Demolition Of Vacant House By Advanced Demolition

A vacant, dilapidated house at 301 Lynnhaven Drive will be demolished by Advanced Demolition.

City Council members Monday approved a low bid of $4,500 from Advanced Demolition of East Peoria to tear down the house, remove debris and grade the property. City Administrator Jim Culotta said demolition probably will begin in a few weeks. Before that happens, city workers will remove a large tire in the backyard that has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes because of stagnant water, according to neighbors who spoke at the council meeting. The city owns the Lynnhaven property after having it declared abandoned and being granted a judicial need.

Nobody has lived in the house since the former owner died in June 2013. Neighbors first contacted city officials and expressed concerns about the house last summer. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom, 775-square-foot house south of Washington Plaza was built in 1965. It has an attached 264-square-foot garage that now has a plastic sheet covering the entrance.

"This is a neighborhood of well-kept homes. I can't imagine what it has been like for neighbors who live nearby or drive past the home to have to look at this house," said Mayor Gary Manier. "I'm sorry it has taken so long to get to this point, but we needed to do things the right way, the legal way," he said.

Aldermen directed city staff to have the house demolished on the contractor's schedule and not wait for a possible legal snag to be untangled. City Attorney Rick Russo advised alderman to wait until a buyer of the home's back taxes was reimbursed by Tazewell County before the house demolition takes place. But aldermen went against Russo's advice, even though the city could incur legal costs to resolve the back taxes situation.

Culotta said he doesn't anticipate the legal fees would be significant and he's asked Russo to check with the county regularly to make sure the reimbursement process is moving quickly. Advanced Demolition of East Peoria was the low bidder at $4,250 for the house demolition last month of a dilapidated home at 400 N. Lawndale Ave. in Washington. The city doesn't own the house, but it obtained court permission to have the house torn down.

House Demolitions Peoria, IL. Area

House Demolitions - Peoria, IL.

How much does house demolition cost?

Sometimes the perfect building site has a dangerously run-down home already on the property and it needs to be razed. Or, a part of a house that isn't up to code needs to be removed.

Typical house demolition costs:
  • Complete house demolition by heavy equipment down to (but not including) the foundation/basement of an average house demolition with complete debris haul-away varies considerably; in the Midwest or other low-cost areas, it can be as low as $3,000-$8,000 for a small house demolition (800-1,500 square feet) with easy access for heavy machinery, but can easily run $7,000-$15,000 or more elsewhere, depending on size, materials, access and other factors.
  • A down-to-the-dirt professional demolition (including removing the foundation/basement) using heavy machinery and hauling away all debris can be $10,000-$25,000 or more, depending on size, materials, configuration (one- or two-story), local rates and access. A New Jersey realtor reports receiving house demolition bids ranging from $12,000-$25,000 to completely tear-down and remove an 1,800-square-foot waterfront home. Prices generally (but not always) include house demolition permit fees and debris removal costs. Total house demolition costs will increase if there's lead paint or asbestos removal.
  • Demolishing part of a house -- such as an attached garage, sagging porch or non-permitted addition that isn't up to code -- can be trickier because the rest of the structure needs to be unharmed. A simple project might run $1,000-$10,000 depending on the size area being removed, ease of access, the amount of debris and local labor rates dumping costs. A homeowner separated a garage and attached sunroom from the rest of the house, then paid a demolition company $6,000 to tear them down and excavate down 6-9 feet (to prepare for a new structure). A complicated partial-demolition project can be extremely labor-intensive and could run $15,000-$75,000.
  • Deconstruction is the orderly dismantling of a structure so the materials can be reused in another project or recycled into new products. TheReusePeople.org , a nonprofit California deconstruction company, estimates that removing a 2,200-square-foot home might cost $10,000 with standard house demolition methods and $24,000 with deconstruction, but could produce a tax savings of $29,000. The Sierra Club provides an overview .
House demolition related tags: Debris RemovalDumpsterFoundation DemolitionConcrete RemovalAsphalt Removal
What should be included:
  • Typically a representative of each company will visit the house demolition site before submitting a house demolition bid; this is the time to mention any possible problems with asbestos, lead paint; heavy equipment access, underground utilities or a septic system, or other concerns. Be specific about any plans for the house demolition site (they need to know if you're going to rebuild) and the condition you want the property in when the house demolition work is completed.
  • In most cases you will need a house demolition permit, and utility companies must be notified before any gas, water and electrical lines are turned off and ripped out. (Most house demolition companies will handle this for you, but be sure it's included in the house demolition quote.) BobVila.com describes the typical permit and planning process.
  • Full home demolition typically involves heavy machinery. An average home can be demolished in a day or two.
  • Demolishing only part of a home usually requires careful manual labor; BobVila.com provides a video of a front porch demolition and HGTV.com provides tips for tearing down an attached shed.
Additional home demolition costs:
  • Often any required permits are included in the demolition price, but if not it can be anywhere from$25-$100 depending on the size of the house, to several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on local rules. Some areas, such as several towns near Chicago, have imposed demolition taxes/fees for complete house tear-downs of as much as $10,000.
Shopping for house demolition:
  • In the Peoria IL. area get house demolition estimate here. Ask about specific experience with this type of demolition. Be sure you understand exactly what's included, how debris removal will be handled, and who is responsible for any required permits or dump fees. BobVila.com provides a home demolition checklist.
  • Residential house demolition is typically handled by smaller demolition companies, which are often are set up to tackle a wide variety of projects. Check whether a house demolition contractor is properly insured and bonded, and whether there are any complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
  • The National Demolition Association provides referrals to its members, as well as house demolition contractor licensing requirements by state.

