“At E L Custom, we take pride in being at the forefront of the deconstruction industry in the GTA. We firmly believe that deconstruction stands as the most environmentally friendly demolition technique available today. Our mission is to encourage everyone considering a home renovation or rebuilding project to give serious thought to the benefits of deconstruction.


At E L Custom, deconstruction is not just a service; it’s a commitment to sustainability and responsible building practices. Our approach involves the meticulous and selective disassembly of structures, with a primary goal of maximizing the reuse and recycling of materials. This careful process results in minimal waste generation and promotes the upcycling of existing materials, giving them new life in future projects.


Deconstruction is a construction and demolition technique that emphasizes sustainability, resource efficiency, and eco-friendliness. It is gaining popularity as a responsible and environmentally conscious approach to building removal and renovation. Here are some additional details about deconstruction:


Selective Dismantling: Deconstruction involves taking apart a structure piece by piece, rather than using traditional demolition methods like implosion or wrecking balls. Skilled workers carefully dismantle the building, salvaging materials as they go.


Recycling: Deconstruction also promotes recycling by segregating and processing materials like metal, wood, concrete, and glass. These materials are sent to recycling facilities, reducing the need for new resources and decreasing the environmental impact of construction.


Waste Reduction: Compared to traditional demolition, deconstruction significantly reduces the amount of waste generated during the process. This aligns with the principles of the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra.


Cost Considerations: While deconstruction can be more labor-intensive than traditional demolition, the savings from materials reuse and recycling can offset the initial costs. In some cases, deconstruction can be cost-competitive with traditional methods, especially when considering long-term environmental and economic benefits.

Local Regulations: The feasibility and requirements for deconstruction may vary depending on local regulations and building codes. Some municipalities encourage or even mandate deconstruction for certain projects to promote sustainability.


Building Assessment: Before embarking on a deconstruction project, a thorough assessment of the structure is conducted to identify hazardous materials like asbestos and lead-based paint. This ensures the safe and responsible removal of these substances.


Skilled Workforce: Deconstruction requires a skilled and experienced workforce to ensure the safe and efficient dismantling of structures. Workers must be knowledgeable about structural engineering, materials handling, and safety procedures.
