All Demolition Tips

The Demolition Process

If you're having a structure demolished, like a home or a commercial structure, these are the basic aspects of the demolition process you should be familiar with.

Step 1: Have the building inspected.

Step 2: Gather the necessary permits. (Your contractor will likely handle this, so confirm this with them.)

Step 3: Disconnect existing services and utilities.

Step 4: Tear down the house using heavy machinery or deconstruction methods.

Step 5: Haul away the debris to the nearest landfill or recycling facility.
