I am looking at a teardown property--small 800-1,000 sq. ft. home, one story.

Anyone done a teardown? If so, what were demolition costs and insurance?

Thanks

Are you anywhere close to one of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore supply houses? Habitat will provide deconstruction services and they get to keep all of the good stuff for sale and reuse at other places. You get a tax deduction and a vacant property. And best of all, the material gets reused and doesn't simply end up in a landfill somewhere. This is win-win all around.

Kenneth,

Thanks for the heads-up. Yes there are a couple of ReStore locations in the Chicago metro area.

However, I would have to assume they are going to come in and take what they desire (which I have no problem with) and I am still going to need to make the lot vacant and tear it down. I can't imagine they can make use out of everything and I will end up with a vacant lot.

Do you have experience with them in these situations?

As I understand it, they take everything. That is the price they pay to take the good stuff. And no, they don't do it for free. Deconstruction takes labor (more than pure demolition), you get to pay for their time. Give them a call, they will provide an estimate. For even money, I would use their services over a demolition company. For slightly higher premium, I would consider it because I also itemize my taxes and could take the deduction. Get too much premium though, and it all goes to a landfill - nice, easy, and fast...

I have never done a teardown/rebuild. I have no direct experience with Habitat Deconstruction services. I have volunteered for Habitat, have been through their local ReStore several times, and donated my excess building materials to them as well.

A friend of mine has recently received a quote from Habitat for deconstruction of a 1,600 sq. ft. ranch in the KC metro area. The bid was ~$28K for them to take everything except the foundation. When he considered the additional cost of the foundation demo, the tax write-off was not nearly enough to make up the difference between traditional demo and deconstruction. I helped him tear out a lot of aluminum and copper ahead of the demo, and that was worth a fair amount as scrap. You should get pricing for both options and make your own decision. Please update us with what you decide.

Holy cow, $28K! For 1,600 sq ft! Yowsa!

The loose verbal quotes I have gotten down here are $7K-$9K (this is for standard, non-Habitat, demo). I am all for helping out, but not at that price. BTW, I contacted a couple of Habitat locations in Chicago Metro and none have the manpower to undertake such a feat.

I will keep you updated as to when (or if) I start. If I do, I will start a journal.

Just an update, have gotten several loose bids on a teardown, 1,000 sq ft house, basement, and a detached one-car garage.

Bids ranged anywhere from $6,600 to $9,000. The quotes included demo and haul away. All in all, not bad. I was expecting to hear worse.

I just got two quotes for a teardown, haul, and smooth grade.  One was $11,500 and one was $5,500. It pays to shop around. There are a few people out there looking for work. Sounds like I can save money on my new build excavation too.
