Tips for Fort Lauderdale, FL

Is a permit required for demolition in the city of Fort lauderdale?

Yes. According to section 105.1 of the Florida State Building Code (Broward County Amendments), a building permit is required for all construction and demolition projects within city limits.

How can I apply for a demolition permit in Fort Lauderdale?

You can apply for a building permit by using the city of Fort Lauderdale's e-permit service. This tool also allows you to pay your permit fees, check your permit status, and schedule your permit inspections (if necessary). 

Permits can be applied for in person by visiting the city's Building Services Division located at:

Sustainable Development Center
700 NW 19th Ave.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Fort Lauderdale 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.

Helpful Hints for Demolition in Florida

Make sure the contractor you hire is properly licensed.

In Florida, a state or local license is required to contract for the demolition of all buildings or residences. This includes a certified or registered Division I contractor’s license, a state certified specialty contractors license, or a local certificate of competency that corresponds to the specific type of structure being demolished.

Hometown Demolition Contractors is a great resource for finding a local demolition contractor. You can check out the profiles of companies in your area, read customer reviews, and request quotes—all from our convenient site.
 

 

Follow the necessary steps before demolition.

Demolition cannot begin before the proper steps are followed and the necessary precautions are taken. Generally speaking, the contractor you hire will handle these steps, but always be sure to clear that up with them from the start.

In Florida, this generally includes:

  • Obtaining the necessary permits from your local building department
  • Submitting notice to the department 10 working days prior to beginning the demo
  • Conducting an asbestos survey
  • Removing friable or potential friable asbestos-containing materials prior to any work
  • Having an accredited person on site during the removal of friable material
  • Removing and storing any hazardous materials
  • Using water on-site to limit the amount of dust particles in the air

Don’t forget about debris disposal.

Demolition is messy, and if your contractor doesn’t include the cost of hauling and disposing that debris in your contract, then you’re going to be left responsible for cleaning up that mess.

A great way to do that is with the help of a dumpster. Ranging from 10 to 40 yards, it’s a convenient way to manage debris from all kinds of demo projects.

Search for a local dumpster provider using Hometown Dumpster Rental. You can read profiles of various companies in your area, see customer reviews, and request quotes—all in one place.
