Follow the proper precautions prior to demolition.
According to federal laws and the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745-20, contractors are required to do several things prior to beginning demolition. They must:
- Provide notification
- Conduct thorough inspections to determine if asbestos is present
- Follow specific work practices
- Ensure proper disposal of all hazardous materials
This is why it’s imperative that you hire a properly qualified professional to handle your project.

Find the right provider(s) for the job.
Hiring the right service provider is vital to successful project completion. If there’s asbestos-containing material present on your property, have it properly removed by a professional.
Similarly, you should hire the proper demolition contractor to handle the actualy demolition work. One of the easiest ways to find the right contractor for the job is with the help of Hometown Demolition Contractors. There, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes from as many or as few providers as you’d like.
Consider deconstructing before demolishing.
A great way to not only save costs but also help the environment is by deconstructing your structure as much as possible prior to demolition.
Not only does less “house” to demolish mean lower demo and disposal costs, but the materials you salvage can also be donated to charity. For example, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores provide a wide selection of lightly used home improvement materials and home goods to members of your community.

Dispose of that debris the right way.
Sometimes companies will include the cost of hauling and disposal in their quote for demolition, but that's not always the case. If the contractor you hire isn't going to take care of the debris for you, you'll have to dispose of it yourself. Typically the most convenient and affordable way to do that is by renting a dumpster.
Hometown Dumpster Rental can help with that. Find the right dumpster rental provider, read company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes from as many companies as you'd like—all from one site.
Renting a dumpster can seem overwhelming to the first-time renter. There are several factors that can affect pricing and there are many sizes to choose from, but that's why getting quotes from at least 2-3 companies is a good idea.
