It would be easy to assume that demolition follows the same process no matter where your project is located or what is being demolished. However, there are stark contrasts between residential vs. commercial demolition due to their different guidelines and procedures. If you have questions regarding what differentiates a commercial demolition from a residential one, and whether you’ll need a demolition contractor for your specific project, look no further. Alpine Demolition Services has the answers. Read on to learn more.  

Residential Demolition

Applied to single-family homes and larger multi-unit living spaces, residential demolition services are a critical part of many commercial demolition contractor’s service offerings. Usually requiring a much higher degree of care and precision (you’ll probably want to keep your neighbors happy) residential projects can greatly benefit from a professional contractor in many instances.

They also differ from commercial projects in terms of the equipment used and logistical needs. Frequently, residential demolition projects require regular communication and contact between home /building owners. Updates on project progress, consultations, and any other questions or comments are just a few of the factors which contribute to this increased need for communication.

Commercial Demolition

Commercial demolition services apply to large structures, usually used for retail or office space. Accordingly, commercial projects differ from residential ones in terms of equipment used. These larger buildings necessitate the use of larger demolition equipment, or in some cases, explosives.

Similar to residential projects, commercial demolition contractors will need to communicate with each other during the demolition project to make sure all teams are on the same page and remain safe and effective at work.
