Although demolition involves destroying a part of a (or complete) building, it doesn’t come without a price tag. And if you aren’t aware of the factors involved, you might end up paying much more than your estimated budget. Thus, for careful planning, you should read and understand these factors that are used to determine the cost of a demolition project.
- Cost of the Area: This one’s an already established factor. More the area more will be the work, and higher will be the cost. But it’s not only the square foot measurement that matters. In addition to the size, the add-ons permit required, and the clearing cost also adds up. However, the cost may vary depending on the area as wages may vary with state and urban/rural locations.
- Preparing the Site: Preparation is essential before starting the demolition job. Tasks include getting the permits, disconnecting supplies of power, gas, electricity, etc., rerouting pipes and wires, and securing the area to avoid the spread of debris and waste. Proper lighting, equipment, and gear are also included. And with all this, it requires a certain cost to prepare the site for demolition.
- Clearing and Reconstruction: Post-demolition, the debris and waste should be cleared of the site for the reconstruction. Hiring the clearing service and contractors for reconstruction further add to the cost of the project.
