Q: It is okay to start a residential demolition project myself?
A: There may come a time in a homeowner’s life when he or she wants to completely take down an old shed or remodel a section of the house. While home projects may seem easy enough on tv shows, these people are professionals who have the knowledge to do such projects with safety and efficiency. A homeowner who starts such a project may soon realize they made a huge mistake or risk serious injuries due to not taking proper precautions. This is where our residential demolition services in Los Angeles can help you.
Q: Is it safe to live in my home while a home project is going on?
A: Many people temporarily live in another place until the home project is complete. Every day for hours, those who live in the home may have to deal with constant noise and dust. Some people are more sensitive to particles in the air than others, so depending on the needs of you and your family, staying elsewhere may be preferred.
Q: Is it possible to be environmentally conscious when doing demolition?
A: Yes, there are certain strategies and companies that offer demolition services that can help make your home project more environmentally conscious, us included. The process may take a bit longer if you recycle certain materials along the way, but it can pay you back in the end if you can sell them for money.
Q: What is the biggest threat to safety in demolition projects?
A: Asbestos used to be a very popular product commonly used in building materials and other items due to being resistant to chemical corrosion, electricity, and high temperatures. The harmful effects of asbestos exposure have become observed in more recent years. If a person were to start a demolition project without an inspection first, asbestos may be unknowingly disturbed, exposed, and then absorbed through inhalation or ingestion. Asbestos fibers are microscopic, so a person may not even realize when this material has been released.
Q: Is it wise to tell my neighbors about the renovation?
A: Whether you are ripping down an entire building or only renovating a small section of your home, it may be a good idea to let your neighbors know beforehand. The majority of us have to live next to someone, and the constant noise can become quickly irritating. Not only that, but your neighbors may eventually complain and put you at risk for having to halt or slow down the project. If you can appease your neighbors along the way, it can save you from encountering roadblocks.
Get Help with Your Project
When you have a residential demolition project, the first decision to make is always whether you want to do it yourself or hire a professional. Especially when more and more people are staying at home, taking on a house project may seem like a good way to pass time; plus, it is great to learn a new hobby. However, if you have not undergone training in demolition and you do not have the right tools and licensing for the job, taking on a residential demolition project on your own may not be the best idea. There are so many factors that go into it, leave it up to us. We’ll make sure the job gets done right.
Q: Will you need to pull permits for this type of job?
A: Depending on the type of demolition job, you can almost always expect we will need to pull a permit. Luckily for you, that will be up to us to do. Especially if you are hoping to demo an entire house, your local government rules will have specific requirements. Because we work in commercial and residential demolition in California, we know what permits will need to be pulled and where to go to get the “okay” for the job.
Q: I have a concern about asbestos or other hazardous materials. What will you do about this?
A: Depending on how old your home is, we may be legally required to conduct an inspection to see if there is asbestos present or to see if there are other hazardous materials. Many older homes still contain asbestos and this is something we take very seriously. Please know that when hazardous materials are found, we will follow all guidelines and proper procedures to get this removed safely before we begin demolition work.
Q: What is the difference between deconstruction and demolition?
A: When a residence is demolished, the company is not trying to salvage any parts to keep and recycle. When a residence is deconstructed, the workers try to salvage as much as they can to recycle.
