Austin demolition Hiring a demolition contractor for a residential job soon? Make sure to ask these five questions before you let them in…

Are you insured?

Never, under any circumstances, hire a demolition contractor that doesn’t have insurance. If they make a mistake, you’ll be on the financial hook for the damages.

Do you recycle?

Demolition produces a lot of waste. Make sure to ask any company you’re planning on hiring if they will recycle it. Since recycling is more expensive than simply delivering the waste to a landfill, you can’t just assume they will.

Are licenses required in your state? Do you have a license?

Not all states require demolition contractors to have a license. Check to see if you’re state does require a license before you begin searching for a contractor and then immediately disqualify any contractor who doesn’t have the appropriate licenses.

What exactly does your quote include?

Most demolition contractors will give you a free custom quote, but you need to make sure to ask exactly what that quote entails. For example, does that quote include the cost of the contractor hauling away the waste? Does it include the cost of the contractor recycling that waste?

Do you have referrals or can I go online and see your reviews?

Ideally, you would have a friend or family member who could refer you to a great demolition contractor that they used, but if you don’t, online reviews are a good substitute. When talking to a contractor you’re considering hiring, ask them what their Angie’s List reviews are. If they’re great, they’ll be proud to share. If not, better safe than sorry!

And as always, if you have any more questions you need answered or if you’re in need of Austin-area demolition, you can find Austin demolition contractor Dirty Work on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
