What is Interior Demolition?

Interior Demolition is when a specific part of a structure is demolished. This can also be called “soft-demolition” or “non-structural removal” meaning not the whole building is being demolished. Think of Interior Demolition being done in just one room of a home, or only one floor of a multi-level commercial building.

Our extensive experience ranges from the interior demolition of metal studs and drywall to the leveling of entire buildings and asbestos abatement.

In addition to the demolition of one specific area, modifying a foundation, masonry removal, façade removal, coring and structural dismantlement is also part of the Interior Demolition process that can be completed by Rock Environmental professionals.

Why and When to Demo?

Interior Demolition is an alternative to completely tearing down an entire home or building. The exterior of the structure must be sound and intact, and then just the interior can be demolished or renovated. A plus to using interior demolition versus full building demolition would be the ability to salvage recyclable materials.

These materials can include fixtures, tile, lumber and other reusable materials. That way, nothing is wasted, and as little material goes into landfills as possible. In turn, the environment is less negatively impacted than it would be. This is a smart, responsible–and financially sound–way to handle the interior demolition process.

Think of demolishing a bathroom with all the fixtures still in it like the sink and the tub. That will ultimately go into the trash and not be able to be reused. The interior demolition process completed by the experts at Rock Environmental allow those materials to be recycled.

Impeccable Safety Preparation

There are many steps that must be followed before any type of Interior Demolition can begin. Any asbestos testing and abatement must be completed along with removing any other hazardous or regulated materials. Depending on the type of interior demolition being done, permits might be required by your town or city.

Also, there may be a need to inform utility companies to help ensure safety. Lastly, the site-specific safety and work plans must be created. Regardless of the project, safety comes first. There are always certified personnel on site to enforce safety and precaution. If there is asbestos found in the home or building, the abatement process can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Only after all asbestos has been removed can the demolition begin. There are also other Health and Safety measures that Rock Environmental experts follow throughout the entire Interior Demolition procedure including:
