What do you need to know about demolition services?
It should go without saying, but demolition is not something that should be attempted as a DIY project! It is a sophisticated and specialist service that requires a great deal of planning, including health and safety, environmental and possibly asbestos surveying. All of these can add up to a high quote, but a specialist tradesman or company will be able to walk you through all the necessary steps the job, as well as help you obtain the necessary legal permissions.
Each demolition project is unique, but the cost of demolishing an average sized house will cost around £7,000. It is crucial that you do a thorough background check on your hire. Do they have a Certificate of Confidence of Demolition Operatives (CCDO)? Are they a part of any tradesman’s organisations? Ask them about the equipment they will be using and the safety precautions they are taking. Ensure that they are adequately insured for their work before making your final hire.
