Demolition tips for Louisville, Kentucky

Yes. According to Section 105.1 of the Kentucky Building Code, any person who intends to demolish, convert, alter, or remove a property or structure is required to have a permit.

For demolition, a wrecking permit is required. A permit is also required for all electric, gas, and mechanical work.

What kind of permit will I need for a commercial demolition project?

For commericla demolition, the city of Louisville requires you to have a commercial wrecking permit.

What is the cost associated with a wrecking permit?

In the city of Louisville, the cost of your wrecking permit will depend on what kind of permit is issued to you.

Currently, there are three types of permits - type "A", type "B", and type "C". Below is a brief outline of the cost associated with each permit type:

Type A

  • Any building with two stories
  • Any structure that is less than 35 feet tall with less than 3,000 sq ft of floor space
  • $50 per 1,000 sq ft, $10 for every additional 1,000 square feet

Type B

  • Any structure or building that does not fit into the criteria for a type "A" permit
  • $75 for the first 1,000 square feet, $10 for every additional 1,000 square feet

Type C

  • Any structure that is 25 feet tall or has more than 1,500 square feet in floor space
  • $50 per 1,000 sq ft, $10 for every additional 1,000 square feet

Please note that only the property owner may apply for a type "C" permit. If a contractor applies for a type "C" permit, and the application meets all of the necessary requirements, a type "A" permit will be issued to them instead.

$500 in cash or a check security bond is also required for all property owners who wish to obtain a type "C" permit. This bond will be returned to you after the work has been completed and all debris has been properly disposed of.

How do I know if a Louisville demolition contractor is properly licensed and insured?

For Louisville demolition companies listed on Hometown Demolition Contractors, we've done the initial homework for you.  At the time a contractor is listed, they provided the appropriate state license (if required by your state) and liability insurance.  Select the name of a demolition contractor you're interested in to see more information, including a list of verified credentials for that contractor.

Hometown's screening process means the contractor produced a valid Kentucky license (if required) and insurance certificates at the time of the screening, but it's possible that the status of the license or insurance could have changed in the meantime. So, it's a best practice to ask to see evidence of license and insurance certificates at the time of your estimate.

Practical Tips for Demolition in the State of Kentucky

Tip 1: Find a contractor who's licensed and has positive reviews.

Residential and commercial contractors are not required by the state of Kentucky to possess certain licensing to perform demolition work, but individual cities do.

It is important that you hire a licensed contractor to perform your demolition work because this guarantees that the most up-to-date safety standards are followed and you, the customer, are fully protected. This is why it's important to check with your local building department to ensure the contractor you hire possesses the proper licensing.

However, being licensed shouldn’t be the only thing on your demo contractor checklist. They should also have a great safety record and positive customer reviews. One of the fastest and easiest ways to find a contractor who meets these standards is with the help of HometownDemolitionContractors.com.


Tip 2: Determine if asbestos is present first and foremost.

Prior to demolishing a house or structure, you will need to have it inspected for asbestos or other hazardous materials. If the structure being demolished does possess asbestos-containing materials, you’ll need to have it properly removed by a contractor certified to perform asbestos abatement.

Tip 3: File all the necessary paperwork (if your contractor doesn't).

When performing demolition in the state of Kentucky, you’ll need to complete and submit a permit application form first. This form will detail your project’s location, property lines, the location of various structures, and more. However, each city has a different permit application form, so be sure to check with your local building department.

Sometimes contractors handle the entire permitting process so you don’t have to do a thing, but you should always clear this up with your contractor first.

If you’re responsible for submitting this form, you’ll likely need to send it to your local department 10 days prior to starting your demo project.


Tip 4: Consider deconstructing in addition to demolishing.

Traditional mechanical demolition is fast, but it’s not always the best option. Deconstruction is a great way to minimize waste going to the landfill. Instead of tearing a structure down to the dirt and having it hauled to the dump, deconstruction involves dismantling a structure piece-by-piece and salvaging as much as possible prior to demolishing the entire structure.

Sometimes, charitable organizations, like Habitat for Humanity, are willing to deconstruct your structure for free in exchange for the materials they salvage. Those materials are then re-purposed in homes that Habitat for Humanity builds or is sold in their ReStores, and can be a tax write-off for you.


Tip 5: Clean up that mess with a dumpster.

It’s easy for customers to forget about what happens once the demolition is all said and done. But once the structure’s fallen, there will be quite a bit of mess left over. In some cases, your contractor will include the price of hauling and disposal in the quote. However, if they don’t handle the disposal process for you, a great way to maintain the debris is with the help of a dumpster.

Dumpsters are an easy way to have large amounts of debris hauled off in one fell swoop and is much easier than making multiple trips to the landfill yourself.

Hometown can help you find a local dumpster rental provider near you, and we make it super easy to find the right one for the job. At HometownDumpsterRental.com, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request a quote.
