Partial Demolition Services
When you only need part of a structure to be demolished, we may suggest you choose an internal demolition. Also referred to as an internal strip out, this process will involve a trained crew who will come in and prep the structure for the demolition and restoration, or in other words a strip out. At this time, any potentially hazardous materials such as lead pipes, asbestos roofing, polychlorinated biphenyls, Synthetic Mineral Fibre, and more, will be removed. While this is ongoing, other team members may ensure the integrity, or core, of the building, is both intact and preserved. Once the strip out is completed, the area of the internal demolition will be empty and ready for the renovation.
Internal Demolitions…Easy Right?

By relying on a certified demolition company, you can feel confident in knowing the strip out is done with safety protocols in mind while paying close attention to the care of the structure as a whole.
