Whether you intend to tear down a multi-level apartment complex or a dated home, hiring a competent and qualified demolition company is a critical decision to make. While demolition is a dangerous job that requires specialized equipment, there is critical information that every home or business owner should obtain to ensure a proper and professional project outcome. Here are five questions to ask when hiring a demolition company.
1. Do You Have A Business License And Insurance?
Tearing down a house is no small task. It will also require the use of commercial-sized equipment. You should never consider any business that lacks either a business license or insurance as it is an indicator that they will also lack special permits or local ordinance knowledge. The ability to adhere to local and state safety standards and regulations is critical to a successful venture. Moreover, insurance protects both the company and the property owner which gives us both peace of mind.
2. What Is Your Demolition Experience?
When it comes to safety and quality, the experience of a company is a vital component in the hiring phase. You should ask about the length of time as a demolition company as well as how much experience the crew have. You can also ask a company to provide you with information about previous demolition jobs to ensure compatibility.

3. How Do You Dispose Of Hazardous Waste?
Hazardous waste like asbestos, lead, and mold is often present during demolitions. Before deciding on a company, you should ensure that companies possess the correct equipment to dispose of waste safely.

4. Will An Estimate Include Materials And Labor?
Reputable companies will give you an up-front idea of costs which includes labor and materials. You should discuss contract obligations as well as any reasons that additional costs will increase your estimate. You would not want to wait until a job is done to know that the cost had increased significantly.
5. What Is Your Timeline?
A qualified company will also help you understand the timeline in which services will take place. You should also know what materials or equipment a company has and will use. If you know what to expect, it will ease your mind when the demolition begins.
