3Rs Construction Explains the Difference Between Demolition and Deconstruction
DEMOLITION AND DECONSTRUCTION
The tearing down or deconstructing of a structure or building has become a real science. The primary difference between demolition and deconstruction is in the methods selected to achieve the end result of removing something, usually a structure to make room for something new.
Simply tearing down a structure is called demolition. Deconstruction, on the other hand, makes use of materials from the previous building by carefully taking it apart to insure the preservation of elements for re-use if possible. At 3Rs Construction we have found deconstruction provides the same result as demolition but cause less over all destruction. Deconstruction enables you to recycle some old materials, something the team at 3Rs Construction and other quality green builders like to do, however the additional cost in labor has to be factored into the decision you have to make between deconstructing and straight demolition.
Either of these processes can also be applied when you need to repair or remodel your home or restore fire and water damage. 3Rs Construction Management LLC has a professional construction team that you can trust no matter which direction you take.
If you have a property with an old home or structure of any kind that you no longer want, give 3Rs a call. We can prepare a building to be gutted, recycled, or remove the structure completely.
