Deconstruction, an increasingly popular alternative to demolition, is the systematic dismantling of residential buildings. Deconstruction is a proven, environmentally responsible technique for removing unwanted structures. It takes time to dismantle structures while preserving reusable materials. That's why deconstruction ususally costs more than outright demolition. Some of those extra costs can be recovered from selling the salvaged materials. Alternatively, owners may choose to donate the materials and realize a generous tax deduction.


Why Choose Deconstruction Over Demolition?

  • Disassemble and recycle home building materials for reuse or donation
  • Environmentally friendly – sends less debris to the landfills
  • Tax advantages for the property owner
