Deconstruction Services

What is deconstruction?

It’s the green alternative to demolition. Instead of creating a “dusty pile of rubble,” deconstruction systematically disassembles a structure to harvest reusable lumber, doors, windows, and fixtures. Before renovating or rebuilding, call Building Value and your next project can become a model of sustainability!

Building Value is the most experienced local deconstruction firm, and the only one with a formal resale structure.

We have completed over 100 projects, continually getting referrals from customers like the Cincinnati Port Authority, Neal’s Remodeling, Baucher Home Remodeling, Christ Hospital, the City of Cincinnati, and satisfied residential clients.


Professional construction managers lead our specially trained crews. Each worker takes Brownfield, Hazardous Materials and OSHA training, and is insured and bonded.


We coordinate with contractors to make sure our work happens in a timely manner. It takes a little longer than a wrecking ball, but careful planning at the beginning makes material recovery quick and orderly.


Because it is careful manual work, deconstruction sometimes costs more upfront than demolition. However, much of the additional cost is offset by reduced disposal fees. You may also quality for a tax deduction when you donate salvaged materials, and can accrue LEED sustainability points. Counting the environmental, social and preservation benefits, most of our customers consider deconstruction by Building Value a bargain!
