Demolition for Residential Projects
There is no one-size-fits-all method for demolition. Demolition methods employed at Elder include:
- Mechanical demolition: Mechanical demolition is the most popular building demolition 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 demolition method that maximizes the quantity and quality of salvaged building components so clients can reuse, recycle or sell them.
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 demolition 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:
