How to Increase Your Renovation Budget
Have you found your dream home, but the kitchen needs some updating? Are you a builder who is looking at purchasing a teardown property? Or perhaps you are a multifamily building owner who needs to upgrade some large amenities? There is a way you can increase your renovation budget, providing you with the ability to afford more.
When you have an extensive renovation on your hands, you have a choice to make: demolition or deconstruction. There are significant benefits when choosing deconstruction over the traditional “tear everything down and throw it out” method. Deconstruction carefully takes apart your previous furnishings piece by piece, allowing that material to be reused. Not only are you allowing others to benefit from the old unwanted material, but you are also preventing those building materials from ending up in your local landfill.
How Does Deconstruction Increase My Budget?
When you choose deconstruction, you are donating the unused materials to local non-profit organizations that will, in turn, provide you with tax benefits. Those tax savings can offset the price of your renovation, allowing you to afford higher quality materials or put money back in your pocket. This is an attractive feature for home buyers, builders, and investors, as it allows them more flexibility in their overall budgets.
How Do I Know How Much I’ll Get?
Before you begin the deconstruction process, we will have one of our inspectors visit your property to determine what will be donated. They will provide you with an estimate before the deconstruction takes place. You can use that information to decide whether or not you would like to move forward with deconstruction or rather demolish instead. The vast majority of clients benefit from deconstruction over demolition.
