Extracting Value Through Deconstruction
Vacant and blighted homes are often seen as a liability to be removed. According to the Building Material Reuse Association, 25% of materials in a home can be reused instead of being landfilled. Materials like wood and brick, as well as the appliances have financial value in the reuse market. Communities with blighted homes may be rich with hidden assets. Your community can extract those assets via deconstruction, the process of systematic dismantling of a building that might otherwise be demolished.
