Q.   Where and how do you get your products?

Historic House Salvage diverts quality, reusable antique, vintage and modern building materials from the landfill. We accomplish this by salvaging architectural items and offering them for sale at our store. 

Our salvage crew works onsite at houses that are going to be demolished. They carefully remove reusable items such as doors, cabinets, and lighting fixtures. The salvaged items are then loaded on a truck and hauled to the store where we offer them for sale.

Q.   Will I save by purchasing salvaged items?

If you’re remodeling, sprucing up, or just maintaining your home or property, you can save a bundle here at Historic House Salvage on used building materials. You can buy a top of the line used door, cabinet or bathtub for less than the cost of a basic new unit at one of those super stores. Or, get a perfectly good basic unit far less than a new one.

Q.   What will I find at Historic House Salvage?

We have items that you just won’t find anywhere else. Do you own an historic home, or like a touch of history in your newer home? You can buy antique wood trim, door knobs, stained glass, and more at Historic House Salvage. You can also find a custom piece of a more recent vintage.

Q.   Alright, you have my attention--push me over the edge!

Shopping Historic House Salvage is good for the environment! Reusing building materials saves the resources and energy required to make new materials and reduces the waste flow to landfills. And, when you buy from us, you’re supporting a locally-owned business!

Q.   Do you guarantee your merchandise? What if I want to make a return?

All merchandise is sold “as is”. However, returns are accepted within 7 days for store credit only. Equipment is not guaranteed to be in safe operating condition; it is the responsibility of the buyer to have it inspected and repaired as required by a qualified professional.

Q.   I’m planning a remodel, any tips?

Know your measurements in advance. When you find the perfect door or cabinet, you don’t want to risk losing it to someone else while you go back home to make sure it will fit. Better yet, if you’re remodeling, check with the store before working out your plans. You may find a really great, unique piece that you just have to have, and you can then design your plans to accommodate it!
