Demolition Contractor Tips for McConnellsburg, PA

Is a permit required to demolish a home, garage, or commercial building?

Most local municipalities require a permit to demolish a building. The permits necessary depend on your local and state municipalities. Depending on where you live, permits may be required by the city, county, and/ or state. Your local municipality may also have regulations related to notifications, noise, hours of demolition, disposal of the debris, etc... Your hired demolition contractor should be well informed about local regulations and will pull the permits on your behalf in most cases. Be sure to clarify up front with the contractor all the services they will perform.

Do I need an inspection for environmentally hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to demolition?

Ask your local demolition contractor what is required in your area. Most states require that older homes or buildings be inspected for the presence of asbestos, lead paint, and other hazardous materials prior to being demolished. If your home or building contains hazardous materials that need to be removed, proper procedures for abatement need to be followed. Your hired demolition contractor may offer this service or work with an environmental remediation specialist to complete the removal of hazardous materials.

How much does house demolition or building demolition cost?

"Ballpark" estimates over the phone are usually not possible for residential or commercial building demolition. These almost always require an on-site estimate to ensure accuracy. So many variables affect the price of demolition that it's very difficult for contractors to give you a realistic estimate without actually seeing the property and understanding the challenges they will face when wrecking and removing the building. Some of the factors that affect the cost of demolition include:

  • Environmental issues, such as the need to remove asbestos or underground storage tanks, can significantly increase costs
  • Material (brick, cinder block, wood, etc...) the building was constructed with.
  • Debris disposal - hauling and landfill fees vary widely by location. Are there any salvageable materials that can be diverted from the landfill?
  • Concrete demolition and removal of the foundation adds cost
  • Square foot of the building and the number of stories for the house or building. Multi-level structures add to the cost of demolition.
  • The need for excavation or site clearing and preparation

What are the steps for demolishing a house, garage, or commercial building?

  1. Request an estimate or multiple estimates from licensed and insured McConnellsburg demolition contractors
  2. Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities
  3. Utilities need to be properly disconnected

Consider deconstructing before demolishing.

Deconstruction is a great way to keep some money in your pocket and useable materials out of the landfills. Before demolishing your home or other structure to the ground, consider dismantling any salvageable materials first.

This will minimize the debris and save you money. It could also help your neighbors if you donate the salvageable items to a local charity, like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores.

 

Find the right contractor for your project.

When it comes to demolition projects, hiring the right contractor for your specific needs is necessary to successful project completion. If you want your demo done right, do your research first.

Hometown Demolition Contractors can help you find the perfect contractor for the job. You can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes from as many providers as you'd like. By comparing a minimum of 2-3 contractors, you'll be able to find best deal for the highest quality service.

 

Remember to ask your contractor about debris disposal.

Although demolition contractors will often handle debris disposal, not all of them do. So when shopping around for contractors, this should be something you ask them. One contractor may include the cost of hauling in their quote, while another may not. If they don’t, this is an additional expense you will have to consider.

Renting a dumpster is the most convenient way to manage debris if your demolition contractor isn’t responsible for it. Check out Hometown Dumpster Rental to see company profiles, read customer reviews, and request quotes from as many providers as you’d like.
