Next day they gave me estimate, it was very acceptable so I decided to go with them. Nathan and his crew were great to work with, they were quick, disciplined, clean and polite and they finished job on time and within my budget. And I love my new deck! Thank you Palm Construction!"

    SRV, LLC

    "Val and Bogdan did quality work finishing our basement (which included a new bedroom and bathroom). They accommodated our needs and the challenges/quirks of our old 1920s house. And went above and beyond sometimes - carried out our old washer/dryer and got the new ones down our basement stairs :oThe small bumps in the road that came were handled promptly by Paul. We were given a detailed estimate and the work stayed within that estimate. Work was done well within the estimated time-frame (only some minor supply/delivery delays that were outside the team's control)"

    Shanco Restoration Services, Inc.

    "We are very pleased with the painting work our contractor, SHANCO Restoration Services, performed on our home recently. Our two-story home, including the basement, was originally constructed in 1990. We moved to this house in 2014. The house was apparently last painted in 2011 and the paint and siding itself were still in pretty good shape, except the color didnâ t suit us.To ensure our expectations were met, we prepared a detailed Scope of Work upon which bids were solicited (including the make, â model,â and color of paint to be used). We required 2 coats of both the base color and the trim color. We received 6 wide-ranging bids. Although its bid was â middle-of-the-pack,â SHANCOâ s bid actually incorporated our Scope into its bid document, which gave us confidence our desires would be followed. So we awarded them the contract. Most of the house has LP composite siding, so the painters had to be very careful when pressure washing. Although the old paint wasnâ t pealing, the high bidder actually wanted to strip the old paint; this process would likely have required us to fully re-side the house given the fragility of the LP siding!The cleaning, masking and painting work took only 5 days! The size of SHANCOâ s highly-qualified crews varied, depending on the work required any particular day. And as expected, the workers were very cooperative in following the Scope, right down to the smallest detail for masking trim boundaries. They tarped-over adjacent landscaping, concrete surfaces and our new TREX deck to prevent over-spray. The workers were very professional, competent, and friendly to us. They graciously touched-up areas we pointed out. When the painting was completed, they were very diligent in removing all masking materials and cleaning our yard and concrete surfaces of debris.We definitely recommend SHANCO to anyone with an exterior painting project, and we would be happy to use them in the future!"

    "Carlos & his team helped with ceiling removal in 2 rooms that required immediate attention due to water damage. We kept expanding the scope of work as we discovered additional areas to remove. Carlos was very accommodating and did an excellent iob of removing the ceiling, cleaning up and getting the job done in a timely & high quality manner.We had 2 5/8 drywall attached to the ceiling board & Carlos took extreme care in ensuring that the pipes & wires were intact when he removed this drywall attached to the ceiling. It was not easy & I am very happy with how he got it done. Additionally Carlos & his team are super punctual & very responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Carlos again. Thank you for the excellent job Carlos!"

    "Absolutely top notch. Andrew was very generous with his time and drove and hour to my somewhat remote location to evaluate the project and give me a bid. The men came on time and were very experienced and did an excellent job. The were tidy and finished promptly. An outstanding part of working with Baklinski was the communication from the office. They kept me informed and tracked every step of the job. I would certainly recommend them. Truly a cut above."

  • Materials of the structure/area being demolished
  • Whether or not you want to keep the foundation (for stucture demolition)
  • Access issues including close neighbors and nearby trees or other obstacles

Frequently Asked Questions

What do demolition companies charge?

Demolition companies specialize in keeping the teardown process safe. Depending on the structure, they use explosive devices and heavy equipment to get the job done.

How does controlled demolition work?

Controlled demolition is the process of tearing down a building or other structure by using explosives. Place explosives in specific locations to minimize harm to property or humans during the collapse. Extensive expertise and preparation are required to get this right.

What questions should I ask a demolition company?

  • Do you use explosives or other equipment?
  • Do you have a business license and insurance?
  • Do you subcontract out any of your work?
  • What's your experience with projects like mine?
  • Can you give me references for previous clients?
  • What safety precautions will you take?
  • What is your safety record?
  • How do you plan on disposing of the waste?
  • How much time will you need to prepare the site?
  • What will your quoted estimate include?
  • Do you guarantee your work without any property damage?
