Creative new uses for salvaged antiques is our specialty. We love repurposing salvaged doors into front bars, transforming church altars into bathroom vanities and kitchen islands, we've even repurposed beveled glass windows into headboards.

Sustainable Business Practices
Materials Unlimited of Ypsilanti, a Waste Knot member since 1998, truly knows the "art" of recycling. Since 1974, Materials Unlimited has been salvaging architecturally significant items that would normally go to landfills. This includes doors, hardware, woodwork, lighting fixtures, and details. They restore and refinish these salvaged materials, making them more desirable for reuse. With a UL-certification, Materials Unlimited is licensed to fix and rewire old lighting that may have otherwise been thrown away. Recycling continues into their operations by reusing shredded paper and Styrofoam for packing material and purchasing recycled content products. In addition, Materials Unlimited helps perpetuate community recycling by sending business to Recycle Ann Arbor when they cannot use an item.
