WNY's Largest Supplier of Reclaimed and Surplus Building Material

Western New York’s Biggest Source of Reclaimed Building Materials

Just to clarify, because there is confusion in our marketplace, we’re not Buffalo ReUse, we’re ReUse Action. We sell all kinds of reclaimed building materials, including foam insulation board – factory seconds, used/reclaimed and surplus. We also sell lots of reclaimed wood of all types – barn wood, beams, joists, flooring and siding, as well as odds and ends of reclaimed wood from trim, flooring and so on. We’re the premier reuse store in Buffalo, serving Western New York and nearby areas.

I’ve built a business on what our culture and community relegates as useless and unwanted.
