Frequently Asked

^

What happens to the mulched material?

This is left up to our customers. We absolutely can haul it off- or we can let it decompose. It depends on your needs.

Bulldozer versus mulching?

 Bulldozing disturbs the ground. Bulldozers work by knocking over or pulling  trees and brush completely up out of the ground and usually requires permitting. For disposal, the piled debris must be raked up and sorted. The pile must be left to dry and then burned, with left over debris requiring haul-off. Mulching mulches close to the ground and the mulch can be left or removed based on your needs.

Do I Need Demolition Services If I Don’t Want My Building Destroyed?

 Demolition is a much more varied process than just the implosion of buildings. Many demolition projects include interior demolition, which is a process where the inside of a building is emptied out and prepared for projects like upgrades and renovation. A demolition project may also require selective structure demolition, an example of which might be the removal of a wall or a room from a larger structure.

Do I Need a Retaining Wall?

Aside from improving the visual aesthetics of your yard or property, retaining walls can provide several purposes. The purpose is to hold back, or retain, soil and that’s most commonly done to either address water runoff or provide usable land. It can also be used for preventing soil erosion.

How Do I Prepare for An Excavation Contractor?

Do what you can to make the area accessible as possible. If that’s a challenge, make sure you let the excavating team know ahead of time what obstacles they may face.  You should also move anything on the property that will be in the way, if possible.

What Happens to the Building Materials During Demolition?

Most of the building items on a demolition project are reused, recycled, or salvaged. Frequent items that may be reused or recycled in some way include flooring, carpets, plasterboard, wood, roofing materials, ceiling tiles, and insulation material. It’s even possible to save or salvage materials like concrete, brick, and porcelain, as well as soil.

What are the different types of demolition?

Each demolition job is unique, but there are certain subsets that most will fit into. For example, interior demolition jobs refer to those where the whole structure isn’t being torn down, but rather some interior walls and spaces inside. This type of demolition is common in reconstructions or upgrading of a structure. Industrial demolition describes jobs involving structures and facilities that produce goods. Chemical plants, oil refineries or manufacturing facilities would all fall under industrial manufacturing. These jobs require working with hazardous materials and environmental redress. They’re also usually more complicated jobs that require particular rigging and safety training. Commercial demolition is the more typical dismantling of commercial properties like office buildings, hotels, shopping malls or stores.

Do I Need Deconstruction or Demolition?

 Deconstruction is a type of demolition that’s usually a more extreme process designed to preserve as much as possible in recycled and reusable materials from the deconstruction process. While conventional demolition projects often save more than 90 percent of materials removed from a site, deconstruction is often performed by hand while demolition often employs more machinery.
