Finding a Green Demolition Company

One of the most notable changes in our nation has been the shift in thinking towards sustainability and eco-friendly practices, especially when it comes to construction and demolition. The focus on reusable and recyclable goods inspires individuals and companies to embrace environmentally sustainable options, like green demolition, also known as deconstruction. This still is a newer concept for many, so it can be challenging to find a company that can help people and businesses complete this green alternative.

What Exactly Is Green Demolition?

With traditional demolition practices, a building would be torn down, and materials would be hauled away and thrown into a landfill. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the US creates more than 530 million tons of construction and demolition waste each year. What if we could eliminate 90% of that waste? That is precisely what deconstruction aims to do. Instead of knocking a building down using demolition equipment, a non-profit organization deploys a deconstruction team to carefully “unbuild” a building, removing materials carefully for reuse. These building materials are donated for other community purposes, such as low-income houses or other community uses.

What to Look for In a Company

When you are looking to utilize deconstruction, you will want to talk to a team with the knowledge, experience, and ability to quickly and efficiently handle the process from start to finish. As the largest deconstruction personal property appraisal firm in the nation, we pride ourselves on carefully cultivating our team to provide the best experience possible. When looking for a green demolition company, make sure their appraisers are qualified, as required by the IRS. Only a qualified appraiser can provide you with the appraisal document you need to receive your tax deduction.
