Fox Lake Demolition Tips

Determine if the contractor has the appropriate evidence of license and insurance

At the time a contractor is listed, Hometown Demolition Contractors screens for state license (if required) and liability insurance. Keep in mind, the status of a contractor's license or insurance could change, so it's a best practice to ask for evidence at the time of the quote.

Professional demolition contractors should be able to provide local references from similar jobs

Whether you need do demolish a house or a small commercial building, the demolition contractor you choose should have completed similar jobs in the past year for you to have confidence they understand all the nuances of demolition.  If a demolition company is not able to forward you a couple of recent customers from other demolition projects, find a different contractor.

Determine exactly what services will be done by the Fox Lake demolition contractor and what you will be responsible for

Who will be contacting utility companies for disconnects? Call and find the utility locator service for your area. Gas, water, sewer and electrical utilities need to be contacted and informed of the planned demolition.  Typically advance notice is often required.  Don't call the day before your tear down to request your utility lines be located and shut off.  Contacting utility companies should be completed a few weeks in advance of the tear down.

Determine what permits are required and who will be responsible for pulling those permits

Ask your demolition company if they will be responsible for obtaining the permit and maintaining requirements. Often, municipalities require specific things from permit holders,  like a demolition site plan or installation of erosion control measures.  Ask your contractor if he/she will be pulling the permit and if any special requirements need to be maintained.

Tips and Tricks for Demo in Illinois

The IEPA must be notified of your demolition project.

In the state of Illinois, you must notify the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) of any demolition project or asbestos abatement project greater than 3 sq. ft.

The homeowner or demolition contractor should fill out this form and submit it to one of the following departments, depending on your project’s location:

IL Environmental Protection Agency
P.O. Box 19276 MC 41
1021 N Grand Ave East
Springfield, IL 62794
Fee: $150

Chicago Dept. of Public Health Permitting & Inspections
333 S State St, Room 200
Chicago, IL 60604
Fee: $300 for residential units < 4 units
         $450 for residential units 4+ units
         $600 for commercial/industrial facilities

Cook Co. Dept. of Environmental Control
69 W. Washington, Suite 1900
Chicago, IL 60602
Fee: $200

NOTE: Pay attention to the fees associated with each location, as they differ from department-to-department.

As mentioned previously, the homeowner or contractor is responsible for filing all necessary paperwork and acquiring the essential permits/paperwork. However, this varies from contract-to-contract, and you should always discuss who is responsible for the permitting process with your demolition provider to eliminate confusion.


Find out if asbestos is an issue.

Before demolishing your home or any structure that may contain asbestos or other hazardous materials, like lead paint, your property must be surveyed by a state licensed asbestos contractor.

If asbestos is present, it must be properly abated and all necessary precautions must be taken to minimize airborne dust particles. If your structure is located in the city of Chicago, contractors handling asbestos and lead hazards must comply with Sections 11-4-2150 to 11-4-2190, and provide Notice of Intent to the Department of Public Health.


Ensure your contractor holds the proper licenses.

The state of Illinois may not regulate the construction/demolition industry, but individual cities and municipalities do.

Before beginning any demo work, a contractor is required to check with their city or county to learn which permits and licensed they need.

Licensing laws are set forth by cities and municipalities to ensure the necessary safety standards are met, so before hiring a contractor, you should check that they have the license necessary to perform demolition in that area.

In addition to having the proper licensing, you should do your research to ensure the contractor you hire has a good track record with customers. Hometown Demolition Contractors is a great resource for reading company profiles, seeing what customers have to say about their service quality, and request quotes—all from one convenient location.
 

Don’t forget to dispose of all that dust and debris.

Demolition jobs can get messy, especially if it’s a large project, like house demolition. Although some contractors will handle the debris disposal, including the cost of labor and disposal in the demolition quote, that’s not always the case.

If you’re left responsible for getting the demolition debris to the landfill, consider renting a dumpster.

Hometown Dumpster Rental is one of the easiest ways to find the right dumpster provider and the right dumpster size for your project.
