You may need to file a notification.
In Tennessee, a notification must be submitted prior to the removal, renovation, or demolition of asbestos when quantities exceed 260 linear feet or more on pipes, 160 square feet or more on other facility components, or 35 cubic feet or more off facility components where the length or area could not be measured previously.
You or your contractor will need to submit a Notification of Demolition and/or Asbestos Renovation. Typically, your contractor will handle this for you, so be sure to discuss this with them up front.
Ensure the contractor you hire meets all the criteria.
A Tennessee Contractor’s License is required to perform any demolition work, and ensuring the contractor you hire is properly licensed is the first box to check on your list of “What My Contractor Should Be.”
In addition, your contractor should have a positive safety record, good customer reviews, and experience in the demolition field. Hometown Demolition Contractors is one of the easiest and fastest ways to find a contractor that meets all your criteria.
Remember to ask your contractor about debris disposal.
Although demolition contractors will often handle debris disposal, not all of them do. So when shopping around for contractors, this should be something you ask them. One contractor may include the cost of hauling in their quote, while another may not. If they don’t, this is an additional expense you will have to consider.
Renting a dumpster is the most convenient way to manage debris if your demolition contractor isn’t responsible for it.
