It is so much fun digging through all the treasures to find the perfect window or the perfect door. We found great windows at ReNew for our new sugarhouse.

ReNew is an essential resource-- I find things I need, as well as inspiration for future projects. Erich and his staff always have good advice and are a pleasure to deal with. I'll be back many, many times!

We purchased lumber for my son's tree fort at Renew Building Materials & Salvage and are thrilled with the materials, service, and price. Without recycled materials, I could not have afforded to have the fort built. It was an exciting experience to bring my 8 year old along and have him help to choose the lumber with us. It was much more exciting field trip than shopping at a conventional building supply store. The variety of fixtures, windows, and other recycled materials was fascinating to young and old alike. And the service was extraordinary!! Keep up the good work Renew!

First of all, I believe there should be stores like ReNew in every town, because it just makes sense. Construction and demolition waste makes up a substantial portion of the waste stream, and a waste it is when it can be re-used! Second, stuff there is cheap. That matters. Especially when it's good stuff that's cheap. Third, the staff speak the language of contractors and building professionals, not canned Home Depot customer service. It's dirty, crowded, hard to find things (there are no big overhead aisle signs - and only a suggestion of aisles in the first place). This can be a charm and it can be a turn-off. You might have to ask for help (and the help is knowledgeable). In general I prefer my retail to be self-service and easy and I want to invest as little as possible in it (it's the stuff I want, not the experience). You won't get that with ReNew.

Entering Renew is like discovering a warehouse full of treasures. I am committed to buying salvaged materials when I can, but I really enjoy checking out the stock. All the pieces have a story and Renew is a great stop to get inspired for all kinds of projects, not just building and restoration. Visiting renew is a must for artisans, craftspeople, DYI'ers, and designers.

I always go to renew first whenever I need anything from nut and bolts to appliances and cabinets. Their prices are great, and Erich is really knowledgeable and helpful. I am still happy with the gas stove I bought several years ago for $100, and am thrilled with the extra kitchen cabinets i just got that matched my current cabinets for a fraction of the price.

I needed to build a cabin in a short period of time. Renew had the framing lumber, plywood, fiberglass insulation, rigid foam board, tile, cabinets, windows, doors, flooring, and bath fixtures. m My total cost was very low because of their affordable prices, and I felt much better knowing that no trees needed to be cut down to make it all come together.
