You found yourself in a situation that you have an old shed which you don’t use anymore. You want to get rid of it but you don’t know how to do it. How much will it cost you? What conditions do you need to fulfill? Do you need any permissions? How to take care of the waste? Those are just a few questions that require answers.
Do We Require Permission for Demolishing a Shed?
Usually, it does. The permission to take down the shed is required in most of the cities. They are needed in almost every situation when buildings or structures are demolished or being changed.
However, if you live in New York City or Seattle, you won’t need it. In those and some other specific places, permissions are not asked for.
How Much Will It Cost Me to Remove My Shed?
The price of a shed removal and demolition varies on a few conditions. The location is something obvious. Or, to simply say: If your shed is in a higher income area, you must be prepared to pay the higher price and vice versa. The location does not consider just that condition. Namely, the location of the shed on your property is also of great importance for the price of its removal. If your shed is closer to the driveway the price will be lower since it’s much easier to remove it. If you’re removing a shed from a location that requires permission, you’re probably planning to get one. But, be prepared for some additional costs since you will have to pay for the fee so you could get your permit.
If your shed is in relatively good condition, there is a great possibility that someone might be interested in buying it. You can put a “Sale” sign in front of it, or you can put an add on Craigslist and hope someone will show up and remove it for free.The connectivity of the shedis a very important condition because if your shed is tied to a concrete slab – it takes much more work. More work equals more expenses. This is the very same thing you can count on if your shed is wired for electricity. The disconnection and wiring removal will affect the price.Overall, these costs can vary a great deal. It goes from $200 to $2,000, depending on the things we have pointed to you.
Can We Do It Ourselves?
Do you think you can do it yourself? That might be true, but always keep your safety in mind. It can be quite a challenge sometimes. Removing your shed on your own will save you some money, but it surely won’t save your time.
