A terrific place to buy materials for a remodel or house addition is the Habitat for Humanity ReStores. Not only will you save about 50% off home improvement store prices, you will help a respected and life-changing non-profit organization. Habitat for Humanity accepts donations of building materials from a variety of sources. They operate about 400 ReStores throughout the country. They sell recycled or barely-used fixtures and building materials of all kinds. You can find everything from partial bundles of insulation to acrylic skylights, to drywall, to pre-hung doors, and more. You can find the closest ReStore to your location by visiting the Habitat for Humanity website at www.habitat.org.
