Home Demolition: Understanding the Process

When it comes to home demolition, it is important to follow proven practices to ensure that everything runs smoothly and safely. Demolition is a dangerous and complicated endeavour, but by following a step-by-step process, you ensure that everyone gets home safe without causing unnecessary damage to the property. This makes even the biggest jobs easy to handle, as the project is divided down into manageable stages until the entire demolition has concluded. Having a plan in place also avoids the risk of any nasty surprises interfering with the project, as everything has been thought out and planned for in advance.

The House Demolition Process

There are a range of reasons for why you may wish to demolish your home, whether it is because you are looking to build something new or you are planning to sell the empty land. No matter the reason, having a home demolition plan in place helps the project proceed as efficiently as possible. A typical residential demolition process involves the following:

Initial Consultation

When you decide to hire a demolition company to demolish your house, your first meeting will be a consultation where you outline your goals and requirements for the project. From there, we inspect your home and provide a quote for the job based on the scale of the property and the work you are looking to have done. Once you have agreed to our terms, we set about securing the necessary permits, so the house demolition process proceeds with council approval.

Disconnect Utilities

Before any work takes place, it is vital that all utilities have been disconnected and removed from the premises. This includes gas, water, and electricity. This process is undertaken to ensure that no workers accidentally come into contact with any live wires or pipes, resulting in unnecessary damage or harm. Telephone and internet cables are also removed during this process, as we advise you to cancel your utilities with your provider before demolition begins.

Remove Asbestos & Recyclable Materials

We have all heard of the dangers of asbestos, with the material commonly used in house construction in the past. Before work begins, we inspect the site for any traces of the harmful material and safely remove it to avoid putting anyone at risk. We also survey the site for any reusable or recyclable materials, ensuring that nothing valuable is wasted as we salvage it for later use or dispose of it at the proper facility.

Construction Begins

Once everything has been properly organised and the site carefully prepared, the home demolition finally begins. The steps prior to this ensure demolition can take place safely and with minimal disruptions. The length of the demolition varies depending on the size of your property, as well as if you want a full demolition or only a partial demolition of the house. Heavy machinery will be used on the site, so we take care to properly cordon off the area to ensure no one is put in harm’s way.


Once the house demolition process has been completed to your expectations, we clear the site and remove any rubbish or debris that has appeared as a result of the project. This is to ensure you are not left with a mess on your property as we responsibly dispose of the wastage to create an environmentally friendly workplace. If you would like to hold on to any of the leftover materials, this is something to communicate with your contractor at the beginning of the project.
