HOW TO GET YOUR NEIGHBOURS ON YOUR SIDE WHEN YOU DECIDE TO DEMOLISH YOUR HOUSE ?

Most people are fine with construction works in and around their neighbourhoods. However, most people like to know the who, the why, the what and the when of what's going on next door. Commonly, people will like to know the estimated start and end date of the demolition process. • The number of working hours per day. • Site start and finish times • Let them know if and when large machinery and vehicles are expected. • Is asbestos to be removed from the property. The staff at Home Demolitions are familiar with all of the usual concerns and queries from neighbours and are glad to take the time replying to emails or taking calls from any member of your community.

Well, if you're reading this, it's most likely that you're trying to get a rough idea on the cost of demolishing your existing house "presumably to build a new one" because, let's face it, there's a whole heap of varied information across the internet but not a lot of definitive answers.

Wildlife in the roof when demolishing a house. 

Recently in Sydney suburbs such as Ryde, Gladesville, Denistone, Eastwood and surrounding areas, Home Demolitions has found some wildlife lurking in places that often get overlooked. Be it possums, snakes or even bats, we strive to make sure wildlife gets a chance to leave before demolition begins. In the event the wildlife doesn’t leave, we always contact the appropriate wildlife services so animals can be safely removed.

A job well done,

Occasionally, a demolition site can be a little noisey and so you will notice machinery operators communicating with supervisors and labourers on the ground through a series of hand signals. Here is one of our favourites!

We all know Jake Gyllenhaal, he's starred in a tonne of classic films such as Bubble Boy and the ever nonsensical Donnie Darko. Although having not personally known of it, or knowing anyone that has, there is apparently a film from 2015 starring Gyllenhaal with the title: Demolition.

Not to be confused with the 1993 Snipes vs Stallone dystopian blockbuster Demolition Manthis recent drama film is about a man that loses a loved one which results in the entirety of his life being questioned. Dealing with complex thoughts and emotions, Gyllenhaal the main character finds solace in dismantling various items around his home which eventually leads to demolishing the whole house.

The movie itself scores a 7/10 on IMDB and even won a couple of small film festival awards. Although saddened that this film doesn't focus on the Demolition aspect of things "we would have loved to have seen a 20 tonne excavator become a plot twisting love interest" it may be worth a watch if you're a fan of Jake Gyllenhaal or director Jean-Marc Vallée "notable for directing some film called Loser Love?"

How To Crack A Safe: The Easy Way

Easy Safe cracking

Home Demolitions comes across personal safes and even commercial grade security lockups on a regular basis, the reason being that safes are notoriously heavy objects, often weighing in excess of hundreds of kilograms and so, many people simply opt to have the old heaving hulks of steel dealt with by a 20 tonne excavator. This particular safe however was already damaged and was no longer serviceable rendering it nothing more than an extremely awkward paper weight.

OH, NO! NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES!

Demolition Bees

There are many reasons to demolish a house; Maximising your properties value, the existing structure is no longer safe or to make way for new developments to just name a couple. As previously discussed, demolishing a house with tenants can bee tricky at times but what if the tenants have no legal lease agreement and refuse to leave - does this warrant demolishing a house? In this particular instance, a house located in Sydney's lower north shore suburb of Northbridge was inhabited by about twenty thousand squatters whom flat out refused to leave.
Fortunately for these bumbley little honey making insects, Home Demolitions had no intention of destroying their home and leaving them hive-less. As man kind is now staring to learn, bees are a crucial part of our ecosystem and without them, the world as we know it will pretty much come to an end.

Demolition of Bee House

The site had already been fenced, salvage and asbestos removal was ready to commence but the bees remained, few people were game to go anywhere near the swarm of ever increasingly angry yellow necked stingey doodles. Sure, extermination companies would be happy to come and well, terminate the bees but surely there is a better way? Knowing nothing of bees but assuming them to have some inherent value considering that an established hive sells for upwards of a couple hundred dollars. A couple of local bee keepers found on a local business directory all raised their hands when asked if they wanted to come and re-home this crazy bunch of pointy butt buzzers. It soon became a race to see who could get to the bees first to reap the sweet benefits of a perpetual honey making machine.

With the little buzzing picnic ruiners gone, procedures were able to continue as per normal. The house was prepped, demolished and the land was grazed to a nice clean and level lot for the building of a future dream home.
