What We Do
Looking to Buy?
We reclaim, you save.
Building or upgrading a property? Before you pay top dollar for brand-new materials shop with us! You’ll find attractive prices on hundreds of reclaimed building materials, fixtures, appliances, cabinets, and landscaping—all high quality, and some unique or hard to find.
Find what you need.
To see what’s available, browse our inventory online or visit our Before U Demo Reclaim Warehouse in Villa Park. All Warehouse items are available for immediate purchase/pickup—no disassembly or removal required.
Sales that save you even more.
Our Pre-Demolition Sales or By-Appointment-Only Sales are held onsite at a soon-to-be-demolished or renovated property. Because you’re buying at the source and we have not yet incurred the cost of extracting, transporting and storing the property’s reusable materials, your price is as low as it gets!

Tips for a Successful Pre-Demolition Sale Buying Experience
Arrive early – Our Sales are very popular and we allow entry to the site on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to be sure you get the item(s) on your shopping list, consider arriving 30-60 min before the official start time.
Select “big ticket” items are often sold via an auction format. Auctions, run by a professional auctioneer from Cronin Auction Services, are typically scheduled around the start of the Sale– another reason to arrive early.
Come prepared – Pre-Demolition Sale homes frequently do not have electricity or gas service available, therefore:
- Dress appropriately—the site can be cool in the winter or warm in the summer
- Bring a flashlight
- Bring tools (manual or cordless) and gloves—most items require disassembly/removal
- Prepare for transport—know how you’re going to get your purchased materials from the Sale to your location
- For larger items that require more significant disassembly, you can arrange to return within the next week for removal and transport
