Demo Tips for Grand Rapids, MI

I would like to demolish my home. What steps does the city of Grand Rapids require I take?

In order to demolish a residential building or structure within the city of Grand Rapids, the following steps should be taken:

Step 1: Plan your project.
Ensure that all of your utilities have been (or will be) shut off prior to demolition. 

Step 2: File your demolition permit application.
Once your site plans have been completed, turn in your site plans and application to the City of Grand Rapids' Development Center for review. You will also need to provide proof of insurance and payment at this time.

Step 3: Obtain your permit.
This usually takes just a few minutes by visiting the Development Center counter.

Step 4: Secure your property inspections.
This can be done by calling an estimator at least 24 hours in advance.

Is obtaining a permit difficult?

In most cases, obtaining a demolition permit is fairly easy. However, please keep in mind that your permit application must meet at least one of the following criteria in order to be approved:

  • Interior only demolition
  • Court ordered demolition
  • Any property or structure that has been given a notice for repair or demolition by the city of Grand Rapids.
  • Any property or structure with a site plan for redevelopment, approved by the city Planning Department

How long will my demolition permit be valid?

All building, demolition, mechanical, and plumbing permits are good for 6 months from the time they are issued.

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Grand Rapids 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.

How do I know if a Grand Rapids demolition contractor is properly licensed and insured?

For Grand Rapids demolition companies listed on Hometown Demolition Contractors, we've done the initial homework for you. At the time a contractor is listed, they provided the appropriate state license (if required by your state) and liability insurance. Select the name of a demolition contractor you're interested in to see more information, including a list of verified credentials for that contractor.

Hometown's screening process means the contractor produced a valid Michigan license (if required) and insurance certificates at the time of the screening, but it's possible that the status of the license or insurance could have changed in the meantime. So, it's a best practice to ask to see evidence of license and insurance certificates at the time of your estimate.
