How much would you bid?

Just trying to get an idea if I am in the right ball park on my bid. What would you bid to remove this? Thanks

I wouldn't bid to remove. I'd bid to fix whatever was wrong with it. It appears to be in decent shape. After you remove it, then there are door(s) on the upper level that would need to be secured or have another landing and steps installed.

They don't want it repaired, they want it completely removed, it's starting to rot out in all the places where the screws are.

Right around a $1,000

I would like to get 12 but could do it for 8 and still make a little.

I could also do it for around $1000. I would burn the wood in my shop. Also depends on how far to the trailer.

HArd to say What are you going to do where the lag screws went through the siding calk and paint ?? OR ??? Make sure to put in your bid something akin to " removal only no resealing or replacement included in this bid" Ply wood or 1X 4 over the outside of the door every 2 ft . COVER your ass. Put a piece of ply over the bottom window and cut the deck into 2' pieces and let them drop into the trailer away you go and remember if present to include to grind off anchors flush with concrete in verbiage of bid... Trip hazard and potential liability on your part

$2,500.00 all day long. Padlock the doors from the inside and go to the next job.

Man, I wonder about the liability of padlocking a door. I'm not well versed in fire codes, but I'm picturing a scenario where neighborhood kids are goofing around downstairs in this vacant house, smoking cigarettes, playing with matches, who knows, and it gets out of control. They then run upstairs to get away and find the door padlocked shut. Same with removing that landing and stairs. My version of events are highly unlikely, I think. But what if.

I'm sure there's a plan to replace the deck. If they are hiring you to remove this structure, worry about that. The rest is not your problem. And be sure you state that in your bid. Like Splinter said - CYA in your bid description.


I'd bid in the 1000 to 1200 range and take it down on sections. and if you can dettach it from the house, and those posts are on top of the concerete, think about pulling down the main deck after removing the steps. Hard to say from the photo, that may or may not work, but it would be safer for your people.
