deconstruction

salvaging reusable items

Deconstruction is the process of dismantling by hand 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 Choose Deconstruction?

  • Save Money | Tax deductions and reduction of trash hauling and disposal fees will reduce your overall project costs.
  • Save Our Environment | Reduce the environmental impact by removing reusable items instead of disposing them in our local landfills.
  • Help Our Community | By supplying the ReStore with quality building materials that can be resold to the public, you can help Habitat raise money to offer safe, decent, affordable housing solutions for hard-working families in need in the Fox Cities.
