You must apply for a demolition certificate.
For any kind of demolition, an application must be submitted to the Connecticut Department of Public Heath at least 10 days prior to starting demolition.
These should be submitted along with the associated fee of $50—a check made payable to “Treasurer, State of Connecticut.” Applications submitted without the necessary fee will be returned to the applicant.
You should complete this form and deliver it to:
Connecticut State Department of Public Health
410 Capitol Ave.
Hartford, CT 06106

Find the right contractor—one who’s licensed in the State of Connecticut.
In order to be able to perform demolition, a contractor should maintain the proper licensing. In Connecticut, that means a Class A License for demolishing structures 2 ½ stories or higher, and a Class B License for structures less than 2 ½ stories.
When looking for the right contractor, double check that they have the proper up-to-date licensing.
Another great way to cover your bases is by visiting Hometown Demolition Contractors. There, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes directly—all from one place.
Confirm how the debris will be disposed of.
In most cases, the demolition contractor will include the cost of hauling and disposing of the debris in their quote. However, that’s not always true, so make sure you discuss this with them when gathering quotes.
If they are not going to handle the debris, you may want to rent a dumpster to contain the mess. Hometown Dumpster Rental can help you find the right provider for you. You can read over local company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes directly from the site.
