What to Look For In Demolition Companies

Sadly, it can actually be a rather difficult task to come up with a complete understanding of exactly what you should be looking for when it comes to a demolition company. Thankfully, it does not have to be this way. We know what trouble it can be trying to find the perfect demolition team for your specific task, so we have helped come up with a helpful guide of what to look for when looking into demolition companies. 

Questions You Should Be Asking

In order to make sure you get the best experience with your demolition, you have to make sure you are asking the right questions right from the get-go. Here are a few of the top questions you should be asking any demolition company before you start your demo project. 

Is a Full Demolition The Best Solution?

One of the best places to start with your demolition questions is knowing if a full demo is the best approach to your current situation. What can be done in order to service your specific needs, current space, and – most importantly – your budget. This question will not only give you options for what you can do, but will also help show you the level of knowledge, experience, and creativity the demolition company has. 

What are the company’s safety measures? It should go without even saying, but demolition jobs can be hazardous, so the company should be putting safety first and be able to walk you through their protocols.

What is done with debris/clean up? Being left with a half-done job on your hands is one of the worst feelings. So, it is important that you address what the demolition company plans on doing with the debris left behind from the project. Some companies like to pretend that clean up is not part of the job, and this can end up costing you. 

What is the process for hazardous debris? While it may not be a situation that comes up during every job, any reputable demo company will be equipped to deal with hazardous waste, so they should be able to offer you an explanation. You should not need to hire a whole new team to come and take care of a pile of debris sitting on your property. 

What is the process for permits? To be frank, any good demolition company should answer any questions about permits with a solid “we will take care of it.” It is important to make sure the company you are working with is fully aware of all of the local laws and regulations before they start the project, otherwise, you could be on the line for some fairly strict and hefty fines. 

Signs You Should Avoid a Company

The number one thing you can look for in a demolition company that you will want to avoid is a lack of care. Whether it is lack of attention to detail, or a lack of quality answers to your inquiries, this type of detail can directly translate to a lack of ability and attention to detail in the field. Whether it be with safety regulations, permits, or local laws, you do not want someone working on your site that will not be meticulous in their attention to detail. 

One of the other things you should look for or ask about upfront when dealing with a potential demolition company for your job is their pricing. Whether it is a free quote or details about their different pricing methods, this can tell you a lot about the company before you jump into bed with them. 

The number one thing, however, is making sure that the company you are talking with has a plan. This is so vital but is also so simple it can be overlooked. Working with a company that does not have a full plan is a no-no. That means working with a company that has a plan for dealing with hazardous waste, cleaning up, getting permits, and organizing the job so that you are not left with massive headaches and work to do.
