Salvage Yard- Used Building Material- Reviews- San Diego

Reclaimed Wood From Old Fort

First I went to Architectural Salvage on Kettner Blvd- What a great place! If you are looking for hardware, doors, stained glass, they have tons in stock! What I loved- the tin sinks, which were fabulous! Unfortunately didn’t need them now and maybe some time in the far future. They have bathtubs, sinks, newels, grates, locks, lighting and lots more of great stuff. Pricing is the same if not better than your local home improvement store. I didn’t have my camera with me, so sorry no pics!

My favorite is Builders Surplus Building Materials in Leucadia, Encinitas. They have been around for 16 years, 2 years in this location. The focus is on doors, windows and ironwork, but they have hardware, granite, ornamental tile and  reclaimed wood and whatever else is available. My camera’s batteries died so can only show a few pics.

If you go, be sure to wander into the back forty, where all the granite, wood, posts, newels and stuff are stored! They salvage products, get stock overruns and take on used building materials on consignment.

    Hi, I work with a Mens shelter in Tijuana and looking to build an Trough Urinal. My thought is to use some used large diameter pvc pipe cut in half 10-12 in. x 8′ long with supports built below. Do you carry this, or know of someone who does?

    For those who are interested. I need to get rid of 7 brand new high quality Milgard sliding glass patio doors asap. They are sitting on the jobsite and are still in their packaging. They are big doors measuring 72″ x 96″ and are dual paned with UV glass. They include everything including screens, frames, and tracks.

    There are also 7 new Milgard sliding windows of which 4 of them measure 48″ x 66″, 2 measure 24″ x 36″, and one window is a Awning Matelux glass measuring 48″ x 18″.

    Everyting is sitting where they were delivered at the jobsite in Laguna Niguel, CA 92677. Construction stopped on this site about 1 1/2 years ago and these Milgards are just sitting there. Thery’re high quality windows as this was going to be a multi-million dollor total reconstruction. I guess the original property owner dreamed bigger the he could afford. I just bought the property and am going to finish the project except changes have been made and these windows will no longer fit the plan.

    They all have to go ASAP cause they are in the way. Make an offer. First come, first served

    I can email some pics and a copy of the original invoice or better yet, we can make arrangements to meet at the jobsite. Thanks – Jimmy 949-303-0239
