Stick to a Budget with Used Building Materials
Renovations projects can cost a fortune if you’re not careful. Buying materials, fixtures, lighting, doors, windows, cabinets, and anything else you can from the ReStore will help you save on brand-name home improvement necessities. And, if the ReStore doesn’t have what you’re looking for, check out The ReUse People of America. Their store is located right beside ReStore Oakland! They carry a variety of used building materials, including lumber and other essentials.

Benefits of Buying Used Building Materials
Beyond the cost savings that come with buying used building materials, you are supporting environmental sustainability. Every tool or piece of hardware you purchase is diverted from a landfill. Additionally, all proceeds from your purchase support our nonprofit, Habitat for Humanity, which builds affordable homes for low and middle income families in the Bay Area.
