|Materials are removed carefully, keeping them intact for reuse.|
Initially, it may seem cost-prohibitive; deconstruction can cost about twice as much as demolition. However, the tax deductions you can get for donating your salvaged materials can offset the cost of the work to remove them, and in some situations even make you money. Keep in mind the other benefits of this approach - less trash and more availability of affordable building materials.
For a very large project deconstruction will take longer, but with a little extra planning it can definitely be worth it. You will want to coordinate with the organization that you plan to send your donation as they will need to prepare a materials list. You'll also need to hire an appraiser who is familiar with the IRS rules regarding this kind of a donation and the forms required to make it work. There are many resources available to make this part of the project smooth and beneficial. If you'd like a name, give me a call and I'll point you in the right direction to get started.
