In some cases, when you plan a new build on your property, there might already an existing building there. You’ll need to demolish and remove the old structure before beginning a new project. For this, you’ll contract a demolition crew for the job.

Whether you’re demolishing a separate garage, a home, or a commercial building, a demolition crew will evaluate the size of the structure, how it’s built, and what it’s made of to determine how best to bring it down. In some cases, they might use explosives to implode it or a high-reach arm to break up the building. In other cases, a wrecking ball might make the most sense when demolishing a building.
