Deconstruction

Durham HabitatThe Durham Habitat Deconstruction Program provides a fully-insured service for salvaging building materials from residential and commercial buildings.  This fast, friendly and affordable service saves materials from the landfill and provides clients with a donation receipt for a tax deduction. Donated materials are sold in our ReStore to raise funds for building Habitat homes in Durham and Orange Counties.  

Our services include:

Kitchen Strip: For a flat fee, professionally-trained staff carefully remove and haul away kitchen cabinetry and appliances, cap electrical wires, and clear away debris, leaving the kitchen ready for renovation.

Material Removal: Staff and volunteers remove structurally-sound building materials from residential and commercial buildings undergoing extensive renovation or demolition. Materials removed might include hardwood floors, doors, windows, cabinetry, lighting, lumber, plumbing, hardware and architectural elements. 

To schedule your deconstruction project, please email donate@restoredurhamorange.org.

Habitat Success Stories

Growing up in East Durham, Tora saw the neighborhood decline and bounce back. She was excited to partner with the Streets at Southpoint and Belk to build and purchase her own home in East Durham -- making her part of the neighborhood's revitalization.
