At Kloos Hauling & Demolition, we specialize in traditional demolition, as well as modern deconstruction methods that preserve the integrity of building materials and allow them to be reused. We’ll help you learn more about deconstruction, how it’s different from demolition, and its benefits for your project or situation.
Understanding deconstruction and how it differs from demolition
Traditional demolition techniques used in residential and commercial buildings are not concerned with damaging the materials used to craft the building – the goal of the demolition is simply to remove and haul away the previous materials to allow for future construction.
Deconstruction, as the name implies, is different. It focuses on disassembling an interior or exterior demolition project in a way that allows the materials to be preserved and re-used. This usually involves quite a bit more labor, but if you are interested in re-using the materials from a building or room, it’s a great option.
As an example, if you are overhauling your bathroom, traditional demolition may involve breaking apart the wall tiles with a chisel and hammers and scraping them away from the wall. They will be removed – but they will be destroyed.
In contrast, deconstruction would involve using special techniques to heat and weaken the grout, remove it, scrape it away, and remove each individual tile from the wall using a chisel or pry bar. The goal would be to remove the tile while preserving as much of the material as possible.
Deconstruction for commercial and residential projects
At Kloos Hauling & Demolition, we can offer professional deconstruction services for commercial and residential demolition projects of any size.
Whether you’re working on a historic building and want to preserve the original materials, you wish to preserve building materials to save money on a future project, or you want to donate materials to a charity like Habitat for Humanity and the ReStore, we can help.
We will assist in the removal of materials, demolition of the structure or interior room, and every other part of your deconstruction project – and maximize the number of materials that we save so that they can be reused in future projects or donated.

If you’re working on a building with valuable materials that are still in good, usable or salvageable condition and you would like to re-use them, deconstruction may be a good option. However, it may not always be a cost-effective option, particularly in buildings where most building materials are not reusable or are in poor condition.
