Debunking Demolition Myths: Industry news

Over the years, demolition techniques and processes have massively improved - ensuring that each project is done in a manner that is mindful of the available resources and the environmental impact that each project has. However, there are still various misconceptions and myths regarding the demolition industry. In an attempt to clear some of the dust, we’ve compiled a list of the top three myths about demolition services.

What is demolition?

Most people believe that demolition is all about blowing up buildings. In reality, demolition plays a much more important role in preserving cities and historical buildings. Expert demolition companies help restore buildings and properties by removing harmful materials and implementing cost-effective and sustainable upgrades to ensure that each project and site utilizes every resource available. The Demolition Process includes deconstruction, removal, recycling and repurposing of buildings and their components to make room for redevelopment.

Myth 1: Demolition is bad for the environment

There is a common misconception that demolition services do more harm than good when it comes to the environment. This is far from the truth. Modern-day demolitions remove various toxins from older buildings and need to follow strict regulations to ensure that everything they do is intentional, not wasteful and doesn’t harm the environment.

Myth 2: Demolition is expensive

Many clients are hesitant to contact demolition companies, as they believe that it will be outside of their budget. However, it’s important to note that in most cases, demolition is the more sustainable and affordable option when it comes to construction. Commercial demolition generally costs less than 2% of the replacement cost of the building.

Myth 3: Demolition techniques don’t change

With technology improving and industrial shifts happening regularly, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve.
