Re: Clearance / Discount materials for renovation?
If you do talk to contractors about picking up waste materials, it's a good idea to get permission every time, from every jobsite, at least until they trust you. There is a lot of theft from jobsites these days and you don't want to get on their bad sides.
What appears to be waste may not be. You don't want to be picking up something that they are planning on saving.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
