In order to start a bathroom remodel in your home, you need to complete demolition on your old bathroom. By clearing out your old bathroom fixtures, ripping down your walls, and giving yourself room to work, you can prepare your home for your new bathroom space. The first thing you should do to ensure that your bathroom demolition project is successful is hire a company that specializes in demolition serving San Francisco, CA. Once that’s done, you should take these steps to finish the project.
1) Complete an engineering survey.
In some cases, demolition will not affect the rest of your home when you do it. However, if you are taking down walls and making your bathroom bigger in the process of demolishing it, you are going to want to have an engineer come in to make sure that you don’t demolish an important part of your bathroom and do damage to your home. You may have an important wall that can’t come down, or you may need to install a temporary beam before taking down a wall in order to keep your home structurally sound.
2) Identify hazardous materials.
Before you demolish your bathroom, you should have a company inspect every single area of it closely to see if you have any hazardous materials in it. If you fail to do this and you demolish a part of the room where asbestos is present, you could have a huge problem of your hands. By identifying potentially harmful materials ahead of time, you can plan to have them removed properly so they don’t cause health risks for you, your family, or those working on your bathroom.
3) Obtain proper permits.
Depending on where you live, you will need to pull certain permits to do a bathroom demolition and remodel. Make sure you get these permits and post them so that you don’t run into any issues down the line.
