Factors that affect demolition costs

  • Hidden support beams

When demolition experts come to inspect your property, they might discover unseen load-bearing beams which can alter the type of demolition technique used. And this can affect the price of the demolition.

  • Site access and property size

A building that’s in a difficult-to-reach place or in a confined area will cost more to destroy than an easily accessible property. Size also factors in when figuring out demolition cost. The bigger the house, or property, the more expensive the demolition costs.

  • Property with asbestos

If asbestos is discovered as part of the structural components used to construct your home, then this will also have a bearing on demolition costs because the asbestos will need to be removed carefully. Asbestos has been classified as a human carcinogen, therefore needs to be handled with care. According to, “Workers must not handle asbestos unless they have been trained and hold a license that is current and appropriate for the type of work being done.”
