Buildings become older with passing time and need to be demolished in order to build a new one to ensure safety of the occupants and to comply with the local building safety regulations. These services are offered on both large scale and small scale depending on the size of the building to be demolished. These services are available in packages as well, which will be discussed later in the article, but first let us know in detail as to why buildings need to be demolished in certain places.

Reasons for the demolition of buildings :

Old buildings can break anytime
When buildings become very old, there is always a danger of them breaking as all structures have a lifespan beyond which it is dangerous to dwell or use that structure. Its lifespan maybe reduced further due to non-repairable gaps through which water seeps into the buildings and damages the concrete and beams that are used to make the building strong. Old building crash and create huge loss financially and at times cause damage to human life as well. This is why demolishing such buildings is not just necessary, but also mandatory.
Faulty constructions
At times due to some kind of faulty construction or because of the use of poor quality materials in order to save money building get unsafe and need to be demolished. This happens when the building has been ordered to be demolished by the government or the owners of the building decides to demolish it. Both the situations have two aspects as from one side the owner of the building will suffer losses due to the demolition and on the other hand people who were in danger because of the building will be safe It can also happen that crucial engineering mistakes will lead to the whole building being rendered unusable much before it nears its lifespan.
Rules of Demolition
There are certain rules of demolition that need to be followed while demolishing a house or a building. So let’s understand the rules of demolition of a house and a building separately. Demolition services are those services where an old house is broken into dust with the help of the demolition squad that comprises men.

House Demolition Services happen in a week’s time when the owner of the house comes to the agencies that deal with demolition related services and shows them his ownership papers of the house. Then they go ahead with a quote and after it is agreed the demolition starts with the topmost floor where the workers break the roof first with hammers and drilling tools; this is important because the roof is the heaviest part of a house. Then, once the roof is broken, they go ahead with the walls till the house is grounded.
Building Demolition Services
The building demolition services are way more different from that of a home demolition service as here things happen on a large scale. The process of this is also different here as in the case if the building is owned by multiple people, then a mutual consent is needed to carry out the demolition process unless the government orders it and people from the government itself may come and demolish the building.
Here a lot of modern technology is used in order to make the demolition process safe and secure for people doing it and also the people who live nearby. In case if the building is a high-rise one and is surrounded by other high rise buildings as well, then the buildings nearby are evacuated while the demolition process takes place, for various safety reasons. Large buildings are demolished using explosives. It needs accurate calculations by demolition experts where the building is made to implode. If neighboring buildings are very close, then the building to be demolished is covered by metal sheets at a safe distance to ensure debris does not fly and cause damage to nearby property.
