Factors That Affect Brick Removal Pricing

As you can see from the table above, the price of brick removal is heavily influenced by the amount of brick you need removed.

Beyond the size, where you're located geographically can also influence the price you pay for brick removal based on the cost of living (COL) in your area.

In Forth Worth, TX where the COL is 99.8/100, a customer paid $4.17 per sq ft for a brick patio slab to be demolished.

In Parma Heights, OH where the COL is 81.5/100, a customer paid $3.57 per sq ft to demolish their brick patio slab.

Small price differences like this may seem insignificant, but they make a big difference when it comes to larger projects, so be sure to keep that in mind when calling around to different contractors in your area.

It is also worth mentioning that one of the biggest, yet most commonly overlooked, aspects that affect the price of your brick removal is the contractor you hire to do so. 

Every contractor is unique and has its own operational costs to consider, so calling around to at least 2-3 companies for free quotes is always recommended. 

This will ensure you get the best price and allow you to move forward with a company that will best suit your needs.
