Reclaimed material

Reclaimed material

The material that has been previously used in a building or project and is then reused in another project. The material might be altered, resized, refinished, or adapted, but is not reprocessed in any way and remains in its original form. This can include reclaimed lumber, flooring, tiles, beams, and other materials that are salvaged from a building under demolition or deconstruction and used in the construction of a new building.
