Tips for Seattle, WA

I would like to demolish a shed in my backyard. Will I require a demolition permit?

It depends on the size of the shed. According to Section 106 of the Seattle Building Code, demolition-only permits are required for the removal of any building or structure with more than 120 square feet of "projected" roof area. Any structure smaller than that will not require a permit.

I would like to demolish a building on my property so that I can rebuild. What kind of permit will I need?

In the city of Seattle, a Master Use Permit is required when demolishing a building or structure with the intention to rebuild in that area in the future.

Note: A Master Use permit is also required for any demolition taking place over water, or for the demolition of any property or structure in a landmark district.

Where can I obtain a demolition permit in Seattle?

All permit applications are available in the Department of Planning and Development (DPD), which is located at:

The Seattle Municipal Tower
700 5th Ave., Floors 19-22
Seattle, WA

Note: To determine whether or not a permit is actually needed for your demolition project, visit the Applicant Services Center to speak with a permit specialist.

What is the Process For Whole House Demolition, Garage Demolition, or Commercial Building Demolition?

  1. Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Seattle demolition contractors. Demolishing a home, garage, or commercial building is not a simple project and requires the expertise of a professional demolition contractor to guide the process. During the estimate site visit, interview the contractor for qualifications, references, EPA certifications, and the process the demolition contractor would follow to knock down and remove the building.
  2. Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities. Depending on your location, demolition 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 company should be well informed about local regulations and will often pull the permits on your behalf.
  3. Utilities need to be properly disconnected. Utility companies for gas, water, and electricity need to be contacted. All utilities need to be properly disconnected or terminated at the source prior to demolition. Again, this may be handled by your hired demolition company, but clarify upfront with the contractor all of the services that are provided.
  4. Older homes or buildings need to be inspected for hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to being demolished. If your home or building contains hazardous materials, proper procedures for abatement need to be followed. Your hired demolition contractor may offer this service or sub contract it to an environmental remediation specialist.
  5. Safely tear down the building. For one to three story structures like a shed, garage, or a home, demolition of the structure is usually achieved using large hydraulic equipment like cranes, excavators and/or bulldozers.
  6. Removal and disposal of demolition debris. Debris will be loaded onto trucks or into roll off dumpsters for hauling to recycling centers or landfills. Discuss the options of salvaging and recycling demolition materials with your hired demolition contractor.

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.

Asbestos-related notification of demolition FAQs


Remember to ask about debris disposal.

During the initial quoting process, as you’re collecting prices from various contractors (we recommend getting 2-3 quotes at least), be sure to ask them if they will handle disposal. Some of them do, and they will include the price of hauling and disposal in the price of demolition.

If they leave you responsible for debris disposal, that will be an extra expense you have to consider. So always be sure to check with them about this, as it could mean the difference between choosing Contractor A and Contractor B.

If you’re left in charge of debris removal, consider renting a dumpster to do so. Hometown Dumpster Rental is the best way to find the best dumpster. You can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes from as many providers as you’d like.
