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

         $600 for commercial/industrial facilities

Chicago, IL 60602

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.
