Who Do You Work For? Private Clients Or Companies/contractors?


Guys I have a question I have been having a really hard time finding big demo jobs, I saw that there is demo companies that are kept busy by other business that give them work on the weekly basis.

I want to start contacting business so I can create a relationship with them but wanted to see if any of you guys knew who to go to ?

So far I know I can contact the following:

-Tile companies

-Maybe Insurance not sure if this is more for restoration

What are you guys corporate/business customers?

It makes sense that if you're doing demolition most of your clients would be contractors.

Need to contact franchise owners. They will usually do their own demo to avoid paying a contractor fee. What part of the country are you in?

Re: Who Do You Work For? Private Clients Or Companies/contractors?


your post is somewhat confusing....

right off the bat you are questioning getting "big demo jobs", then you list tile companies as prospective employer....

a bathroom or kitchen tile demo ain't exactly a "big job"...

what kind of jobs can you handle with your experience, equipment and crew???

multi story commercial, house, concrete slab demo, walls????

are you haz mat certified? what about blasting???

IMO, you need to define what you are able to do then look at what kind of market is available to you...

Don't know if he's still looking for an answer but....


For totals, we can pull permits, and do all the work ourselves. We can get both big and small jobs. For residential, I don't wanna mess with selective, but I can tear the whole house down if that's what the owner wants. We are a small company so a big job in this case would be a commercial building 20k sf and up.



For selective (interior) demo, I would rather bid to a GC and be a sub. Then they can be responsible for not only the master pemit, but also coordinate the MEPF guys who inevitably will have cut/cap/reroute to do for us to be able to do our work. We can gut out mall tenant spaces, small stores, etc (small jobs). Airports for me have ranged from 1mil to 3 mil and that's a big job for a small company.
