What needs to be done before any demolition takes place?


Whether demolishing all or part of a building, it's vitally important that the property owner has contacted in advance the gas, water, cable and electric companies to disconnect their services - not just at the house - but all the way out to the street. Be specific with the gas company that they need to shut off their service down in the ground by the street. This will avoid liability down the road.

Once demolition begins, neither the property owner or anyone else is allowed on the site due to the possibility of injury. Anything you want preserved needs to be removed before the equipment comes on site.
