What is your definition of "Demolition" when doing a small remodel. I am removing a LBP trim around one side of a bedroom door. The trim only. If I re-use the trim do I have to follow the LBP and be a Certified Renavotor? Or if I pitch the LBP trim and use new in its place, does this alter anything?
