  • The Initial once over: Send us an email with photos of the property you are considering for deconstruction. This should include interior and exterior photos. Additionally you should provide a list of any materials that you do NOT wish to include in the donation for a tax deduction.
  • An onsite visit: We will send an experienced licensed contractor to the property to evaluate, take measurements, and photograph the property for appraisal (performed by an IRS qualified appraiser) to help determine the value of your tax deduction from any material donations.
  • Contract: Our experienced professionals will draft a contract that will lay out the deconstruction process in an easy to follow step by step plan. The contract will list any material donations, services to be performed, applicable cost and an estimated time for the deconstruction to be performed.
  • Commencement of work: After the contract has been agreed to and signed we will immediately perform a piece by piece deconstruction of the property as is outlined in the contract.

Once the property is deconstructed to the contracts specifications we will clean and remove  any and all work debris.

Jim Conboy and Michele Lamothe, owners of the house at 5 Juniper Road, off Compo Road North, decided that instead of tearing down their 1,600-square foot, 1955-built ranch, they would remodel. And instead of bulldozing the part to be remodeled, they hired a deconstruction company to take it apart piece by piece. They are pictured at the house today as pieces were taken apart. According to Lamothe, “It will be a green renovation - -solar, rain water collection system, radiant heat.” She said all the contents will be reused, repurposed or recycled with only the sheet rock ending up in the trash.- Dave Matlow for Photo 1: Outside Deconstruction of a home on Juniper Rd, Westport CT Photo 2: Left to Right: David Mann from Green Tek (Head of remodeling project), Christian Kling (Owner of NEreuse, Co Owner of Nedeconstruction), Mathew Kling (Co-Owner of Nereuse), Steve & Lee, (Members of the New England Deconstruction Staff) and Jim Conboy (Home Owner.)

New England Deconstruction started alongside New England ReUse and The ReUse People of America to meet the ever growing demand for renovation while still preserving our environment and the economic standing of the community. 

As a carpenter Chris Kling was constantly looking for ways to lower the cost of his hand crafted products for his customers while still maintaining the high level of quality his customers had grown to expect. In addition to crafting custom furniture Chris was also offering home renovation services to his local community, a trade that wasn't without its own problems. The accumulated waste from one home renovation alone often provided enough quality materials to remodel entire properties.  The solution to Chris's problems, and many others came in the form of one word: Deconstruction.
