Salvaged & Recycled Materials in a Custom Home: What You Must Know

Using salvaged building materials in your new custom home can be a charming way to blend modern conveniences with rustic charm.

The salvaged elements can add character and have the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly versus buying new materials for every project.

That said, there are some precautions you should take before using too many salvaged materials in your home. It’s important to put safety first and never use a salvaged material if the integrity of it is compromised or it’s too old. Also, you’ll need to keep the resale of your home in mind. While you may love a quirky reclaimed feature, will the next owner?

Elite Custom Builders put together a simple guide to using recycled and reclaimed materials in your new custom home, to make it easier for you to decide when to use them and when to pass.

Room to Grow: Remodeling Your Current Business Location vs. Moving

Business owners measure the success of their business in different ways — for some, hitting revenue goals is the marker of success.

For others, it’s the impact of their business in the community. Some define their success by the happiness and productivity of their staff.

Most business owners have multiple measures of success, like those above. But one measure of success we frequently get to celebrate with business owners is physical growth. Whether it’s the decision to open a second location, increase the size of the existing space or move the business to a bigger location, growth is exciting.

We take pride in celebrating these business milestones with our clients. It’s our job to work with our clients to help them set a clear plan for the physical expansion of their business. Read on to learn how to assess your needs and what your options are.
