House demolition encompasses many forms of demolition, but you can rest assured that we are able to cover all your complete house demolition needs.

Our House Demolition Process

We use care and precision for all areas of your project

The most common form of house demolition is total demolition, wherein the structure is completely demolished and reduced to rubble. We also offer different types of demolition, such as strip outs and cut and carve demolition, but most people are looking for total house demolition. If this is the type of house demolition you are after, then you have come to the right place.

Our experienced team can demolish all manner of structures, so if you need your multi-storey house demolished or just need the garage levelling so you can build a new one, look no further. Our demo experts are licensed, trained and experienced in all types of house demolition. There are two main approaches to house demolition which we have outlined below. Both are effective, safe, and efficient.

Machine Demolition

Machine House Demolition

Complete house demolition isn’t done with explosives or wrecking balls (like most people think and see on TV), because these methods are unsafe and banned in the UK. Most demolition companies opt for demolishing houses and bungalows with the bucket end of a digger.

This lets us demolish large structural walls and buildings in a much more controlled manner, rather than letting the building crumble and not being able to control the fallout. Demolishing houses with the bucket end of a digger is a safe and efficient approach to demolishing large structures, but it has a significant disadvantage. This is when the use of manual demolition comes into play.

Manual House Demolition

Rather than dismantling a structure with a machine and digging through the wreckage afterward to save any recyclable parts, we can simply separate wood, metal, brick, and plastic as we tear it down and recycle it right away.

Manual demolition is the better option for thorough waste removal and recycling services, as well as having a lower environmental impact. Both forms of demolition are effective and will get the job done, but manual demolition is a much more intentional and streamlined process which will save time in the long run.

Demolition Permits and Permission

As with all demolition projects, you need planning permission to demolish a house or a bungalow. Planning permission and the type of permission you need depends on your house specific demolition project. Several factors come into play when it comes to house demolition, such as the type of demolition, the size of the property being demolished and the location of the property.

You need to ask your local planning authority for advice on what is required for the demolition you have in mind before any work commences. If you do not get planning permission or prior approval to demolish your house, you might face legal action as a consequence.

For more information on planning permission and the specific permissions you might need for your house demolition, please refer to the full government guidance on demolition and permission.

Cost of house demolition

House demolition can be a complicated process, which is why it’s important to hire a licensed demolition company like Feltham Demolition. We understand the ins and outs of every aspect of complete house demolition, from bungalow demolition to full flat blocks demolition. We also provide skips and all the machinery and vehicles necessary to demolish your house and clear away any rubble.

The cost of demolishing a house varies depending on the size of the job, the location and how much equipment we will need to demolish your property. A standard detached 4-bedroom house usually costs around £xxx and takes around 5-days to demolish and clear. This is obviously dependent on access, location of the property on the ground, materials it is made of, and the level of materials that need to be re-claimed or recycled. Properties that contain hazardous materials, such as asbestos, can be more expensive due to the way the materials need to be handled and disposed of.

House Demolition FAQs

Demolishing your home is a big task and can be a complex project. Here is a selection of questions we frequently get asked by people who approach us to for demolition of their house, flats, garage, or bungalow.
How long does house demolition take?

A standard sized house demolition usually takes around five days, but the time frame will vary depending on the size of the property you would like us to demolish. If you have any questions, we can give you a more specific time frame for your property if you get in touch with us.

Do you take the rubble away from my house demo project?

Yes. We have a fully operational skip hire service that we use to carefully sort through rubble and remove it in an efficient and environmentally conscious manner. We do our best to recycle as we go to ensure that nothing gets wrongfully disposed of. All rubble left as a result of our house demolition will be efficiently removed by us, so you don’t have to deal with it.

Do you secure the property?

Yes, we have security hoardings and take special care to make sure that the property and surrounding areas are safe and secure. This means, the site is protected overnight. We obviously make sure that any valuable items are stored safely on or off-site.

Can you demolish your own bungalow or property in the UK?

Technically, you can demolish your own house or property in the UK. If you have attained the proper planning permission, you would be able to do so. However, we would advise against doing so, as house demolition is a complicated and exact process that requires an array of specific machinery to be operated by professionals.

Chances are, you would have to hire machine operators, and then contractors, and skip hire, alongside anything else you might need. You may also need specialist demolition skills if you encounter any toxic materials, like asbestos. Our team is highly skilled and we own the correct equipment for asbestos removal.

This is why coming to a professional demolition company like Feltham Demolition is ideal. We have all the knowledge, and resources to efficiently demolish your property in a cost-effective way.
