Salvage

Salvage services, reclamation, deconstruction, and green demolition. Different words to describe the same process: taking a structure apart piece by piece for the purpose of reuse. With over 40 years of combined experience in the art of dismantling for reuse, our licensed and insured crew salvages up to 90% of a structure’s desirable materials. Available to our customers at The RE Store, salvaged materials than live on in the homes and buildings of our community.

Get in touch today and learn how we can help you reduce costs, save time, and protect the environment with your upcoming demolition.
