Demolition projects may seem straightforward, but they require intricate planning, specialized tools, and a safety-first approach. Let’s delve into why outsourcing demolition work to experts like Freedom Junk Hauling and Demolition isn’t just efficient—it’s also incredibly cost-effective.

Average Time: 40-80 hours

Doing demolition yourself requires time—time for planning, executing, and cleaning. Even if you place your own hourly rate at a modest $25, that’s a whopping $1,000 to $2,000 worth of your time.

Average Cost: $100-$1,000 per day

From sledgehammers to excavators, every demolition project has its equipment needs. Renting can cost anywhere from $100 for basic hand tools to $1,000 per day for heavy machinery.

Average Cost: $50-$200

Good-quality safety gear like gloves, masks, and goggles are essential. Cutting corners here can result in injuries, potentially leading to steep medical bills.

Average Time Saved: 30-60%

A professional team can often complete a project 30-60% faster thanks to their expertise, directly translating to lower labor costs.

Average Cost Saved: $100-$1,000 per day

Professionals bring their own specialized equipment, saving you from those hefty rental fees.

Average Time Saved: 10-20 hours

Navigating the maze of permits and local ordinances can be incredibly time-consuming. A professional service handles this for you, freeing up more of your time.

  • Equipment Rental: $500
  • Safety Gear: $100
  • Waste Disposal: $300
  • Time: 40 hours (at $25/hr) = $1,000
  • Potential Medical Costs: ??? (Variable)
    Total: $1,900 + potential medical costs
  • Flat fee (includes labor, equipment, and waste disposal): $1,500
    Total: $1,500

In this example, the professional route not only saves you $400 but also frees up 40 hours of your time and significantly mitigates risk.

Average Cost Saved in Long-term: 10-20%

Professionals ensure that the job is done correctly the first time, potentially saving you from future costs related to mistakes or oversights.

Average Material Recycled: 50-80%

Professionals typically recycle a significant portion of material, something that would take extra time and resources if you were to try to do it yourself.

When you add it all up—time, equipment, labor, and the intangibles like safety and regulatory compliance—outsourcing demolition work to a professional like Freedom Junk Hauling and Demolition is the most economical and practical choice.
