Tips for Macon, GA

Will the contractor I hire need to be licensed to work in Bibb County?

Yes. State law and local ordinances require all contractors be licensed to work in the state of Georgia. The contractor you hire for your demolition project must be fully licensed in order to obtain the necessary permits for your job.

Note: As of 2008, Georgia law requires certain general and residential contractors to have a valid "state card" prior to performing any demolition or construction work. Further information on this requirement is available on the Secretary of State website.

Where can I get a demolition permit in Bibb County?

Building permits for demolition purposes are available at:

The Department of Inspection and Fees

682 Cherry St, Suite 500.

Macon, GA 31201

For your convenience, you can print out your building permit ahead of time, fill it out, and drop it off at the office anytime between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

Note: At this time, general contractor and building permits may not be faxed in.

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

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Macon 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.

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

For Macon 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 Georgia 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.

Georgia Demolition Tips and Rules

Determine who is responsible for the permitting process.

Throughout the state of Georgia—regardless of the city your project is located—you will need to apply for the proper permitting before beginning demolition.

Depending on your location, there will be different expectations for the permit, but typically your contractor will take care of this process. Always be sure to check with them first.

In Georgia, there are a number of steps you must follow in order to be approved for a demolition permit. Generally speaking, the demolition contractor will handle the entire permitting process for you, but always verify this with them up front.

If the contractor doesn’t handle the permits, you’ll need to submit an application to your local building department, along with:

  • Site plans
  • Proof that site is free of hazardous materials
  • Proof that site is rodent free
  • Proof that utilities are shut off

Check with your local department to verify exactly what is required in order to receive a demolition permit.

Determine if you need an asbestos inspection.

If you’re having your home or a structure that could potentially have hazardous waste demolished, you’ll need to have it inspected for asbestos first. A state-certified asbestos inspector will need to survey your property, and an abatement expert will need to remove any discovered asbestos-containing material properly.


Don’t forget the dust and debris.

It’s easy for customers to forget about what happens after the demolition is all said and done. But once the structure’s fallen, there will be quite a bit of mess left over. In some cases, your contractor will include the price of hauling and disposal in the quote. However, if they don’t handle the disposal process for you, a great way to maintain the mess is with the help of a dumpster.

Dumpsters are a convenient way to have large amounts of debris hauled off in one fell swoop and is much easier than making multiple trips to haul the debris yourself.

Hometown can help you find a local dumpster rental provider near you, and we make it super easy to find the right one for the job. At, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request a quote.
