How Greenhouse Removal Is Done

An experienced team can demolish, remove, and dispose of your unwanted greenhouse safely, typically within an hour or two.

If electricity or plumbing run to your greenhouse, they will need to be shut off first and foremost.

The greenhouse removal process is relatively simple, but there's more than one way to get it done.

The two most common methods are tearing it down by hand or using heavy equipment, like a Bobcat skid steer loader.

When it comes to taking apart a greenhouse by hand, they will start at the top and work their way down until the greenhouse is disassembled.

If using heavy machinery, they typically knock it all down in one go.

In most instances, they will load the debris into their hauling vehicle parked nearby or a roll-off dumpster.

Next, they will remove the base of the greenhouse, which is typically gravel, bricks, concrete, or flagstones.
