Demolition is not a DYI Project
First, we get it, it’s tempting for homeowners to try and save money by making the demolition step a DYI weekend. But, the truth is demolition is dirty and often dangerous work. Demo work almost always consists of unforeseen pitfalls ranging from minor annoyances like falling debris to potentially dangerous situations.
Working with a professional will ensure the job runs smoothly by handling such tasks as acquiring all necessary permits, as well as shutting off utilities when necessary in order to preserve the integrity of the home and the safety of the neighborhood.
A demolition professional can also offer advice with regard to how the design of the new area will impact critical components of the home such as load-bearing walls, electrical wires, and plumbing pipes, and other critical structures.
By using only professional tools actually made specifically for demo projects, a professional demolition contractor can get the job done safely and efficiently with minimal downtime due to unexpected surprises such as asbestos or pest contamination.
Once the job is complete, a professional demolition contractor will also handle the task of removing all waste materials from the site. Junk removal is a job in and of itself.
Finding the Right Demolition & Junk Removal Contractor
It’s important for homeowners to have at least an outline of their project in hand before things get started. A plan helps keeps jobs on track and allows all parties to review and discuss the projects total scope as well as the steps involved.
After selecting a company and verifying their licenses, insurance, and bond status, it’s still necessary to draw up a contract that discusses the details of the project, the costs, payment dates, etc.
Once the project begins, it’s important to check in on a regular basis to ensure everything is going as expected. If a payment schedule was included in the contract, the homeowner should also stay up-to-date on their payments to the contractor.
