Recyclable Materials for your home

Many architects, builders and designers know that using salvaged materials for a new-home project is one of the most sustainable building practices available. Whether it's old brick, old slate and tile roofing, wood structures and siding, or windows and doors, saving these materials from our landfills lets us all live a little more lightly on the land.
