Demolition

iStock_000006652484XSmallAt WCS we provide Demolition services for small buildings, such as houses or separate garages, that are one, two or three stories high.

There are a few steps to take into consideration before any demolition work is performed;

  1. make sure there is no hazardous material, such as asbestos
  2. disconnect all utilities
  3. obtain all the necessary permits
  4. develop a site specific safety and work plan

After all these steps are met we are ready to start demolition. The excavator will determine the best manner to control the direction in which the building will fall. Once demolition is complete,the material is then sorted and hauled to either a transfer station or recycling depot.

Demolition Help Available

Would you like us to knock down your house? Do you own a small building that you would like to very carefully destroy? We can help ensure that your one, two or three story property is carefully and completely demolished and the debris gets removed promptly  There’s a few basic things you should know when looking to have a property knocked down. I’m sure you know this information but it is always important to review no matter how many times you’ve demolished your own property. You want to start by making sure there’s no hazardous waste that could be generated by knocking down the building.

<p”>Depending on how old your property is it could have asbestos. When an old property with asbestos gets knocked down, this could mean trouble. Nobody wants to be breathing that stuff and when it gets agitated it is more likely to be travelling in the air. You want to be careful. We have great ways to ensure that asbestos is either removed prior to the demolition or systematically removed as the building gets taken down.

Another very important step that can easily be overlooked, but it is really important is disconnecting you utilities. You must must disconnect all of the utilities. Make sure they are off. The last thing you want is your water or electricity still on during a demo. This is a recipe for disaster if you do not disconnect everything.

Lastly, you can’t knock down property or do any demolition in the city without the city knowing. What this means is that you have to get up early and get a city permit. City permits can sometimes take a long time or we can help and they will take a lot less time. If you want more information on obtaining a city permit for the purpose of demolition.
