You must provide the proper notification before demo.
In Montana, there are two kinds of forms to choose from when it comes to notifying the Montana Department of Environmental Quality of your impending demolition.
If there is no asbestos remaining, you should fill out the Demolition Notification with No Asbestos.
If there is asbestos present, fill out the Demolition Notification with Asbestos Project Permit Application.
You can apply for an asbestos project permit online, too, but no matter how you apply for a permit, it must be done 10 business days prior to demolition is to begin.
Find a contractor that’s right for the job.
Not only should your demolition provider be registered with the Department of Labor and Industry, but they should also have a good track record with customers.
Hometown Demolition Contractors is an excellent resource for finding the perfect contractor for you and your project. There, you can learn more about companies and their services, read customer reviews, and request quotes from as many providers as you’d like.
Salvage as much material as possible.
A great way to save on demolition costs is by dismantling a structure as much as possible prior to bringing in heavy equipment. By removing any flooring, baseboards, appliances, plumbing, etc. that may be reused, resold, or recycled, you’re removing debris that would otherwise need to be disposed of, and you’re helping the environment and your community, too!
