Demolition Contractor Tips for Indianapolis, Indiana

What kind of permit is required for demolition projects?

The city of Indianapolis requires a wrecking permit for all structural demolition projects. This permit can be given to the property owner, an agent on their behalf, or a general contractor. However, please keep in mind that in a few special circumstances, a contractor may be the only person who can obtain a wrecking permit. For more information on the permitting process, please contact the Department of Code Enforcement Permitting Office.

Will the contractor I hire for my demolition project need to be licensed to work in the state of Indiana?

Yes. Having the proper licensing in place is a vital aspect of the demolition process. Any contractor who works on your home should be fully licensed to work in the state on Indiana. You should also be aware that as of April 1, 2010, it is required that all licensed contractors in the city of Indianapolis provide their individual license number as well as their company license number when applying for a wrecking permit.

How can I apply for a wrecking permit?

Yes, the process of applying for a wrecking permit is fairly easy. You can apply online, or if you wish to apply in person, you can do so by visting the Department of Code Enforcement located at:

1200 Madison Ave. Ste. 100
Indianapolis, IN 46225
Please note that no applications will be accepted after 3:30 PM.

What is the Process For Whole House Demolition, Garage Demolition, or Commercial Building Demolition?

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Indianapolis demolition contractors. Demolishing a home, garage, or commercial building is not a simple project and requires the expertise of a professional demolition contractor to guide the process. During the estimate site visit, interview the contractor for qualifications, references, EPA certifications, and the process the demolition contractor would follow to knock down and remove the building.
  2. Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities. Depending on your location, demolition permits may be required by the city, county, and/ or state. Your local municipality may also have regulations related to notifications, noise, hours of demolition, disposal of the debris, etc... Your hired demolition company should be well informed about local regulations and will often pull the permits on your behalf.
  3. Utilities need to be properly disconnected. Utility companies for gas, water, and electricity need to be contacted. All utilities need to be properly disconnected or terminated at the source prior to demolition. Again, this may be handled by your hired demolition company, but clarify upfront with the contractor all of the services that are provided.
  4. Older homes or buildings need to be inspected for hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to being demolished. If your home or building contains hazardous materials, proper procedures for abatement need to be followed. Your hired demolition contractor may offer this service or sub contract it to an environmental remediation specialist.
  5. Safely tear down the building. For one to three story structures like a shed, garage, or a home, demolition of the structure is usually achieved using large hydraulic equipment like cranes, excavators and/or bulldozers.
  6. Removal and disposal of demolition debris. Debris will be loaded onto trucks or into roll off dumpsters for hauling to recycling centers or landfills. Discuss the options of salvaging and recycling demolition materials with your hired demolition contractor.
