Have your structure inspected for asbestos.
Before a demolition project can begin, there are a number of precautions and regulations that you must follow.
First and foremost, you will need to have the structure pre-inspected for asbestos and file proper notification of asbestos removal (if asbestos if found and ordered to be removed). This notification can be filed online or by hand.
Oftentimes, the inspector or abatement professional you hire will handle this notification process, but you should always confirm this with them.
Save some money by deconstructing first.
One of the best ways to save some money on your demolition is by deconstructing as much as possible first. This is a great way to keep a bit of money in your pocket and salvageable materials out of the landfills. It could also help your community if you donate the salvageable material to a local charity, like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores.
Hire the right contractor for you and your project.
In Wisconsin, a contractor must have a Dwelling Contractor License in order to perform any demolition work or bid on any demolition project.
In addition, the contractor should have experience in the field, a good track record with customers, and should be reliable. You can check all these boxes with the help of Hometown Demolition Contractors. You can read company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes from as many contractors as you’d like. However, we recommend getting at least 2 - 3 quotes to ensure you get the best possible deal.
Confirm who will handle debris disposal.
During the initial quoting process, when you’re getting quotes from contractors you’re interested in working with, confirm whether or not they will handle debris disposal when the demolition is done.
Oftentimes, they will, but this isn’t always the case, so you should check with them upfront. If they don’t, this is something that you will need to consider, as it is an additional expense.
