Top Demolition related questions

A trained demolition contractor safely dismantles permanent and non-permanent structures. You’d hire a demolition contractor at the start of any major renovation or refurbishment work so you have a blank canvas for building or redecorating.
Demolition labourers commonly demolish, dismantle, and remove bathrooms, tiles, sheds, and walls. Usually, they’ll dispose of any rubbish at the local tip, and sell salvageable materials for recycling or refurbishment.
Your demolition contractor will choose tools and techniques based on the size and location of your project, but the most common methods used are deconstruction or mechanical demolition. Deconstruction is done by hand using chisels, hammers, and screwdrivers, while mechanical involves jackhammers, bulldozers, diggers and excavators.
License rules depend on what you’re demolishing (for example, residential, commercial, the height of structure, and wall-type), machinery needed, and state regulations. If you’re unsure, check with your local government and council regarding licenses and demolition permits.
Yes. Permit decision are influenced by factors like the local environment, the structure’s heritage, and the impact demolition may have on the appearance of the area. Demolition licenses and permits are regulated by state law and local councils.
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant demolition service licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What does a demolition service include?

Demolition contractors remove interior and exterior structures, tiling, and paving. They’ll do this by hand or using larger machinery like diggers and bulldozers. If you need a structure taken down, here’s what to expect when booking your demolition service through Airtasker:

Wall demolition

Need garden walls, indoor walls, or mailbox pillars removed? Hire a demolition contractor to take them down and remove the rubble. Depending on the size and location of your wall, your demolition labourer will either work by hand using hammers and nail pliers or bring a digger. If they need specialist machinery, they’ll also discuss property access and cost, and add it to your demolition quote. Is your wall made from brick or timber? Ask your demolition contractor for a deconstruction demolition service so you can keep and reuse or sell the materials.

Bathroom demolition

Organising a bathroom renovation? Then you’re going to need your existing bathroom ripped out. Bathroom demolition includes removing sinks, bathtubs, showers, units, toilet, tiling, and walls. Your demolition contractor can either dispose of these items for you (at a cost) or place in your hired storage. After demolition your plumber, builder, and electrician can start fitting your new bathroom, using any stored items you salvaged.

Tile removal

Arrange professional tile removal to make sure your home and health are protected from dust and dangerous shards. When pulling up or demolishing tiles from your pool, walls and floors your demolition service will first cover the surrounding area with dust sheets. If you’re keeping the tiles, your contractor will most likely use a hammer, chisel, and scraper to carefully lift them. If they’re being disposed of, your demolisher may use a sledgehammer or jackhammer and floor scraper. Regardless of the removal method, professional tile removal should cause minimal damage to the underlying surface. Your demolition contractor may also offer to prepare the surface so it’s ready for fresh tiling. Before leaving they’ll clear the area and (if it’s included in your demolition cost) take the broken tiles with them.

Shed disassembly

Get metal or wooden sheds on your residential or commercial property taken down. You may need more than one demolition labourer and a van or skip, depending on the size of your shed. Arriving on-site your contractor deconstructs the shed using their own tools. Metal is often sold for scrap and reusable materials are salvaged. Some demolition contractors take this into consideration when costing your job, so it’s a good idea to provide photos and as much detail as possible about what your shed’s made of. You may save yourself a few bucks.
