Do You Reuse?
We’ve all heard of reduce, reuse, recycle, but when doing demolition for a remodel, the methods must be modified if there is going to be a focus on reusing materials in the future. In the article linked below Tom O’Brien shows how to remove trim without damaging it.
As an added bonus, the careful techniques outlined in the article reduce the chance of damage to the wall, which will save you time, money and frustration.
