used in other construction projects. Prior to selling these materials, we make sure that they are in good working condition and that they will last for years to come.
