Salem Demolition Tips

Is a permit required to demolish a home, garage, swimming pool, or commercial building?

Permits are typically required. The permits necessary depend on your local and state municipalities. 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. Be sure to clarify up front with the contractor all the services your hired contractor will perform.

What are the steps required for building demolition?

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Salem demolition contractors
  2. Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities
  3. Utilities need to be properly disconnected
  4. Older homes or buildings need to be inspected for hazardous materials
  5. Safely tear down the building
  6. Removal and disposal of debris

How much does it cost to demolish a house?

"Ballpark" estimates over the phone are usually not possible for residential or commercial building demolition. These almost always require an on-site estimate to ensure accuracy. So many variables affect the price of demolition that it's very difficult for contractors to give you a realistic estimate without actually seeing the property and understanding the challenges they will face when wrecking and removing the building. Some of the 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

What areas do demolition contractors have expertise in?

Demolition companies have varying degrees of experience and may specialize in different types of services based on their equipment and level of expertise. Check the demolition services offered by the contractors above to find a match for your project.

  • Interior demolition or selective demolition - Soft or "hand" demolition crews tearing down walls, kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, etc... prior to a renovation project.
  • Residential - Demolition of a house, garage, shed, retaining wall, deck, or other residential building (typically less than 3 stories) and usually achieved with hydraulic excavators and bull dozers.
  • Commercial and Industrial - Wrecking services for larger jobs and larger buildings. May require a wrecking ball or controlled (explosive) demolition.
  • Concrete Removal - Concrete demolition and removal of driveways, foundations, patios, sidewalks, etc...
  • Swimming Pool Removal - Swimming pool demolition and removal
  • Hazardous Material Removal - asbestos abatement and removal along with other hazardous materials like lead paint

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.
