In this blog, we will explore how you can prepare your home for demolition. So, without further ado, let’s get started.

Home Inspection

Your demolition contractor will likely recommend this, but it is crucial that you conduct a home inspection to discover whether your home is suitable for the demolition work. For example, a home inspection can identify whether asbestos is present in various materials of your home – if so, then the asbestos must first be removed before your home can be demolished. Asbestos removal is key to preventing asbestos fibres from being released into the atmosphere during the demolition process.

Letting Your Neighbours Know

It is important to notify your neighbours (and relevant authorities) that you plan on getting demolition work done to your home. After all, the demolition will likely disrupt the neighbourhood for a while, which can be frustrating to deal with – especially if neighbours work from home or have pets who might be anxious about the loud noises.

Disconnect Utilities

Before the demolition, you should ensure that you disconnect all services and utilities, such as gas, water, electricity. This can significantly reduce the likelihood of any injuries or accidents, eliminating potential hazards.

Post-Demolition Plan

It would be a good idea to have a plan in place for after the demolition is complete. This ensures that you and your contractor are on the same page and that they are aware of your goal. This will help them effectively meet your needs and expectations.
