Tips and Rules for Demolition in Washington, D.C.

You need a permit for demolition work.

In Washington, D.C., you must acquire a building permit for all demolition projects. If you begin a demolition project before acquiring the proper permit, you’ll be fined. There are fees to consider too.

You can apply for a permit at 1100 4th Street SW, 2nd Floor. However, your contractor may handle the entire permit process for you, so be sure to check with them first.

Have your structure inspected for hazardous materials.

If you’re demolishing your home or a structure that may contain asbestos, lead, or other hazardous materials, have it inspected by a Washington, D.C. licensed inspector.

If hazardous materials are found, they will need to be disposed of properly by a licensed abatement contractor. Even if no hazardous materials are found, you will have to notify your local building department.

Find the right contractor at

Hiring the right contractor for the job includes making sure they’re licensed to perform demolition in Washington, D.C., reading customer reviews, and doing your research on a company’s background and services.

Don’t forget to find a solution for all that debris.

In some cases, your demolition contractor will handle the hauling and disposal of the debris from your demo project, but that isn’t always true.

A great resource for finding a local, reliable dumpster provider near you is Hometown Dumpster Rental.

There, you can read company profiles, learn about their services, find out what customers have to say about them, and request a quote directly from the site. It’s that easy.

Check with your demolition contractor ahead of demolition time to determine who is responsible for the debris. If that isn’t include in your quote price, it’s an additional expense you’ll want to consider.
