Deconstruction Program Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in using our deconstruction service! Please read through the guidelines below to see if your project is a good fit with our service. For more inforation on the service in general, please click here.
Typically, we deconstruct full-sized kitchens. We also deconstruct items from houses that are scheduled to be torn down. We deconstruct additional rooms on a case-by-case basis.
All items must be in good condition
Appliances must be in good working order
Cabinet sets must be less than 20 years old
Cabinets must not be built in place and not be refaced nor repainted
The project must be large enough to warrant the cost of deconstruction*
Due to a finite amount of staff and equipment, we sometimes turn down projects in order to maximize our contribution to Habitat for Humanity’s mission. We cannot commit to small projects, such as single-item or bathroom deconstructions. For small-scale donations, please refer to the ReStore's donation pickup service.
While there is no mandatory fee for a project, it costs Habitat approximately $300 in staffing, insurance etc. to conduct a deconstruction. Please consider a financial donation to fully or partially cover the costs of your project. All donations support Habitat's mission of building affordable housing.
