Finding Replacement Parts

The City of Independence Oregon - Official Website

One of the hardest parts of any restoration project is finding appropriate replacement parts.  Whether it's siding, doorknobs, windows, or brick, they just don't make them like they used to.  Here are some resources for finding and reusing historic building materials.  The State Historic Preservation Office maintains a list of suppliers for restoration projects.  Additionally, the Historic Preservation Commission has compiled a partial list of deconstruction contractors and historic material sources from the area.  The list is attached at the bottom of this page along with links to several material suppliers.
