Demolition: Tips for Rebuilding Your Home

Have you started out-growing your house but don’t want to move?  Location is everything when it comes to realty.  If you love your neighbors, the neighborhood, and the location and proximity to your favorite places, perhaps you should consider remodeling or rebuilding your home.

Every one of us invested a lot of time, effort, and money into our home.  We chose it for a reason, therefore, when we have exceeded the limits of the home, it is hard to let go.  At ABH Services, we can help.  Maybe you need to remodel your kitchen to accommodate a growing family, or you need to renovate an old bathroom to a more modern look.  Perhaps you want to raze the building to the ground and start from the basement up.  No matter what size of project you have in mind, we have the tools and skills to see the job through.

If you are demolishing the entire house and starting from scratch, here are a few tips to keep in mind before starting.

  • Schedule a pre-demolition house inspection. Inspectors will look for hazardous construction materials that need to be handled, removed, and disposed of with care.
  • Apply for the permits you need with the city.
  • Call your utility companies to disconnect your services. Gas, water, electric, and sewage utilities need to be shut off before work can begin.
  • Understand local laws in regards to noise, working hours, and disposal of materials.
  • Work with your demolition contractor to determine if any material will or can be reused or recycled.
  • Consider erecting temporary fencing to keep nosey neighbors out and kids safe. Local laws may require safety precautions for the property and you’ll be protecting your liability.
