Do you have your residential demolition scheduled and not sure what to do next? You may not think there’s a whole lot to prepare for when it comes to demo. However, there are a few steps to take to make the process go smoother. Here’s how to prepare for your residential demolition.
- Inspection – No matter the extent of your demolition needs, you should consider having your home inspected before the demolition begins. A home inspection will indicate if you have any underlying issues that may otherwise slow down the demolition process.
- Storage Arrangements – Storing away your items sounds like an obvious task but can actually take a great deal of time. Depending on your demo, you might need a storage unit or to find other living arrangements while demolition and construction is taking place.
- Coordinate with Utility Company – It’s important to coordinate with your utility company to ensure that your demolition won’t affect any community shared lines before beginning excavation.
- Notify Neighbors – Demolition can take long hours and very loud. Consider contacting your surrounding neighbors ahead of time and notify them as a courtesy that it will be noisy for the next few days.
