Demolition Services


Demolition is the tearing down of buildings and other structures. It differs from deconstruction, which involves carefully taking a building apart and preserving valuable materials for re-use. Small buildings are usually pulled down  or mechanically, using large hydraulic equipment, elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators, or bulldozers. 

Larger buildings require the use of a wrecking ball. This method is especially effective with masonry.

Newer methods include the use of rotational hydraulic shears and silenced rock-breakers attached to excavators to cut or break through wood, steel, and concrete.
