If you're considering demolishing your house, you're likely curious as to how much it's going to cost.
And while it's a simple question, the answer is not so simple.
$5-$15 per sq ft
If you live in an area with a low cost of living and your house doesn't contain any hazardous materials, you can likely multiply the lower end of this average ($5-$10) by your house's square footage to get a general idea of how much your project will cost.
If you live in an area with a high cost of living or your home contains hazardous materials or other complications, you should multiply the higher end of this average ($10-$15+) by your home's square footage to get a general idea of how much your project will cost.
As mentioned above, there are factors that impact house demolition pricing, like:
- Size of the house
- Materials used to build the house
- Whether or not hazardous materials are present
- Whether or not the foundation is being removed
- Disposal fees in your area
- Who you hire to demolish the house