How Much Does It Cost To Demolish A Peoria Area House?

How Much Does It Cost To Demolish A House in the Peoria, IL. Area?

If you have purchase a condemned house or one that is so old you are going to have to spend a small fortune to make the house livable again you may want to consider demolishing the old house and erecting a new house in its place. Sometimes tearing down a house may be your only alternative. Below are some facts and figures about home demolishing costs.

Is the House Worth Salvaging or Demolition?

If you are not sure whether getting rid of the old home is really your best option you can consult with a building demolition contractor. In addition some very old homes may be sitting in a historic district and you would be unable to tear the home down. This information is easily obtainable if you contact the building department in the city the home is in.

Next consider the price of the lot the house is on. Some lots in affluent neighborhoods can be worth a load of money, even if there is no home on the lot. In fact, many neighborhoods that become the “new dream place to live” would be excited to get a new home and attract even more buyers.

What to do Before Tearing down the House

Before doing any house demolition you will need to get a permit from your local city or county government. It is not advisable to try a home demolition without a permit. The fines you could face would quickly eat away at your house demolition budget.

Check with the gas, water and electric companies to make sure all of the utilities are off. Also find out if there are any lines underground that you need to be cautious of. You may have to wait a couple of days for everyone to send a technician out to disconnect and abandon all utility lines and mark underground lines. It may be wise to check with the local fire department as well in case they require notification of such house demolition plans.

Make sure you are properly equipped to deal with hazards such as asbestos. Many homes erected prior to 1950 have asbestos insulation and floor tiles. Asbestos abatement may cost you an additional $2 to $4 per square foot to remove. Don’t forget about the lead paint in old homes as well.

Estimated Costs of Complete House Tear Down

If you are considering a complete house tear down but want to leave the foundation or basement of a home that ranges between 800 to 1,500 square feet you can expect to spend between $3,500 and $8,500 dollars. This is for homes located in areas of the United States that are low cost such as in the Midwest. This estimated price includes debris removal. In areas that are more affluent such as in big cities you can expect to spend between $7,000 and $15,000.

Demolishing a home and removing the foundation or basement will cost a bit more. The price ranges from $10,000 to $25,000 and depends on the materials, whether the home is one or two stories, the rates of local house demolition contractors for similar work and how easily the home is accessed. Remember the total house demolition cost will increase if there is lead paint or asbestos in the home.

Partial House Demolition

If you have a garage that isn’t attached and has outlived its usefulness you can expect to spend between $1,500 up to $6,000 depending on the location and what it is you are tearing down. A porch my cost more than the garage when demolishing because the porch is attached to the home and during demolition care will need to be taken so damage is not done to the rest of the house.

