Demolition Tips for Kansas City, Missouri

How much does a demolition permit cost?

In Kansas City, the cost associated with your demolition permit depends on what you are demolishing. A brief price outline is given below, current as of 2013:

  • Residential one and two family homes and all detached buildings - $83
  • All other structures not included above - $204

Note: these fees are per building or structure to be demolished. A pre-demolition inspection fee may also be applied prior to the building or structure being demolished. This fee is roughly $35 for all residential buildings and $98 for all other structures.

Where can I get a demolition permit in Kansas City, MO?

You can obtain a demolition permit by filing an application at the City Planning and Development Office located at 414 E. 12th St. 15th floor, City Hall, Kansas City, MO 64106.

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Kansas City 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 Kansas City demolition contractor is properly licensed and insured?

For Kansas City 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 Missouri 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.
