Recycling our past for our future
Welcome to Woolloongabba Demolitions where we have been demolishing houses and recycling building products since 1964. We have one of Brisbane's largest range original colonial materials and building products.
Nearly all of our second hand building materials are sourced from houses we demolish. We demolish houses mostly by hand. Our skilled crew take great care so we can use almost every piece of the house.
We salvage wall linings, bearers, joists, external cladding, kitchen items, bathroom items, doors, windows, fireplaces, light fittings, roofing materials, pipes, wrought iron and various timbers. If it can be salvaged, it is. All materials are brought to 698 Beuadesert rd Rocklea and sorted for easy viewing and selection by our customers. (about to get easier with our renovation)
All recycled timbers are de-nailed for convenience and safety. Our recycled house parts and second timber are priced at extremely competitive prices.
The quality and strength of recycled timber obtained from demolition sites is superior to new timbers. Environmentally and financially, recycled timbers remain the best option.
Whether you are building a new home or restoring a Queenslander, we will have something to suit. Increasingly our recycled timbers are being used by woodworkers who are seeking timber with character, timber which is cheaper and straighter than new. Many old timbers are being used for furniture construction.
Doors, doors doors ... we have hundreds of pre-loved doors in virtually every configuration and style imaginable. Second hand doors aluminum and timber for Queenslanders.
Many types of timber sourced from demolished Queenslanders and other sources.
Kitchens and Bathrooms
Brighten up your kitchen and bathroom with quality recycled products.
Our range includes leadlight windows, single and double pane double hung sash windows, triple and quadruple double hung sash windows, various colonial windows, casement windows and above door hi-lights. Occasionally we have complete bay windows too.
Recycled Goods and Oddities
Other than doors, windows, kitchens, bathrooms and timber you are likely to find just about anything else under the broad categories of second hand building materials and brica-brac and collectibles.
Second Hand Glass
Decorative glass is one of the most attractive features of old (and new) Queenslanders and the most sought after. We stock coloured textured glass, frosted glass and etched glass, most of which is recovered from Queenslanders.
