older look or an older style, don't forget your local architectural
salvage companies. These companies are popping up all over the place and
as demand gets stronger, you will start to see more and more of these
For those of you who don't know what an architectural salvage company is, it's a company that salvages building materials. Some of these companies specialize in particular products like bathtubs and bathroom fixtures, while others actually contain lumber and larger bulkier building materials.
If you're looking for a particular product, and you can't seem to find it, but you remember someone having it in their home, when you were much younger, I would suggest that you check out one of these architectural salvage companies. They might have what you're looking for and if they don't, maybe they know someone who does.
Some of these companies carry extensive lines of almost anything that you could ever have thought of. If you were ever to walk into one of the larger architectural salvage companies company you would see what I'm talking about.
It's almost like an old-fashioned builders dream come true. There called architectural salvage companies, because there seems to be a growing need for these products, as architects start to demand certain styles and specific products, that they have seen personally inside of a particular salvage yard.
