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.
There are a number of factors that affect house demolition costs:
- Size of house
- Materials used to build the house
- Whether or not hazardous materials are present
- Thickness of foundation
- Disposal fees in your area
- Who you hire to demolish the house
The average cost to demolish a house is $5 - $15 per square foot.
With that information in one hand and the dimensions of your home in the other, you can calculate roughly how much the project will cost.
Example: A house that is 45 ft. x 35 ft. (1,575 sq. ft.) can cost anywhere from $7,875 to $23,625 to demolish.
