Ok got a call today to demo a 2 car garage. It's wood sided and half falling down. I normally don't do exterior demo but thought ,hey why not. My question is what size dumpster do you think it will take to put this thing in. My guess is a 30 yrd. Any thoughts or things to consider.

What's the dimensions? I would do a 40 yd dumpster to be safe and dump other debris you may have from other jobs. Will save you on dump fees b

Depending on the size of garage...40 yard dumpster

Make certain all utilities are disconnected.
Watch for any hazardous material left in the garage.
It will take you longer than you think.

Do you have to demo the slab & footings?

Watch the weight...check with your dumpster company on limits.

How do you wanna take it apart..with a machine..or by hand.
Is there debris inside you have to dispose as well.
Convert all walls an the roof in cu yards..add 15% for fluff.
Make sure the down doesn't require a demo permit.

Thanks everyone. And yes I need a permit, this ain't my first rodeo. My normal demo's are interior though. I'm getting more and more clients wanting exterior demos though. A month ago they wanted a home done, but I don't have the equipment for that . Just keep rolling with the punches. I figure a garage is a good starting point. It's gonna be all by hand, and I'm thinking 4 guys and one day?

Might be cheaper to rent equipment and 4 guys in 4 hours.

After tearing down a chicken house that was flapping in the wind I can promise you they come down a lot harder than one thinks they should.
For a building to just collapse takes a lot of things not going right all at once.


That chicken house was so weak I could move it side to side and corner to corner by hand.
It took a lot of hard pulling from a 4x4 diesel pickup to bring it down.

So you're leaving the slab right? Be very careful if it's post tension slab.

The easiest way besides burning is sub it to someone who has the equipment. If its a property that will convey the slab and footings have to go and all depressions in ground filled and hopefully packed. Enough said :)

No its for an agents own rental. They want to keep the slab so they can rebuild it one day.

If you don't have the right equipment yet, rent it.
A mini excavator is good for small buildings, use the arm to tear into the structure and rip it apart, then use a skidsteer with grapple bucket to load into dumpster. 1 operator and a laborer should be able to do that job in a day.

Good luck!

I thought about that too, but the rental is a killer. It's about $400 per plus delivery plus dumpster. I want to be competitive on price. Just not sure.
