Frequently Asked Questions of Demolition Contractors in Amherst, MA

How much does house demolition or building demolition cost? Can I get a "ballpark" estimate over the phone?

Home demolition, garage demolition, or commercial building demolition almost always require an on-site estimate because there are so many variables that affect the cost of demolishing a building. 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

Do I need a permit for demolition?

Yes, permits are typically required. 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, but be sure to clarify up front with the contractor all the services they will perform.

Does my home or building need to be inspected for hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to demolition?

Most states require that older homes or buildings be inspected for the presence of asbestos, lead paint, and other hazardous materials prior to being demolished. If your home or building contains hazardous materials that need to be removed, proper procedures for abatement need to be followed. Your hired demolition contractor may offer this service or work with an environmental remediation specialist to complete the removal of hazardous materials.

Tips and Tricks for Handling Demolition in Massachusetts

Have the structure inspected for asbestos first.

In accordance with 310 CMR 7.15, you must have a thorough pre-demolition inspection of the structure in order to identify any asbestos-containing material or possible asbestos-containing material.


Notify the MassDEP of your impending demolition.

In accordance with 310 CMR 7.09, Massachusetts requires notification 10 business days prior to starting demolition. Submit a Notification Prior to Construction or Demolition form (BWP AQ 06) via MassDEP’s website. If you’d prefer to file a paper notification, you can fill it out and mail it to:

MassDEP
P.O. Box 4062
Boston, MA 022211

Each notification must also be accompanied by a $100 fee in order to be considered valid.


Dumpsters are a great way to contain demolition debris.

Many contractors may include the price of hauling in their quote for demolition, so be sure to ask when calling around to different companies. However, if they don't, you'll likely have to haul the debris to a landfill yourself or rent a dumpster to have another company haul it away for you.

Hometown Dumpster Rental is the easiest way to find a reliable local dumpster provider near you. You can read up on various companies, see what past customers have to say about their services, and contact them directly—all in one convenient place.

If you're a first-time renter, learn more about dumpster pricing and dumpster sizing to ensure you get the best deal on your dumpster rental.
 

Consider deconstruction to save money (and the environment).

Rather than demolishing your home in one fell swoop the ol' fashioned mechanical way, consider deconstructing your house first.

Deconstruction is a fast-growing trend in which structures are carefully dismantled in order to salvage any reusable materials.

This significantly reduces the materials going into our landfills, and actually saves you money in the long run. Oftentimes, charitable organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity, are willing to deconstruct your house for free in exchange for the materials they salvage.
