DeConstruction Services, LLC is a 7-year old environmental company based in Fairfax, VA that disassembles residential and small commercial buildings throughout the DC metropolitan area.  We assist building owners in donating reusable material from these jobs to a partnering IRS tax exempt 501(c)(3))nonprofit organization, The ReBuild Warehouse, that sells it for substantially reduced prices to the general public, remodeling companies, property managers, landlords, and homeowners for their building and renovation needs.  In the process, DeConstruction Services, LLC seeks to:

·         recycle or reclaim for reuse approximately 80% of the structure
·         enable the donors to earn a significant tax deduction for their donations
·         save the property owner expensive debris hauling and disposal costs
·         provide trade skills and permanent employment for hard-to-place workers.  

Corporate mission
Our company’s mission is to maximize:
• the amount of used building materials kept out of the landfill
• The amount of deductions an owner can claim by donating reclaimed building material for charitable purposes.
   

What is deconstruction? 
The careful dismantling of a structure’s reusable finished and recyclable building materials in order to maximize its recycling and reuse (read detailed description of our process).
