How is building demolition done?

The two most common ways to demolish a structure are either traditional, mechanical demolition with the assistance of heavy equipment, or by tearing down the structure by hand (also known as deconstruction).

Mechanical demolition is the most common form of demolition—the structure is ripped down with the help of hydraulic excavators and other heavy machinery. The resulting debris is then hauled away, typically using a dumpster rental.

How much does building demolition cost?

Traditional mechanical demolition is the cheapest and fastest structural demolition option, with the average structural demolition cost ranging quite a bit due to the various factors that come into play.

For example, house demolition ranges from $4,000-$14,000 on average, commercial building demolition ranges from $20,000-$40,000 on average, barn demolition ranges from $1,500-$10,000, and garage demolition ranges from $1,000-$3,000 on average.

Who should I hire to help with my building demolition?

To ensure you hire the best contractor, we recommend getting three estimates when possible to adequately compare experience, customer service, costs, and availability before hiring someone to assist with your structural demolition project.
