Why demolition contractor services?
Property owners are often faced with property problems such as weak foundations and rather than leaving it in a dangerous state or letting the property go to waste it can be demolished and replaced with a new one which can help increase its market value if the plan is to sell it, but demolition isn’t something that can be taken lightly and It is essential that a process is strictly adhered to in order to keep everyone safe and to make sure the land and area are kept in the correct condition.
Although demolishing a building may often look like a simple task, it really isn’t and there is a lot of work to be done and carried out before a brick is touched. Let’s have a look at 9 different demolition services.
1. Pre Demolition Requirements
The local authority will put together a number of specific pre-demolition requirements, things which will often include protecting the adjacent buildings, shoring, collapse or water damage, disposal of debris, and numerous safety measures.
2. Demolition Survey
3. Soft Strip Demolition Contractor Services
Soft strip demolition service involves the removal of “soft” materials, wood, ceilings, such as drywall, carpets, door frames and doors, bathroom fixtures, tiles, and light fittings, etc.
A good example of soft Demolition Contractor Services is the strip-out of a commercial building to prepare for a renovation or repurposing project. One major challenge faced with old buildings is that some are plagued by faulty electronics, out of date policies, and dangerous fixtures
4. Manual Demolition Contractor Services
5. Selective Demolition
6. Explosive Demolition
Explosive demolition contractor services are a cost-effective way of efficiently demolishing high-rise industrial structures and buildings. Before any demolition is done a number of surveys and procedures are necessary to ensure third-party safety and an engineer may use CAD to model the building or structure enabling them to see the collapse. Any areas or local properties that could be affected by the controlled demolition is also determined.
7. Dismantling and Deconstruction
8. Asbestos Removal
Only asbestos removal specialists should remove and dispose of asbestos. Removal specialists will follow strict regulations to safely handle asbestos helping to best prevent asbestos exposure. Asbestos became popular in the UK following the industrial revolution and popularity peaked around the 50s and 70s as the public started to learn about the health hazards Asbestos posed. In 1985 the UK prevented some asbestos use, and by 1999 it was completely banned.

There is a whole host of Demolition Contractor Services machinery available from excavators and bulldozers to high reach grab demolition machinery and an assortment of fittings and attachments to go with them, each designed to do a specific job or carry out a range of specific tasks to help make demolishing buildings easier and more straightforward.
