Stardust Cheap Remodel

It's the Goodwill so-to-speak of Lowe's or Home Depot. Stardust Building Supplies is actually a non-profit, that will come into your home, free of charge, and tear out your kitchen, for example, for somebody else to reuse it in their remodel home project. They've got isles of toilets, chandalier's, cabinets, doors, windows, appliances, etc, anything you could imagine to redo your home, at 50-80% below retail prices. If you know how to repurpose an item, or refurbish to look like new, this is your place! For your home improvement projects, our gently-used building materials, appliances and furniture are priced at 50 to 80 percent below retail cost. Our inventory is donated by individuals and businesses, so we can keep prices low while diverting usable items from the waste stream. Your purchases help to support reuse services and programs as well as provide essential resources to low-income families and individuals.
