The problem with waste

Sadly, the construction industry is responsible for producing one of the highest levels of waste. That is why more people are trying to build new homes that are environmentally friendly by using sustainable substances. However, we still need to look at the bigger picture. This way, we can lower the amount of waste projects are producing from the beginning.

Refuse from tearing down old buildings counts for more than 90% of the waste. Prior to deciding on the demolition, think about what you can use again. Read on for some ideas.

Stable structures

One thing you can try is to retain stable structures. Carry out an extensive examination of these buildings. Then decide whether you can use any part of them. There may be stable walls and foundations to save. If luck is on your side, you can reuse doorways, arches, and entire rooms. There may even be some features to retain like fire places.

Don’t throw everything away

If possible, you should also rescue reusable substances. Soft tear downs can remove recyclable materials safely. This includes tile, steel, fixtures, wood, stone, and glass. You can repurpose some of them in the new building. Or, if you don’t want to do this you can send them for recycling. Both options are better than simply wasting all of these resources.
