NYC Demolition a Wellspring of Architectural Salvage

NYC Demolition a Wellspring of Architectural Salvage

A New York City demolition project can yield a trove of architectural features, artifacts, fixtures, and ornaments that can be reclaimed for reuse. With architects, designers, and homeowners increasingly on the hunt for treasures from bygone eras, many demolition contractors, including R. Baker & Son, are salvaging items ranging from doors, hardware, mantels, and vintage bathtubs to large stained glass windows, complete staircases, and entire paneled rooms. Items considered junk in years past are now recognized for their beauty and superior quality and given new life as art, restored and reused in new construction or remodeling projects, and integrated into design elements, such as converting window frames into mirrors or a column into a table base. Architectural salvage keeps these materials of value out of landfills, as well.

There are numerous architectural salvage outlets in New York City and surrounding suburbs in New Jersey and Connecticut, and most offer a variety of related services including restoration, retrofit, installation, and reproduction. Some are small storefronts, while others occupy large, multi-story buildings with thousands of objects on display, drawing serious buyers and window shoppers alike.

R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services has long been the New York area’s preferred demolition contractor when it comes to landmarks, historic sites and treasured artifacts, and we have recovered salvageable assets from countless complete demolition, selective demolition, interior demolition, and relocation projects over the years.
