Why demolish after a disaster?
There are good reasons to demolish a building, especially after severe weather.
- Weakening of the foundations: after a storm or flood, bad signs may appear and leave you no choice… When the foundations have deteriorated to the point where they no longer support the house properly, the building may have to be destroyed for safety reasons.
- The building contains hazardous materials: old buildings may contain hazardous materials, such as asbestos. If they were not a problem before the disaster, a flood or fire could change things and become a danger.
- Non-compliance with government building codes or zoning laws: damage from a disaster can cause the building to no longer meet standards. This forces owners to carry out costly renovations. Sometimes it is better to demolish the house to build a new one that meets the regulations.
- Planning to sell a vacant lot: if a building is no longer in good condition, the decision to demolish it before selling the property can be a wise choice. A vacant lot is more easily marketable than a lot with a building in poor condition.
If you are considering demolition, you should never undertake the project without consulting specialists.
