Staying true to our commitment of keeping you informed, we compiled a short list of the most common ones.

How Is Commercial Demolition Executed?

There are a few ways to do a demolition job. The primary approach is mechanical demolition, which uses heavy machinery. Think bulldozers and wrecking balls. The following method is deconstruction. We use handheld tools to try salvaging the surrounding structure. It's like building in reverse. Then there are explosive demolition jobs; or, more accurately, implosive. This is where all surrounding structure gets blasted to smithereens.

Is This Industry Regulated?

Yes. A certificated demolition contractor is very regulated. There is a multitude of governing bodies that have to give their approval. A contractor is beholden to local municipal building departments. Additionally, there are federal environmental regulations, as well as for health and safety. We are bound by law to follow these rules and guidelines. These governing bodies are the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP).

How Much Will My Demolition Job Cost?

It's not possible to give an exact quote because the price varies a lot. It depends on the extent of the demolition site. The form of demolition used and the complexity involved are other factors. You also have to factor in the cost of materials. Are there any permit fees? Hazardous materials? Plus, cleaning up and disposing of debris is going to add to the price. Based on the national average, commercial demolition runs between $4 and $8 per square foot.

We hope that we provided sufficient answers to the most common questions we get. If you do have a demolition job, feel free to inquire about a free quote. Remember, there are lots of variables that can influence the cost and circumstances. An industry professional can determine the best method of demolition. We will let you know of any extenuating circumstances. Remember, if you have further questions, get in touch with us.
