Demolition in Austin
New construction and remodeling projects often begin with some organized destruction. If you’re tearing down an old home, ripping out a wall, or otherwise destroying something, think Grime Time. As residential demolition experts serving the Austin area, we understand homeowner and contractor concerns during project demolition. You can count on us to exceed your expectations and leave you with a clean slate for building.
At Grime Time, we have a team of experienced and trained individuals capable of demolishing just about anything safely. Sometimes the old has to go to make room for the new. Unlike many other demolition companies, Grime Time can conduct careful removals and deconstruction. Whatever it is that needs to go, we can take care of it safely and efficiently.
Floor Demolition and Removal
Like many other demolition and removal projects, safely tearing out an old floor requires a special skillset and highly specialized tools and equipment. While you might be able to get the job done on your own with some basic tools, the likelihood of causing accidental damage and spending long, frustrating hours is very likely. Our trained experts can have your floor demolished and removed quickly and safely. We can remove many flooring types, including tile, wood, laminate, vinyl, weather tile, and carpet. We also perform many finishing tasks, including:
- Removal of mortar under the flooring.
- Grinding down and smoothing the concrete subfloor.
- Cleanup of all debris and dust created during the demolition and removal process.
- Removal of debris for recycling.
Land Leveling Demolition
Leveling the land may be necessary when you’re preparing to build a home, garage, or another structure. Furthermore, if your property has uneven land, it can cause poor irrigation and water runoff. If you have irrigation problems with your lawn, garden, or small-scale farm, leveling the land could be the answer to your problem. Whether leveling the land for irrigation purposes or a building project or land sale, the process requires specialty heavy equipment and expertise. Grime Time has the tools and the means to accomplish any leveling demolition project you have in mind. Depending on the nature of the land that needs leveling, our team will drive bobcats, skitters, bulldozers, and other leveling equipment necessary to get the job done. We will choose the best methods and tools for the job after carefully inspecting the land you want leveled and calculating the amount of dirt that needs to be removed.
Pool Removal and Demolition
There are many benefits to removing your pool. If you are not a frequent swimmer, the high maintenance and upkeep cost might not seem worthwhile. Removing your pool will create more valuable lawn space and allow for more landscaping opportunities. If you have young children, removing your pool will eliminate the possible hazards of open water near your home. Whether you have an inground or an above ground pool, we have the expertise to remove it safely without damaging the surrounding area. If you wish to remove an above ground pool, the process is simple and involves draining, tearing down, and hauling away the pool. If you have an inground pool you would like removed, we begin by draining the pool, drilling holes in the bottom, and demolishing the top. Next, we fill in the hole with rubble and soil. When the hole is filled in, we remove all the excess rubble and debris created in the process and clean the area thoroughly. When you decide to say goodbye to your pool, Grime Time is here to see the job done safely and correctly.
Concrete Demolition and Removal
While concrete does not require nearly as much maintenance as most other materials and is known for its durability and lifespan, it does not last forever. Sometimes sections of a concrete slab can be repaired if the damage is minor. However, some issues cannot be fixed and require removing the old concrete before you can repour. It may be time for complete removal of your concrete slab if you see:
- Large, wide, or uneven cracks.
- Frost heaves. Frost heaves occur when parts of the concrete are pushed up and buckled due to colder climates.
- Sunken or settled concrete. Settled concrete occurs when a part of your slab sinks due to improper preparation of the subgrade when the slab was first poured.
If you have a damaged driveway, sidewalk, garage floor, or patio area, Grime Time has the tools and the knowledge to complete any concrete demolition project you have in mind.
Garage demolition and removal is a very involved and difficult process and requires expertise and a wide variety of tools and equipment. There are many variables in determining the pricing and type of equipment needed to complete a garage demolition. Some of these factors include the type of area or neighborhood the garage is in, the current condition of the standing garage, whether the garage is anchored to a concrete slab or wired for electricity. Another important factor affecting the demolition process is whether the garage is attached or detached from your home. If you are planning a garage demolition, contact Grime Time right away to start discussing the details.
Commercial demolition is the deconstruction and removal of any commercial property. This can include schools, businesses, churches, factories, stores, and more. If you own a commercial property that has been neglected, it may be necessary to have the structure demolished before you can sell or rebuild. The demolition of most commercial properties requires heavy machinery such as bulldozers, wrecking balls, wire rope pullers, and other impressive tools. Along with an assortment of specialty machines and equipment, you also need a crew of highly skilled machine operators and workers to see this job done correctly. Here at Grime Time, we have both.
When a home is no longer habitable due to neglect or abandonment, it may need to be demolished to clear the plot before it can be sold or rebuilt. However, residential demolitions are not limited to houses. Residential demolitions can be done to remove any residential structure, including patios, mobile homes, decks, gazebos, barns, sheds, and other structures that are beyond repair. Demolitions on residential properties require special care and expertise to avoid damaging any of the surrounding structures. Our team at Grime Time has the experience necessary to safely complete any residential demolition you might have in mind.
