So, you just purchased yourself a lovely fixer upper or perhaps that old barn sitting on your lot is just one good, gusty blast of wind away from collapsing. Maybe you are thinking about grabbing yourself a sledgehammer and knocking out the old eyesore on one of your free afternoons. Knock down some walls, let the adrenaline run free for a while. Can’t be any easier than that, can it? This devil-may-care attitude while well-meant will probably do little more than lead to disappointment and a headache.
Taking on a demolition project by yourself is highly unrecommended. It can be very dangerous and while you might think it’ll save you a few bucks, it will more times than not cost you more money. Then there is always the clean up afterwards which can be even more tedious than the actual demolition. Opting to go with a contractor will grant you the peace of mind that comes along with knowing that someone else is handling the hard labor and clean up afterwards; leaving you with little more than a clear and simple, blank slate to start your next project on.
Having a demolition contractor do the work for you is without question the safer route to go. A demolition contractor has the knowledge and foresight needed to safely level a structure to the ground. Whereas if you rush in by yourself to the project you might find yourself hitting the wrong thing at the wrong time. Then you may find yourself causing bodily harm to yourself or neighboring structures (which is more money coming out of your pocket).
