In painstaking handwork, Mr. and Mrs. Prenzel from the company "Historische Baustoffe Prenzel" together with their team remove old buildings. Of the salvaged building materials, almost 60% can be reused. Whether historic plain tiles, windows, beams, doors or clinker bricks - they give all these building materials a second life through salvage and resale. It is important to Prenzels that builders as well as architects should generally consider recycling more. Only in this way can new buildings be designed more ecologically in the future.
