If you are undertaking minor of major home improvements and are working on a budget then you will probably be very interested in reclaimed building materials. Items if this kind are often cheaper than their modern counterparts and many proponents would argue that they are superior in quality and style too. With that in mind here is an introduction to reclaimed building materials:

Reclaimed building materials come in a wide variety of forms. From red bricks to wooden roofing trusses and floorboards, pretty much everything you will find integrated into a housing construction can be recycled and put to use elsewhere. In many older properties a lot of these items have increased in desirability as modern materials are not as aesthetically pleasing, well made or affordable.

As the old saying goes, ‘they don’t make them like they used to’. Ask any tradesmen and they will probably tell you that things like the original floorboards in Edwardian homes are unrivalled by modern alternatives. After all in certain buildings these original features are protected by listed building status which is testament to their quality and importance as part of our heritage. Consequently there is a market for items which are taken from certain properties if they are being knocked down or gutted for a major refurbishment.

Reclaimed building materials in the form of structural beams or studded partitions can be rescued. Other wooden items include timber flooring. However things like tiles and even windows can be salvaged and sold. Furniture is also popular as many older items were beautifully handcrafted by artisan carpenters and boast considerable style, not to mention durability. Anything from oak dining room tables to bespoke chests of draws can be acquired. Many reclaimed building materials are used for gardens and landscaping projects including masonry such as Yorkstone.

Where can I get hold of the very best reclaimed building materials?
