About our Deconstruction Program
Our trained and fully insured staff can carefully remove items you would like to donate, such as your kitchen cabinets and countertops, from your home. Rather than go to the landfill, these salvaged materials find a second home through the ReStore and help fund our mission to build homes, communities and hope. Your donation may be tax-deductible.
Requirements for Kitchen Cabinet Removal
Cabinets must have been installed after 1980 due to Lead Laws. You can check the age of your home here. For cabinets older than 1980, Habitat ReStore may still be able to pick-up the cabinets for donation and provide you with a donation receipt.
Deconstruction projects will be considered in Fayette County, Nicholasville, Versailles, Midway, Paris, and Frankfort. If you reside in Madison or Clark county, please contact the Madison & Clark County Habitat ReStore for information.
How Does the Deconstruction Process Work?
Request a Deconstruction consultation and we will be back in touch with you shortly!
The Deconstruction Manager will evaluate your project and schedule a mutually convenient timeline for the project.
Our Deconstruction staff will arrive as scheduled to carefully remove the items. You will receive an itemized inventory of everything salvaged for your tax records. Salvaged items will be taken to the Lexington Habitat ReStore for resale.
Frequently Asked Questions
What days do you perform uninstalls and how long will it take?
We schedule kitchen uninstalls Monday through Friday, typically arriving by 9:00 a.m. and finishing in the afternoon.
Do I need my contractor to disconnect the plumbing and electrical before you arrive?
We can disconnect all plumbing and electrical necessary to remove the kitchen cabinets, counter tops, appliances and related items.
How far out are you booked?
While we can sometimes schedule the same week that you call, we are more often than not booked out at least a week. Calling to schedule your uninstall three weeks ahead of time will allow for you to reserve the date that is most convenient for your remodel schedule.
Will you provide me with a receipt for the items donated?
We will send you a receipt of all items donated by email the same day as your project.
Who will come to uninstall my cabinets and appliances?
Only our full time, professionally trained staff will arrive to remove these items from your home. We do not send volunteers on kitchen uninstalls
What other items can you remove while there?
We can remove cabinets, countertops, appliances, sinks, light fixtures, vanities, doors and other small items if time allows.
