Join Building Value on July 16th, 2014 as they celebrate their 10th anniversary of building the value for a better world.
Building Value was founded in 2004 by Easter Seals TriState. We salvage reusable building materials destined for the landfill and resell them to the public.
True Re-use – Greener than Recycling
Recycling breaks down materials to make them into something new. Large amounts of energy are required, and the value of the original items is lost.
At Building Value, materials in good condition are reused in their original form for their original purpose. This process:
preserves architectural treasures, provides quality materials at a bargain, gives donors a tax deduction/LEED credits, creates jobs
How it Works
Building Value operates both a retail re-use outlet open to the public and professional deconstruction services (manual removal of materials before a building is remodeled, demolished or rebuilt). Salvaged materials are brought to our store by the deconstruction team.
In addition, homeowners, remodelers, builders, businesses, property owners and others donate new, gently used and antique building materials to the store.
Salvaged materials are sold at a deep discount to homeowners, landlords and developers. Proceeds support Building Value, Building Ability operations and our parent Easter Seals TriState and the process begins again.
