Denver Metro Restore!
Throughout our Arizona remodeling work we have become fans of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore both for donations of items we have replaced and for finding materials that have been donated by others.
We have purchased light fixtures, interior doors, sinks, a tub, granite vanity top, hinges, trim, electrical supplies, and that is just what I remember! The way to use Restore is to go often and spend some time looking at what is available so that when a need arises you know what you are likely to find if you need something. I had a list of needs and would stop by once a week or so during the remodeling to see what was available.
When they have a big donation , it can be gone in a day as many area contractors also seem to stop by regularly. Our best “find” was probably 100 or more linear feet of oak door casing, which was used for baseboards in our son’s condo. He decided to stain it mahogany to contrast with the rustic pine laminate floors. Wow, love the look!
