Getting the best guide and advice breaks down the demolition process, answering any question you may have, and walking you through it step-by-step so that it is streamlined and easy. Getting familiar with the demolition process could save you some major headaches down the line, whether you are demolishing a house, shed, swimming pool, or other structure.
How to know I am with the right contractor?
The first issue you need to worry about is to be sure your contractor has the correct credentials and licenses, either certifications, given by the state of California.
Afterwards, you can also gather reviews from neighbors in your community who have used those contractors, ensuring that each and every review comes from a 100% real customer.
When you finally gather all the information about the contractor you may want to hire, there will be many questions you might want to be answered, such as the kind of permits you will need to carry on with the project, security issues, the type of demolition process needed for this job, and so on… A good contractor must answer every question you have, and provide you with the best advice; as a result, you can be confident that you are hiring the right one.
Do I need a permit for demolition work?
Yes. In the whole state of California, a permit is necessary when constructing, altering, or demolishing any building or structure on private property. Most contractors will obtain permits for you, and they should!
When looking for the right contractor, be sure to ask them about what tasks they will be responsible for, and which ones you will need to take care of yourself.
If you have concerns regarding your project, or would like additional help prior to submitting your plan check, your contractor should be able to help you with the various code requirements, issues specific to your site, or if you are in need of some help navigating through the application process.
Does my contractor need to have a planning process?
Sure, a good contractor plots every step in their planning process, pointing everything we stated above: permits, building inspection, security issues, gear, machinery, and everything required to get your project to the best result. In case that your contractor does not work within a planning process, your bill may increase according to the influence of the following factors, just to mention a few:
- What materials you are demolishing.
- The total square footage of the space you are demolishing.
- The cost of living in your area.
- Ease of access.
- Complexity of the project.
- Presence of asbestos or other hazardous material.
This is why your contractor must be certified and have de right licenses and credentials, to assure that he is capable of complying with all the applicable regulations, and take your project to a complete success.
