Home Deconstruction Services

Deconstruction is an eco-friendly way of remodeling your home.  It will not only benefit you, as the homeowner, but also Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.
Using deconstruction during your home remodel or building project can save you money in waste disposal fees, construction costs and project requirements.

Benefits of Deconstruction

Here’s why you should choose deconstruction for your next real estate project.

Full Deconstruction

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles does not provide direct building deconstruction services.

Instead, we have partnered with the Deconstruction & ReUse Network to assist with your full home deconstruction needs.  The Deconstruction & ReUse Network (DRN) is a fee for service 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, that strongly supports the green building philosophy by advancing the general environmental principal of “reduce, reuse and recycle.”

DRN recycles and reuses materials, from roof to foundation, by providing the ReStore with the bulk of usable materials removed from the deconstruction site.  Ask our Donations Center for more information on how to contact DRN.

Partial Deconstruction

Talk to your contractor about carefully removing easily-accessible items from your home.

Items such as modular cabinetry, vanities, sinks, appliances, lighting fixtures, bathtubs, crown & base moulding, shower doors, interior & exterior doors, windows and home décor items that are less labor intensive to remove.

Contact our Donations Coordinator to learn how to start a dialogue with your contractor!
