Demolition Contractor Tips for Urbana, OH

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

Most local municipalities require a permit to demolish a building. 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 they will perform.

Do I need an inspection for environmentally hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to demolition?

Ask your local demolition contractor what is required in your area. 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.

How much does house demolition or building demolition cost?

"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 are the steps for demolishing a house, garage, or commercial building?

  1. Request an estimate or multiple estimates from licensed and insured Urbana 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

Tips for Handling Demolition Projects in Ohio

Follow the proper precautions prior to demolition.

According to federal laws and the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745-20, contractors are required to do several things prior to beginning demolition. They must:

  • Provide notification
  • Conduct thorough inspections to determine if asbestos is present
  • Follow specific work practices
  • Ensure proper disposal of all hazardous materials

This is why it’s imperative that you hire a properly qualified professional to handle your project.

Find the right provider(s) for the job.

Hiring the right service provider is vital to successful project completion. If there’s asbestos-containing material present on your property, have it properly removed by a professional.

Similarly, you should hire the proper demolition contractor to handle the actualy demolition work. One of the easiest ways to find the right contractor for the job is with the help of Hometown Demolition Contractors. There, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes from as many or as few providers as you’d like.


Consider deconstructing before demolishing.

A great way to not only save costs but also help the environment is by deconstructing your structure as much as possible prior to demolition.

Not only does less “house” to demolish mean lower demo and disposal costs, but the materials you salvage can also be donated to charity. For example, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores provide a wide selection of lightly used home improvement materials and home goods to members of your community.

Learn more about deconstruction to determine if it’s a good option for you.


Dispose of that debris the right way.

Sometimes companies will include the cost of hauling and disposal in their quote for demolition, but that's not always the case. If the contractor you hire isn't going to take care of the debris for you, you'll have to dispose of it yourself. Typically the most convenient and affordable way to do that is by renting a dumpster.

Hometown Dumpster Rental can help with that. Find the right dumpster rental provider, read company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes from as many companies as you'd like—all from one site.

Renting a dumpster can seem overwhelming to the first-time renter. There are several factors that can affect pricing and there are many sizes to choose from, but that's why getting quotes from at least 2-3 companies is a good idea.