Deconstruction instead of Demolition

When you tear down something and want to save the materials for use on another project you are deconstructing rather than demolishing. If you deconstruct a house in an affluent state you can easily spend double the cost for deconstruction as you would to demolish. For example a home that would cost $10,000 to demolish will cost about $25,000 to deconstruct. The up side to deconstruction is you could see a some but little tax savings.

Other House Demolition Costs to Consider

If you are required to get a permit prior to demolition you can expect to pay $25 to $100 for each permit and could go as high as several thousands of dollars. In Chicago, for example, the cost of a permit to demolish an existing home will cost you up to $10,000 for the permit because of their local rules. In addition utility companies may charge for a service call if they have to come out.

Remember when considering whether or not to demolish a home you need to consult with a local demolition company about permits and utility companies to abandon all power lines. Demolishing a house can be a great money saver if you have many costly repairs that need done in order to make the dwelling livable once again.

Cheap Way to Demolish a House in the Peoria Area

South Peoria and North Valley shows many dilapidated, abandoned houses with boarded windows.

PEORIA — A ride down streets in South Peoria and the city’s North Valley shows many dilapidated, abandoned houses with boarded windows.

City officials have long tried to improve the look of some these blocks by demolishing homes that are unsafe or have a “blighting influence.”

The problem is, the vast majority of money budgeted for 2015 to raze the structures has been used. More than $750,000 has been spent knocking down 73 houses in just six and a half months. Most of these homes are in South Peoria, the East Bluff and the North Valley, said Assistant Community Development Director Joe Dullin. Last year, it took the city nearly 11 months to knock down the same number of structures.

These old abandoned buildings aren’t only eyesores but can be illegal shelters for the homeless, dangerous playgrounds for children and sites for criminal activity. In some blocks of South Peoria, up to 25 percent of the homes are boarded up or vacant, said Ross Black, community development director.

“Last year the city tore down more houses than we historically ever torn down in the south end, but there’s still a need and demand for more,” Dullin said.

Black said unless a building is an immediate danger to lives, such as the fire-damaged home at 401 NE Monroe St. that burned in late May, no progress will be made on the “list” of homes in need of demolition this year.

Even if more money was available, deciding to knock down homes that went through the lengthy process of getting a court order for demolition gets complicated when emergency cases arise.

“We were not anticipating a demolition (at 401 NE Monroe St.) and all of the sudden we have to do it,” he said. “We may go into a week saying ‘We can knock down this house, this house and this house’ and then we get a lot of rain or there’s a fire and we have to start all over again.”

At least seven more emergency demolitions occurred because of near-record rainfall and flooding in June.

Black did say the city is making progress on improving the appearance of neighborhoods, though it will be a number of years until the number of houses in need of demolition is under control.

Dullin said it is tough to determine exactly how many homes need to be knocked down because the department understands that it does not have the resources to secure all the court orders and pay for demolitions.

Black agreed saying, “Unfortunately there’s no lack of buildings that could be demolished. At least for the foreseeable future we’re going to have more properties that need to be demolished than we’ll have funds to do the demolitions.”

He said the increased need for demolition, which costs at least $8,000 per single family residence, is due to a lack of funding in the 1990s — the city simply wasn’t knocking down old houses. The problem has cascaded and now demand heavily outweighs supply, leaving blocks littered with homes that hurt the image of some neighborhoods.

Moreover, increased demolitions produce increased vacant lots, which also have a negative influence on a community’s appearance and requires upkeep that is paid for by the city. A legislative effort that would let the city impose liens on other properties across town — or elsewhere in the state — owned by the individuals who hold title to the dilapidated structures has been stymied.

“We’re just trying to catch up,” Black said. “Houses will simply continue to deteriorate and if you can demolish the houses that in the worst shape every year, then you can create stability in neighborhoods. The problem is once you get behind it’s really difficult to catch up unless you have a massive funding source that can come in and help.”

For a building to be torn down, the structure must meet one of 13 “dangerous building” criteria, which includes having boarded windows and entrances, outlined in chapter five of the City Code. A demolition order must be then granted by a judge, which can take six to nine months.

In 2014, about half of the 86 homes demolished were in South Peoria. The North Valley and East Bluff had 14 and 13 houses torn down, respectively.
