Demountable walls are considered tangible personal property so they depreciate seven times more than traditional construction in the first year. By the third year the depreciation reaches the half way mark and by the seventh year as much as 95% is recovered.
While conventional construction has less upfront material and labor costs, it has more down-time as you watch the interest accrue. Meanwhile your build-out of fixed construction depreciates a mere 2.5% per year and in the seventh year…you are still at 18% vs. 95% for a demountable or movable wall system.
Our demountable wall provider, Gravity Lock is a local Houston company that has developed movable wall systems with serious advantages over drywall.
