Demolition Contractor Tips for St Louis, Missouri

What is the process to demolish a house, garage, or commercial building?

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured St Louis demolition contractors. Demolishing a building is not a simple project and requires the expertise of a professional contractor to guide the process. During the estimate site visit, interview the contractor for qualifications, references, EPA certifications, and learn the process the company 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 contractor is properly licensed and insured?

For demolition companies listed on Hometown, 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 company you're interested in to see more information, including a list of verified credentials.

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.
