Demolition Tips for Salt Lake City, Utah

What information is needed when applying for a demolition permit?

Salt Lake City requires the following information in order for a demolition permit application to be successfully processed:

Will I need a permit to demolish my garage?

In Salt Lake City, any residential one-story detached building or structure no bigger than 200 square feet does not require a permit for demolition. If your garage exceeds 200 feet or is attached, you will require a permit in order to demolish it.

Where do I turn in my completed demolition permit application?

All permit applications are filed through the Salt Lake County Public Works Planning and Development Services Division located at 2001 S. State Street #N-3600, Salt Lake City, UT 84190.

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Salt Lake City 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.
