The first step toward getting your demolition project handled properly is getting your home inspected. Next, you'll need to collect all the necessary permits. Most likely, your demolition contractor will handle the permitting process, but this isn't always the case, so be sure you confirm this with them. After the inspection and permits have been posted, it's time for the demolition process to begin. This will vary by which demolition project you're tackling. For example, house demolition will take longer than concrete removal and will be more involved.
