House Demolition FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right house demolition services for your job

1. What is house demolition?

House demolition is the relatively straightforward task of bringing down a building or structure for expansion, aesthetics, or building-from-scratch purposes. While it is an uncomplicated process, it gets intimidating due to the various factors involved in demolishing a structure. Demolishing a house is more than merely calling in an excavator and bringing down the roof over the ground. There are many different steps and methods of house demolition including:

Selective demolition The homeowner may decide to tear down a portion of the property, say a wall or two, instead of the entire structure. There will be no compromise to the building’s integrity, and it can get enhanced with additional pillars as needed. Selective demolition is an option reserved for aesthetic and expansion purposes without affecting the exterior of the property. It is a labor-extensive procedure that does not demand the use of heavy machinery.

Complete demolition As the name suggests, the entire building or structure gets stripped to the ground with heavy-duty equipment like excavators and dump trucks. It is the fastest option of demolition and the cheapest when compared to selective or manual demolition. The house demolition cost is an amalgamation of labor, machinery utilised, site assessment, and other side services.

Manual deconstruction Manual deconstruction is a sustainable demolition process that substantially reduces the demolition waste. In this method, the property gets stripped manually, by hand, of its salvageable materials like doors, windows, lumber, beams, and more. The salvaged material either gets recycled, sold, or reprocessed for secondary use, all intending to reduce general construction/demolition waste.

 

2. What does house demolition cost?

The total estimate of house demolition depends on several variables that considerably affect the price tag. In Australia, the prices differ from region to region, but the average house demolition cost ranges from $12,000 to $30,000.

House demolition contractors incorporate the square meter of the land size to estimate the work required on-site. The larger the ground size, the higher the compensation required for labor, equipment and time. Demolition for houses made of wood and timber cost less than houses made from concrete variations. Furthermore, removal of the foundations and excavating them factor into the total cost.

Where your site is located, i.e how accessible your site is and how far from the disposal grounds it is, also influences the expenditure on house demolition. Moreover, the removal of hazardous materials like mineral fibers, asbestos, or moldy materials, increases the general house demolition cost.

 

3. What to do before house demolition?

There are a few necessary steps to complete before a house demolition begins. Firstly, have a professional inspect your house for the presence of hazardous materials and other specifications.

You’ll then need to get the correct permits required to carry out the demolition in your neighborhood. Refer to the local council or the Government’s official website for more information regarding the local regulations and guidelines.

The next step is to disconnect existing services like electricity, gas lines, water connections, and sewage lines. You’ll then put up fences and tarps to protect the neighboring buildings and walkways, keeping them safe from the demolition debris. Finally, arrange pre-demolition for waste disposal or salvageable material take-away.

 

4. How long does house demolition take?

Never underestimate the time required for house demolition. It depends on several active factors before, during, and after the structure demolition. Though the building may get brought down within a few days, removal of the waste material takes up quite a bit of time. A minimum period of two months gets appointed to accomplish a successful house demolition.
