Demolition FAQS for Westchester County, New York

Does Westchester County require a permit for demolition?

Yes. Any individual submitting an application for a demolition permit should obtain approval from the Westchester County Department of Health.

Westchester County Permit time limits

  • A demolition permit is valid for 30 days from the date it is issued.
  • In the case of an unusual circumstance, one ten-day extension can be granted by the Director of Public Works or Building Inspector.
  • If a building or structure is unsafe in any way (For example, the presence of asbestos) then that building or structure will need to be demolished within five days of the permit being issued.

Under no circumstances should work continue after these time limits unless a new permit is issued to cover the rest of the work.

How do I know if a Westchester County demolition contractor is properly licensed and insured?

For Westchester County demolition companies listed on Hometown Demolition Contractors, we've done the initial homework for you. Hometown's screening process means the contractor produced a valid New York 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. With that said, it's a best practice to ask to see evidence of license and insurance certificates at the time of your estimate.

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Westchester County 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.
