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

For Modesto demolition companies listed on Hometown Demolition Contractors, we've done the initial homework for you.  At the time a contractor is listed, they provided the appropriate state license (if required by your state) and liability insurance. Select the name of a demolition contractor you're interested in to see more information, including a list of verified credentials for that contractor.

Hometown's screening process means the contractor produced a valid California 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. So, it's a best practice to ask to see evidence of license and insurance certificates at the time of your estimate.

Useful Demolition Tips for the State of California

Make sure you hire the right contractor for the job.

In California, demolition contractors—or a contractor capable of performing demolition—should possess a C-21 license with the State of California.

Having the proper licensing is imperative, but ensuring you hire a reliable and courteous professional can be just as important.

Hometown Demolition Contractors can help you find local demolition contractors who are friendly, experienced, and highly capable. You can read profiles of various companies in your area, check out customer reviews, and request a quote directly—all from one site.

Learn more about how to save on demolition:

There are safety orders you need to follow.

In California, there are a number of steps that should be taken to ensure the safest possible demolition. In Subchapter 4 of the California Code of Regulations, these orders are outlined for your convenience.

You need to have an asbestos survey prior to any demolition.

Before any demolition can take place, you will need to have a certified asbestos surveyor inspect your home for any asbestos-containing material.

A permit is necessary before demolition can take place.

Just like most states, you’ll have to submit a permit application form for demolition before demolition starts, but oftentimes, your contractor will take care of this for you. Always be sure to determine this when getting quotes from contractors.

Take care of the resulting debris properly with a dumpster.

Although some demolition contractors will include the cost of hauling and disposal in their quote, sometimes they might not, and you’ll be left in charge of disposing of the resulting rubble.

One of the most convenient ways to handle that is by renting a dumpster. Our dumpster pricing and dumpster size guides are great resources for a first-time dumpster renter.
