When hiring a demolition contractor for a job within your home or business, you want to ensure that you choose a reputable company. The best way to hire a qualified demolition company is to do your homework. Find demolition contractors in your area and ask a few questions to get to know the services they provide as well as if they are fully qualified to do the job right the first time. Below are a few questions you should ask any demolition contractor before hiring them.
Do you have liability insurance & are you covered by WCB?
This is very important. You want to ensure the company you are working with holds a current liability insurance policy. Check with the Workers Compensation Board to ensure they are currently covered and their policy has not expired. If the demolition company is not insured and one of their workers is injured on your property it may involve legal ramifications.
What does your quote include?
When receiving a quote from a demolition contractor, be sure to clarify with them what work is included in the quote. If the quote sounds too good to be true then it most likely is. Think about the overall scope of your project and ensure all elements of the demolition
(assessment, demolition, clean-up, and disposal) are discussed and accounted for.
Who is responsible for the demolition permit?
A seasoned demolition contractor will know who is responsible for acquiring any demolition permits and how to go about obtaining them. You want to be sure all local requirements are met exactly how they should be for your project to be legal and completed correctly.
What will the time frame for completion be?
The contractor should be able to provide you with a timeline for completion of the project. While there can be delays, they should be able to give you a rough estimate, so you know when your project will be finished and the demolition complete.
When can you start?
This is an important question that should be discussed early on. Some companies are backed up with projects, and they may not be able to help you quickly. Find out a timeline for when the company can start your project, so you know when to expect service.
