Demo in MN

I need a whole house demolished and I don't have the expertise. Its 1 1/2 story full basement unsafe because of fire. Anyone from around here have any recommendations? I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Wheres it at in Sootaland? Demoed many a home on Minnesoota. Hated doing them for a P&P Servicer since they just dont understand that once backfilled and sowed that there is settling that needs addressed weeks later.... We always found it hard to find clay for packing. Ask away..there are some very experienced Demo guys on forum.

PS. How bad was this fire? Live for fire rebuilds Must be really bad or house worth nothing....

I have partnered with a professional demolition company for large debris removal and demo projects.

I take their bid and mark it up. When we do the job either me or someone else takes the pics of the work and dumpsters.

They pull all the permits and have the correct insurance and equipment for the job. I just take pics and cash checks.

It all depends on the locale. We have had jobs from both extremes where we burned them to the ground and scraped the remains to having EPA and Natural Resources on site and having to appear before city councils.
Jumping on the back of a local demo guy is an easy fix if there is room for the markup.

Some Jennifer and I had a major blowout regarding a reassign yesterday. They wanted us to take an order at the edge of our coverage area for a dead mouse. We have never been to the property I said no. She told me that I needed to take the order or remove it from my coverage area. It got ugly when I explained to her that I didn't HAVE to do anything. I went off and explained to her that I was a sub. I don't have to justify anything and the 5 brothers packet says I have the right to refuse work. She said this would affect my rating. I stated that I don't acknowledge the ratings system. I only acknowledge paychecks.

Make sure you include asbestos test and possible drainage plan depending on city codes. Best bet is to get demo contractor and tack on to his price, just beware of the incidentals they can add up quick and put you in the hole.

Ratings spin is something nationals like 5 Brothers use to motivate and to intimidate subs into thinking they are one job away from extinction. My response to several regionals with 5B was to inform them that we had to prioritize our crews with the clients that provided us with the most revenues, and they just didn't pay enough to justify sending guys out on nickel and dime jobs.
