Tips for Handling Seattle, WA Demolition
Get a permit if necessary.
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.
In some cases, the demolition contractor might insist on pulling the necessary permits for a job, but this is not always the case; they may insist you obtain the permit(s).
Having your demolition contractor obtain the permits for you can prove to be a much more stress-free experience, so make sure you confirm with the contractor(s) you speak with whether or not they will handle the permitting process.
Know what your project should cost.
Due to the scope of demolition, each project type will cost different. Even the cost to remove concrete can range in thousands of dollars. For example, the average concrete driveway removal project costs roughly $1,800, while the average cost to remove a concrete foundation is $5,950.
Likewise, when it comes to house demolition, the size, location, accessibility, materials used to build the home, whether or not hazardous materials are present, and other factors will all come into play when it comes to cost.
To get the best deal on your project, we recommend reaching out to multiple contractors. This will allow you to compare prices and what’s included.
