Whether you just bought a home to flip and resell, or are planning on building your dream custom home from scratch, the house demolition Vancouver process is something you’ll have to go through.
Find the Right Contractor
Finding a licensed, qualified, insured and experienced demolition contractor can help you choose the best way to demolish your house. They will meet with you to assess the site and go over the entire step-by-step process.
Now it’s time to choose what type of demolition will suit you best. Mechanical demolition is the most popular and common type, which uses heavy machinery to demolish the structure. The debris is then hauled away with trailers. This is the most cost-effective option.
Demolition By Hand
Demolition by hand is also known as deconstruction and although it’s more costly, it’s the best way to recycle and reuse your home’s building materials. You can save up to 70% of your home’s building materials with deconstruction. Things like doors, windows, lumber and other materials can all be salvaged.
Mechanical & By-Hand Combined
Combining both gives you the best results. The demolition crew will first go over the home by hand and salvage whatever materials they can, after which the mechanical demolition can begin and quickly demolish the structure. This is an environmentally responsible, efficient and affordable option.
House Inspection & Permits
Before everything can begin, it’s important to have your home inspected by a professional. This inspection looks for asbestos, lead paint, rotting wood, mold and other hazardous materials that could pose risk or need to be properly removed before demolition can begin legally. Luckily, BC Green is a demolition and asbestos removal company for which we provide turn-key services for.
