When you are trying to plan a demolition, the entire process can be both exciting and extremely exhausting. After all, how often can you say that you’re planning on knocking down/destroying a building? Whether you are clearing the land for another build or doing so for a complete remodel, we here at Mondo EX have all the advice you could possibly need in order to plan for a demolition job successfully and meticulously.
Depending on where you are doing a demolition, how you are implementing it and the scale of said demolition, you may need multiple permits in order to do so legally and safely. In general, pretty much every city in Canada will require the necessary documents before anything can be done. It does not matter if you own the land that you are knocking down — a demolition is a messy and potentially dangerous project if it is not sought out by professionals who have the required paperwork. This includes permits to ensure that you can perform your project without any legal issues (this often involves HEAVY fines).
Clear the Site of Any Asbestos
Did you know that asbestos is present within a large majority of home/commercial building materials? Things such as insulation, popcorn ceilings, plaster and floor tiles can contain asbestos and must be taken care of & disposed accordingly before any demolition project begins. If you disturb asbestos during a demolition or otherwise, it can release the fibers within the material and become dangerous when inhaled. Avoid the short & long term damage this substance can do to your body’s health and ensure that all materials containing asbestos are disposed of properly before beginning a demolition.
Notify Your Neighbours
This is one tip that a lot of people may initially overlook. It is easy to get so caught up in a demolition project that you forget the ways in which this major project will affect those around you. This project is not only messy and often time consuming, but also extremely loud depending on where you are in vicinity of the site. Before the project goes underway, notify your neighbours about the noise it will cause and potentially give them a pair of earplugs or two in order to maintain a healthy relationship!
