Joliet Demolition Tips

Is a permit required to demolish a home, garage, swimming pool, or commercial building?

Permits are typically required. The permits necessary depend on your local and state municipalities. Depending on where you live, 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 contractor should be well informed about local regulations and will pull the permits on your behalf in most cases. Be sure to clarify up front with the contractor all the services your hired contractor will perform.

What are the steps required for building demolition?

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Joliet demolition contractors
  2. Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities
  3. Utilities need to be properly disconnected
  4. Older homes or buildings need to be inspected for hazardous materials
  5. Safely tear down the building
  6. Removal and disposal of debris

How much does it cost to demolish a house?

"Ballpark" estimates over the phone are usually not possible for residential or commercial building demolition. These almost always require an on-site estimate to ensure accuracy. So many variables affect the price of demolition that it's very difficult for contractors to give you a realistic estimate without actually seeing the property and understanding the challenges they will face when wrecking and removing the building. Some of the factors that affect the cost of demolition include:

  • Environmental issues, such as the need to remove asbestos or underground storage tanks, can significantly increase costs
  • Material (brick, cinder block, wood, etc...) the building was constructed with.
  • Debris disposal - hauling and landfill fees vary widely by location. Are there any salvageable materials that can be diverted from the landfill?
  • Concrete demolition and removal of the foundation adds cost
  • Square foot of the building and the number of stories for the house or building. Multi-level structures add to the cost of demolition.
  • The need for excavation or site clearing and preparation

What areas do demolition contractors have expertise in?

Demolition companies have varying degrees of experience and may specialize in different types of services based on their equipment and level of expertise. Check the demolition services offered by the contractors above to find a match for your project.

  • Interior demolition or selective demolition - Soft or "hand" demolition crews tearing down walls, kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, etc... prior to a renovation project.
  • Residential - Demolition of a house, garage, shed, retaining wall, deck, or other residential building (typically less than 3 stories) and usually achieved with hydraulic excavators and bull dozers.
  • Commercial and Industrial - Wrecking services for larger jobs and larger buildings. May require a wrecking ball or controlled (explosive) demolition.
  • Concrete Removal - Concrete demolition and removal of driveways, foundations, patios, sidewalks, etc...
  • Swimming Pool Removal - Swimming pool demolition and removal
  • Hazardous Material Removal - asbestos abatement and removal along with other hazardous materials like lead paint

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.
