It can be difficult to know what to look for in demolition companies, but it doesn’t have to be. SK Excavating knows just what you’re going through as we’ve been involved in many demolition projects.

We want to make sure you get the best experience.


Is a full demolition needed? This is a great starting question, as you want to know what all can be done for your space, needs and budget. Asking potential demolition companies this question right off the bat can help you know your options, as well as know what their knowledge and experience can lend.

What are your safety measures? It goes without saying that any reputable demolition company should certainly put safety first.

What do you do with the debris? There is nothing worse than a half-done job, but with some demolition companies, that’s all you get! Make sure you know exactly how and when your demolition company will be disposing of the debris from the demolition.

What do you do with hazardous debris? Every reputable demolition company should have a solid answer for this. This touches on safety, knowing their permits, industry and having a plan for debris. The last thing you need is a pile of debris (some of it hazardous) sitting where your old building used to be with no clear plan.

Who will have to get the correct permits for the demolition? This is another great question, as all experienced demolition companies  should answer with a strong and sure ‘we do!’. Make sure your demolition company knows the local laws and regulations for construction and demolitions, as the fines can be hefty.


As stated above, there are things to avoid just as there are things to look for. One such tip that you might be talking to a less-than-reputable company is a lack of care. This can be a lack of care for safety, their employees, the permits, regulations and laws of the area, etc. Make sure you trust the demolition company you will be working with, as demolitions can be dangerous.

Another great way to be sure you’re getting a good fit is to ask about pricing upfront. At SK Excavating, we even offer free quotes.

Finally, when looking for demolition companies, make sure they have a plan. A safety plan, a debris plan, a hazardous waste plan. Having an organized company will save you headaches down the road.
