Depending on the scope of the work, interior demolition jobs may demolish everything except the “shell” of the building, particular floors within a structure, or specific rooms.
Most interior demolition work is highly targeted and specific in terms of what goes and what stays – but when an entire building needs to be gutted, this is less the case.
Generally, speaking, interior demolition work involves removing the following features but this is dependent on the specific requests of the homeowner:
- Non-load-bearing walls
- Stud walls
- Concrete or marble slabs
- Flooring including carpeting
- Insulating materials
- Electrical wiring and conduit
- Ceiling tiles or boards
- Selected service utilities
What happens to all the debris?
With most interior demolition projects, considerable amounts of debris and dirt are generated and need to be disposed of. This should all be considered part of the clean-up process after the demolition work is complete.
Our team will ensure that all debris is removed off-site and away from your property before we consider the job complete.
Depending on the scope of the project, we can cart the debris away in skips or entire containers. These are often large enough for homeowners to dispose of any other junk that has accumulated in their homes over the years.
Why outsource your interior demolition needs?
Any demolition project comes with substantial risks to homeowners.
First and foremost, there are safety hazards. Not only from the physical dangers of removing heavy materials from a space and the potential for accidents but from the dust it causes and the risk of toxic chemicals being released.
Sometimes, too, the neighbours understandably become upset by the noise levels caused by the use of inappropriate tools or machinery.
For these reasons, interior demolition work is best left to experienced professionals who are licensed, certified, insured and trained for this type of work.
Our interior demolition service is a project-managed service that follows the safety guidelines and looks after the entire demolition project from start to finish.
This includes the following steps:
Every interior demolition project is unique. Each step needs to be planned out to ensure that safety comes first, the homeowner’s family is not unnecessarily disrupted, and the demolition job runs smoothly from start to finish.
This generally requires strategic experience and planning know-how from a professional team.
Once the plan is in place, the preparation work begins to ensure that everyone is safe and the work causes the least disruption possible to daily life.
This involves close communication with the homeowner and family to explain the process in detail and ensure that the crucial elements of the plan are in place and ready to go when work begins.
Depending on the extent of the work and the plan, the work may start with demolishing walls (drywall, stud walls, etc.) and digging out floor trenches. This is usually followed by removing the other contents from the room/floor/structure.
Some interior demolition work may also include mould remediation.
Cleanup and recycling
After the interior demolition work is complete, our team’s job is not finished until we leave your space clean and tidy.
Anything that can be recycled will be recycled and anything else will be disposed of responsibly.
