House Demolition

On the surface, house demolition may appear easy. The demolition crew just comes at it with a bulldozer and an excavator, and the house crumbles. In reality, it is more complicated than that. Safe and efficient house demolition requires precise planning.

Types of House Demolition

There are two types of house demolition. Many projects include a combination of both, especially if hazardous or recyclable materials are present.


Deconstruction involves taking the house apart piece by piece manually, starting from the roof and working down. This type of demolition is used when a large percentage of the structure can be salvaged and reused.


Mechanical demolition involves the use of heavy-duty mechanical equipment. This type of demolition is used when there’s nothing to salvage and the structure is in complete disrepair. However, if the structure contains any hazardous material, this must be addressed before mechanical demolition can begin.

When to Consider House Demolition

Not sure if demolition is the right choice for you? There are situations where demolition can be beneficial. If any of these sound familiar, then it’s time to consider house demolition.


Over time, foundations can become weak and brittle. When this happens, your house is no longer on solid ground. Floors sag, walls shift, and everything is out of level. Minor foundation issues may be able to be repaired. However, in many cases, renovation is neither affordable nor effective. House demolition is the best choice.


Older homes were often built with materials and utilities that don’t meet today’s standards. The plumbing and electrical systems may be faulty or insufficient. Hazardous material such as asbestos, lead paint, or lead pipes may be present. It is more efficient and cost-effective to demolish the house rather than renovate it.


When planning to sell your home, you want to get the best price possible. If the structure is old and in need of major repairs, not only will it receive a lower sale price, but it may also discourage potential buyers from even putting in a bid. In this situation, house demolition is the best choice, leaving you with multiple options for moving forward.You could sell the property as a vacant lot which would bring in a higher price than trying to sell it with an old, decrepit house sitting on it. Or you can demolish the existing structure and build a brand new one. A move-in-ready property that will command a much higher selling price. Or you may decide you no longer want to sell.

The Demolition Process

At Crest Construction Group, every house demolition starts with a consultation. We evaluate the structure to determine the best way to proceed based on your plans for the property. We then provide you with a quote for the demolition. Before the demolition begins, we will obtain the necessary permits, make sure the utilities are disconnected, and arrange for any pre-demolition inspections required by local municipal authorities. We will walk you through every step of the process.

Our team pays strict attention to every detail to ensure a safe and efficient demolition. Once any hazardous, recyclable, or salvaged materials have been removed, we will use our equipment and expertise to execute a successful demolition. Once the demolition is complete, we will load the rubble into dumpsters, haul it away, and take care of any necessary groundwork.
