Deconstruction

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are temporarily closed to the public as a COVID-19 safety measure. We are not able to accept donations at this time. Learn More.

Lexington Habitat’s 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 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 Counties ReStore for information.

 

How Does the Deconstruction Process Work?

  1. Schedule a Deconstruction uninstall and we will be back in touch with you shortly!

  2. The Deconstruction Manager will evaluate your project and schedule a mutually convenient timeline for the project.

  3. 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, arriving by 9:00 a.m. and typically finishing around noon.

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 two weeks ahead of time will allow for you to reserve the date that is most convenient for your 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, counter tops, appliances, sinks, light fixtures, vanities, doors and other small items if time allows. We can also accept furniture the same day if space on the truck allows.
