How the Deconstruction Program Works

Are you remodeling a kitchen or home? Our team will
carefully remove cabinets, appliances and other items;
these items are then resold at our Habitat ReStores and
help build homes for low-income families. You get a
tax write-off for the items' value!

1. Submission:

Usually, we deconstruct full-sized kitchens, and we evaluate additional rooms on a case-by-case basis. So are we the right service for your needs? Check out our deconstruction evaluation guidelines to see if our program is a good fit.

2. Preview:

After you've submitted your project we'll contact you to schedule a preview. The preview is a 15 to 20 minute inspection of the area to be deconstructed. It's a great opportunity to ask questions. If the project meets our requirements we’ll work to schedule the best possible deconstruction date. We usually schedule projects 2 to 3 weeks in advance, although availability may be more limited seasonally.

 

 

3. Deconstruction:

Your deconstruction will be carried out by our
fully-insured and professionally-led team. We bring
expertise and experience to every project, having
completed over six hundred deconstructions across
the Denver metro area. We’ve saved clients hundreds
in removal & disposal fees, as well as tax write-offs. 

 


 

4. Tax Benefits:

After deconstruction, we will provide you with an itemized list of the items you donated. Although we would love to help you value your donation, legally we can’t do so. The IRS advises valuing donations at their Fair Market Value. All donations valued over $500 need IRS Form 8283 to be submitted along with your tax forms (see below). The IRS requires a professional appraisal for any donation valued over $5,000.
