As we’ve mentioned frequently on this blog before, residential demolition turns your home into a job site. Because of this, it’s important that you know a few things about residential demolition before the contractors show up at your house…

It’ll be loud.

To put it bluntly, residential demolition jobs are loud and messy! Fortunately, most of them only take a couple of hours to a couple of days to complete. Still, you might want to consider giving your neighbors a heads up or scheduling the job during hours they’re likely to be at work.

Make arrangements for pets.

Pets are especially sensitive to sound, so you may need to make other arrangements for them during your job. If you decide to keep them in the home, however, make sure they’re secured in a room. Demolition contractors can inadvertently scare dogs to which dogs often respond aggressively. It’s simply easier for us and less stressful for your pets, if they’re not around the site.

Don’t come to us.

This one is a major safety concern. While your contractor is working on your home, your home is a job site. Don’t ever approach your contractor with questions while he’s working. It could be dangerous. Instead, call him over to you.

We can’t do anything with asbestos.

Nothing shuts down a demolition job faster than finding asbestos. As a demolition contractor, we’ll check the site for asbestos before we begin demolishing it, but if we find any, we can’t continue. You’ll need the services of a certified asbestos abatement contractor first.

We know what we’re talking about.

As an Austin demolition company that’s been in business over a decade, we’re handled more demolition jobs than we can even count and there’s a reason we advise homeowners to not attempt a DIY demolition job. Selective residential demolition jobs require quite a bit of experience. Because of this, you should carefully consider any suggestions your demolition contractor may make.

And as always, if you need an Austin demolition contractor, you can find Dirty Work on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
