Residential Demolition Services Edmonton

Demolition services exist to help you bring your construction ideas to life. Whether you want to renew your home’s aesthetic or rebuild altogether, you’ll need to carry out demolition first.

Just like primary construction, demolition is also an elaborate process that requires thorough planning and compliance with safety guidelines.

Here’s all you need to know about the process:

Preliminaries

Before your demolition service gets on with business, make sure you’ve spoken to all utility companies and have had their services disconnected.

Inspection

A professional, certified service will always start the process by thoroughly inspecting the house. The purpose of this is to remove harmful substances like lead paint, dust that may contain lead, harmful chemicals, and asbestos. 

Asbestos, in particular, needs to be handled professionally, since there are industry standard safety rules for handling it. These rules vary based on the state.

Even if there’s minimal asbestos exposure, the resulting hazards can be devastating.

Demolition Projects Edmonton

Demolition type

Since demolition is an important prerequisite for property construction, it has to be done right. Demolition projects are unique, and each one has to be planned out differently.

If you’re opting for complete demolition, the service will remove the entire house from the site within one or two days.

However, if you’re getting the house remodeled, certain portions will need to be demolished. This will take up more time, will mandate more caution, as well as careful execution.

Make sure you’ve made your demolishing objectives very clear to the company.

Debris

Waste management is also an important aspect of demolishing. Once the process is over, you’ll find the area covered by a huge amount of debris. Leaving this rubble unattended isn’t the most ethical thing to do.

So make sure you speak to the contractor and inquire about how the company handles the excess debris. It’s both the client’s and the service’s civic responsibility to make sure the neighbourhood remains clean.
