Washington Demolition Rules and Tips
Hire the right contractor for the job.
In Washington, you must be licensed as a General or Specialty Contractor, and possess a Demolition License in order to perform demolition work. This is the first requirement your contractor should meet.
In addition, you should do your research on a company before hiring them. Hometown Demolition Contractors is one of the easiest ways to check off all the boxes, i.e. do they offer the services you need, do they have a good track record with customers, etc.

Submit a notification before beginning demolition.
The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants requires that owners or contractors submit a notification form 10 days prior to beginning work. This is required whether there is asbestos present or not.
Oftentimes, your contractor will handle the notification work for you, as it can involve some details that may not be apparent to the average homeowner. However, this isn’t always the case, so always be sure to confirm this with your contractor first.
Know what demolition costs.
While demolition costs vary for a number of reasons—like project type, project size, where you live, and more—knowing the average cost of your specific type of project will help you know what a good deal looks like.
- House Demolition: $4,000 - $14,000
- Barn Demolition: $1,200 - $15,000
- Interior Demolition: $500 - $12,000
- Mobile Home Demolition: $2,600 - $6,550
- Inground Pool Removal: $3,500 - $7,000
- Above Ground Pool Removal: $2,000 - $3,000
- Oil Tank Removal: $1,300 - $3,000
Get multiple opinions to get the best price.
The best thing you can do to make sure you get the fairest price is: Get multiple quotes for the job. We recommend talking to a minimum of three different contractors in your area.
Don’t just compare the bottom line cost though. You also want to look into:
- what each cost includes (permits, debris removal, etc.)
- each contractor’s experience doing that specific work
- what other customers have to say about them
- how long it will take them to complete the project
- payment schedule expectations
