Some people joke that Winnipeg has four seasons – almost winter, winter, still winter, and construction, but we think that the fourth season in Winnipeg is actually demolition. Summer demolition to be exact.
All jokes aside, when the summer months roll around, professional and DIY demolitions become pretty common. It’s the best time of year to clean up and haul out the junk you no longer want or need. If the construction of a new garage is also in the cards then so be it!
Demolitions require an overwhelming amount of knowledge to pull off properly, but if you’ve got the basics down, you can let the professionals fill in the blanks.
Frequent summer demolitions
A typical summer residential demolition has everything to do with the outside, but it’s a wonderful time to focus on home interiors as well. Garages, decks, fences, and sheds are all on the list of popular possible demolish and replace projects.
Knowing what is required beforehand, such as tools, permits and how complex your demolition will be, can help the process run smoothly. If you choose the right company, they will let you in on everything that’s involved, but it doesn’t hurt to do a little research beforehand!
The costs of summer demolition
The costs for a professional to take on your summer demolition will vary from job to job. The company you choose will give you an estimate depending on what you need to be done. Is it just a demolition, or will they be hauling the junk out as well?
For the demolition itself, most professional companies charge either by square foot or the project as a whole. As for the removal of debris, this service depends on the labour as well as the volume of debris you need to be hauled out. Some companies don’t include hauling the materials away after demolition, so buyer beware.
The tools for the job
If you’re trying to decide whether or not to take on a demolition yourself, you’ll find that you probably don’t have the right tools, no matter what the job may be. Removing a fence for example, whether wood, vinyl, or chain link can be pretty dangerous. You’ll not only have to dig around the concrete holding the posts in the ground, but you’ll need a bumper jack and heavy chain to pull it out of the ground.
How we price demolition jobs
When our team shows up to your property to deliver an estimate, we show you the pricing for the project as a whole. Our expert team will give you a breakdown of what the price consists of. You’ll have a concise and clear picture of the costs, and what’s included, before we leave.

We offer a full-service, one-stop shop approach to any job we estimate. If you want to do some of the work yourself, we remove that service from the estimated cost.
As well, not all demolition companies offer hazardous material disposal services.
