So, you’ve bought a plot of land in a dream location at a dream price but there’s only one thing that stands in your way, an existing building on the plot, who do you call for help? There are many people you can call in to have a go at it, but this is certainly something that should not be attempted by non-professionals. If your plot is located in the East Midlands, there are Derby building demolition companies who can carefully demolish the building and dispose of the waste responsibly. Buildings constructed before the year 2000 might contain asbestos so you shouldn’t attempt to disturb or remove one piece of the existing building unless it has been checked by a professional.
Things to Look for in a Demolition Company
There are several things you need to check before you engage the services of any one demolition company, they should possess the following qualities/experience/accreditations below as a bare minimum:
- Qualified Team of Experts
- Stringent Health and Safety Policy
- Responsible Waste Management
- Dangerous Materials Handling Experience
Making sure the company you contract possess all of the above should go some way in ensuring they are the right people to carry out your demolition project, but it may be prudent to check online review sites and local business directories to see what previous customers have said about their work. They should also have a clear complaints procedure in the rare event you are not happy with the work carried out.
