Deconstruction Examples


The ReBuilding Center's DeConstruction Services hand dismantles buildings in the reverse order of the way they were built. They remove everything from the inside of the structure and then start with the roof and work down to the floorboards, removing every nail by hand. They are able to salvage up to 85 percent of a building's components for reuse!
