Salvage Dawgs stars Robert Kulp and Mike Whiteside, co-owners of a top architectural salvage business called Black Dog Salvage. During the series, Robert and Mike secure remarkable vintage pieces of America’s past from soon-to-be demolished homes. The guys then sell these valuable pieces -- everything from doors, windows, mantles and more -- to a wide range of clients, including construction workers and high-end interior designers who use them to restore other historical buildings or add character to newer structures.
