If you are looking to source reclaimed building materials rather than buy new, you may be wondering not only where you can find them but where they can be found at the lowest prices.
Often the best place to find reclaimed building materials is direct from a demolition site. This is where an old building is being dismantled to make way for a new development project. These can be happening all over the country at any given time and those involved in these projects will be happy to sell you materials you can make use of if there are no other buyers.
The problem with this approach is finding the right kinds of materials in the right place at the right time. You may be looking for a specific type of building material from a certain era such as brick or stone. You may even be working on an older building where the aim is to preserve its period features.
In this case a reclamation yard or other specialist salvage centre will be the best option. While purchasing your reclaimed materials will be more expensive than buying direct, you will also have a far wider choice of reclaimed materials to choose from.
