What Affects the Cost to Demolish a House?

Several factors will affect the demolition and deconstruction costs, including location, whether it’s a partial or complete teardown, outbuilding demolition, and dump fees. Demolition professionals remove the house from your property, as well as any trace of an existing structure, foundation removal (if needed), and partial or interior demolition to prepare a space for remodeling. Here are a few factors that will also affect the cost of your project:


The location of the house will affect the cost of demolition services, due to labor costs, potential road closures, and permit requirements. 

Interior Or Partial Demo 

If you would like a room or an entire house stripped down to the drywall, it will increase the cost of your overall project. If you prefer to retain part of a structure, such as the foundation or part of the framework for your home, this will also be an additional cost.

Outbuilding Demolition Cost

Removing a smaller structure on a property, such as a garage, shed, or trailer, generally costs less than a home demolition. Costs vary depending on the weight of the structure, materials, and accessibility. 

Dump Fees

Most demolition companies roll the estimated dump fees and debris removal costs into the total project quote.

Asbestos & Lead Testing

Depending on location in the country and what year a house was built, local regulations may require testing for hazardous materials, such as asbestos or lead paint prior to demolition projects. These tests will increase the overall demo fees, as well.
