ReHouse sells reclaimed home parts from properties that are being demolished or renovated. The ReHouse staff salvages the materials by hand to preserve the quality and value allowing for the parts to be reused. By doing so, ReHouse gains building materials from landfills, creating both jobs and value out of what was once considered waste.
"The city of Rochester is a great place to have a business. All dealings I have had with the city have been nothing but positive," says ReHouse co-owner Sally Kamprah, "We at ReHouse are so happy and excited to have the opportunity to relocate our company with in Rochester."
Kamprath opened the business with Kathy Burdick after seeing much waste in the demolition process and many buildings being torn down without valued items.
$260,000 was invested in the new site and purchase of the building. The city of Rochester also assisted with an additional $8,000.
ReHouse is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Wednesday; from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m on Saturday.
