Deconstruction

Deconstruction is the art of salvaging reusable items from homes and businesses, reducing the disposal of materials into the landfill. It provides materials for renovation and other small scale construction projects to be sold at the Habitat ReStore.

Deconstruction is the process of hand dismantling in order to salvage usable portions of rooms or buildings, whether you’re planning a simple remodel or removing an entire property. These items are then made available to the public for purchase at the Habitat ReStore.

How Deconstructions Work at the Habitat ReStore

The property owner or their representative(s) contacts the Habitat ReStore. Once we establish that there is a product or material appropriate for salvage by the Habitat ReStore, a time is set for the Deconstruction manager to meet with the property owner representative(s) and do a walk-through of the site.

Once an agreement is made with the property representative(s) as to availability, materials and a timeline, the Deconstruction manager will schedule a volunteer crew to begin its work of deconstruction.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A MINIMUM 10 DAY PROCESSING PERIOD BEFORE PHYSICAL DECONSTRUCTION CAN BEGIN. Please call as soon as possible so your deconstruction can be completed in a safe and timely manner to best fit your needs.

Why chose Deconstruction?

  • Save Money | Tax deductions and reduction of trash hauling and disposal fees, will reduce your overall project costs.
