as tree protection, survey costs and utility disconnection fees from the City will cost more than the actual
cost to tear down the house. I pay an average of only $3.50 per square foot to tear a house down and it
can happen in one day. Try and donate and recycle as much as possible-not only is it the right thing to do
but you can also get a tax credit. I have torn down many houses in the City and if you wan to see some of
our work just visit forcebuildingcompany.com
You will also want to look into permits and new connection to water and sewer lines that can be an equal amount. Please let me know if I can assist in any way or refer you to a few great builders building homes in Birmingham.
â€¢Demolition of 1000 - 1500 sq. ft. home that does NOT need the basement or foundation removed, has easy access for heavy equipment, and doesn't have any environmental issues, could be achieved for around $4000 - $7000 in a low cost area (ie. parts of the Midwest and South). The same project could be $8000 to $15,000 in a higher cost area, where the costs for debris removal and permits are significantly higher
â€¢Complete demolition of a 2000 sq. ft. home including removal of the basement and foundation, with good access for heavy equipment, and no asbestos or lead paint requirements, may cost between $9000 - $22000 depending on local debris removal rates, permit fees, and the demolition contractor selected.
