Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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.

Useful Nebraska Demolition Tips

Have the structure properly inspected before demo begins.

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) enforces the EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for asbestos. This states that, prior to any demolition or renovation, a structure must be properly inspected for asbestos-containing materials.

An inspector certified in accordance with the DHHS Nebraska Asbestos Control Program Regulations, Title 178, must do the inspection.

Contact DHHS at (402) 471-0386 if you have any questions.


Apply for a demolition permit.

Each city or municipality throughout the state of Nebraska has its own demolition permit application, so no matter where you live, you’ll have to fill one of these out.

However, your demolition contractor may take responsibility for the permitting process, so always be sure to discuss this with them in advance.

Here some examples of what a demolition permit application looks like:


Find the right contractor for you and your project.

In the state of Nebraska, a demolition provider must possess a Building Moving and Demolition license. Hiring a properly licensed contractor is imperative to ensuring your project is completed in a safe and professional manner.

However, the contractor you decide to hire shouldn’t just be licensed—they should also be courteous, reliable, and highly trained in their field. A great way to find the perfect contractor for the job is with the help of Hometown Demolition Contractors.
