Demolition Tips

No matter what demolition project you're facing, a contractor must have the appropriate local and state licensing in order to perform the demolition work. Hiring an unlicensed contractor could result in an unsafe work environment, removal of your project without warning or compensation, and/or hefty fines. Licensing requirements for contractors are different from one state to the next, while other states leave licensing completely up to local levels. Make sure you know your area's licensing requirements to be sure you hire a qualified professional.
