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.

Our simple house demolition cost calculator takes your home's square footage and estimates the cost to demolish it by using the median cost of $9.50 per square foot. Keep in mind that your demolition project could cost more or less than this average.
