Topic tags/keywords: reclaimed lumber recycling millwork used lumber lumber planning remodeling restoring refurbishing

There are companies that resell old windows, doors, fireplace mantels, fixtures, bathtubs, old stoves and heaters, reclaimed wood and anything else you replace. Whenever you remodel or renovate you may be able to sell what you no longer need to them or at least get them to take it off your hands.

Some millwork companies will also buy reclaimed lumber or re-mill it into whatever you want. Old buildings, bridges, and other structures were built with heart woods that are in high demand because they are stronger, hard (or even impossible) to buy new, and have more beautiful grains.

I commend you for asking what to do with the windows. Many are not aware of the demand and benefits to the environment of recycling windows and anything else useful and especially reclaiming old lumber. It is likely that you can find someone who will pay more for what you can salvage than it costs to have a building torn down.

I hope more people will sell what they remove or find another purpose. The huge beams in old barns, houses and bridges can be turned into so many things. I read more about that in Good Millwork’s blog on how they mill what they call “customer supplied lumber” into whatever that person can use.

Don’t ever buy a double seal glass window most of the time they are removed because the seal leaks and then they sweat between the the two glass.

Recycling furniture is great, I will reupholster the furniture. Bedding is not on my list to buy recycled.

While we’re on this subject, does anyone here know of any reclamation yards in the Pa.USA area that would handle countertop material. The only ones I found so far are Butcher top. I am looking for solid surface (Corian or other similar).

I want to share my experience with recycling. I found a picture in Pinterest for reused door and I found in granny’s house an old vintage door. I took it at home and my husband he scraped with sandpaper it and then we painted it in yellow. Simply, one of the best ideas! I am with two hands for reusing and recycling!

There are a lot of ways in which you can reuse old furniture and even old clothes.If you have old toys or electrical appliances that are in a good working condition then you could donate it to various charity organisations.

It is better to recycle things instead of destroying our nature. As a student i am also going to take a step to prevent our nature.
