Green Your Remodeling Project: Reclaimed Wood
Tip #1: Choose wood with history.
Reclaimed hardwood floors create a warm, natural look without contributing to deforestation. Find a recycled lumber dealer in your region to locate sustainable wood for your building project. You might visit local salvage yards or even broker your own deal at a nearby demolition site. Be wary, however, of wood that's been tinted with toxic lead paint.
Tip #2: Opt for efficient windows.
Tip #3: Spruce up your wall coverings.
Tip #4: Rethink your roof.
