Don't let your cabinets end up in a landfill!

We can help you salvage and save while supporting your local community at the same time!

Deconstruction (Decon) is a service provided by Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity ReStore to carefully remove kitchen cabinets, counter-tops and appliances prior to a remodel. Your cabinets are then sold in the ReStore to help a family in need of affordable housing.  Decon also helps prevent thousands of pounds of removed cabinets, countertops and more from ending up in a landfill! 

Why use Habitat deconstruction prior to your next remodel?

It gives your cabinets the chance at a second-life.

Your deconstruction donation will be sold in our Habitat for Humanity ReStore - keeping them out of the landfill.

It saves you money!

Our Deconstruction fee is only $100 - substantially lower than the cost of an average contractor ($500). Plus, your donation is tax-deductible!

Support Habitat for Humanity’s local mission.

Proceeds generated from the sale of donated cabinets and other items help to support our homeownership and critical home repair programs. Through these programs, families are able to better prepare for the future with the security of a safe, decent home.

How does the deconstruction program work?




Fill out the form requesting a Deconstruction Consultation. All items must be approved for removal by our deconstruction staff, be in a re-sellable condition, and be donated to the ReStore upon removal. Please include photographs of the materials you would like removed.
