     There is a salvage dealer in our area that we found in the newspaper. He sells lumber, roofing material, and other supplies and components that have been fire or water damaged. One O-B told me bought salvaged lumber that was damaged in a transport crash and fire. Some of the edges of the lumber were singed, but he paid less than 20 cents on the dollar.

     Owner-builder Kevin W. said: “I built a house for a relative with salvage wood from semi wrecks, 2x12’s, plywood, etc. A lumberyard caught on fire, and a local salvage dealer handled the sale. We heard about him by word of mouth. We did a $230,000 house for $80,000. We also used furnaces and hot water heaters that were water damaged.”

     You can use salvage materials if you self-finance. Even if you must undergo bank inspections the risk of hang-up over recycled material is small, O-B’s tell me. Municipal building inspectors have discretion under the new code to inspect and approve used materials for new construction.

     O-B Phil S. has used salvage materials: “Remodeling contractors sell the stuff or there are salvage yards. Salvage tile, bricks, windows, (but don’t skimp on energy savings, – very important in a window) doors, lumber, old beams, perimeter fence stone (broken concrete), light fixtures, block for fence wall or basement wall, make fireplaces out of salvage brick. Salvage cabinets. Boneyard countertop. Some barn wood floor from falling-down barns. Plank floors. If over an inch thick, you can eliminate some OSB boards in the floor.”
