Deconstruction Specialists, as the name implies, specializes in selective and whole house deconstruction. We are located in Boulder County, Colorado.

What is Deconstruction?

Deconstruction is the exact opposite of construction – it is the dismantling of a building, piece by piece, in the reverse order of its construction. There are 2 main types of deconstruction: Selective and Whole Structure.

Selective Deconstruction

Partial deconstruction – or soft-stripping – involves the careful removal of reusable materials, which typically includes:

  • Interior finishes
  • Doors
  • Lighting Fixtures
  • Appliances
  • Hardwood floors
  • Cabinets
  • Windows
  • Countertops

Whole Structure Deconstruction

Whole structure deconstruction, of either residential or commercial buildings, takes dismantling further to include salvaging materials from the entire structure, such as:

  • Wall studs
  • Trusses
  • Joists
  • Lumber from framing, etc.
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Wiring
  • Pipes
  • Concrete
  • Architectural features

Typically, 90% or more of the materials in most homes and buildings can be reclaimed for recycling or reuse. Contact us today for a free estimate for your next project.
