What You Should Know About Demolition in Wisconsin
Have your structure inspected for asbestos.
Before a demolition project can begin, there are a number of precautions and regulations that you must follow.
First and foremost, you will need to have the structure pre-inspected for asbestos and file proper notification of asbestos removal (if asbestos if found and ordered to be removed). This notification can be filed online or by hand.
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.
Hire the right contractor for you and your project.
In Wisconsin, a contractor must have a Dwelling Contractor License in order to perform any demolition work or bid on any demolition project.
In addition, the contractor should have experience in the field, a good track record with customers, and should be reliable. You can check all these boxes with the help of Hometown Demolition Contractors. You can read company profiles and customer reviews, and request quotes from as many contractors as you’d like. However, we recommend getting at least 2 - 3 quotes to ensure you get the best possible deal.
Confirm who will handle debris disposal.
During the initial quoting process, when you’re getting quotes from contractors you’re interested in working with, confirm whether or not they will handle debris disposal when the demolition is done.
Oftentimes, they will, but this isn’t always the case, so you should check with them upfront. If they don’t, this is something that you will need to consider, as it is an additional expense.
Save some money by deconstructing first.
One of the best ways to save some money on your demolition is by deconstructing as much as possible first. This is a great way to keep a bit of money in your pocket and salvageable materials out of the landfills. It could also help your community if you donate the salvageable material to a local charity, like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores.
