Demolition for Residential Projects

There is no one-size-fits-all method. Demolition methods employed at Elder include:

  • Mechanical demolition: Mechanical demolition is the most popular building method. It requires the use of specialized equipment and tools, such as high-reach excavators equipped with special attachments. At Elder, we prefer the use of precision machinery because it allows us to maintain more control over the materials we remove, allowing greater opportunities to salvage assets.
  • Deconstruction: Deconstruction is a green method that maximizes the quantity and quality of salvaged building components so clients can reuse, recycle or sell them.

Demolition Planning

The most important aspect of a demolition project is the planning stage. When you work with Elder, we will assess your needs to create a custom plan that maximizes safety and efficiency. Having a thorough plan also helps us determine costs, the equipment needed, amount of debris expected and the project’s timeline.

The building’s location, size, materials and condition, as well as the reason for the project, are all factors we bear in mind when creating a plan. Other considerations include:

Asset Recovery

Asset recovery is an important component of every project. Once we know what assets are on your property, we can provide an estimate of their market value. Elder’s turnkey services includes recovering, reusing, recycling and selling your assets to help offset project costs.

Being a Good Neighbor

The demolition process is noisy, regardless of using best practices. Elder places a high value on keeping the peace. When you work with us, our specialists will give you expert guidance on how to be a good neighbor with suggestions such as:

  • Good communication: Let neighbors know your demolition and construction schedule to help them prepare for the upcoming noise and changes that might happen on your block.
  • Scheduling: While you can’t placate everyone, considering your neighbors’ preferences regarding the best times of day to work on the noisier aspects of your project will make the experience more positive for everyone.
  • Curb appeal: While it’s not always possible to hide eyesores, thoughtful Maryland demolition contractors will do their best to make sure a project doesn’t detract from the neighborhood’s best features.
  • Gratitude: Do more than hang a sign that says, “Pardon our dust.” Dust control is very important on working sites and can be hazardous unless managed expertly. Visit your neighbors in person or send them a card to thank them for their patience. When the project is complete, invite them to an open house to show off the new space. A little gratitude goes a long way.
