Deck Removal CosT
Decks come in many shapes and sizes and are made from many different materials. While the starting price for deck removal is $10/foot + HST that can change based on the material the deck is made from and of course, the size. If you have a deck made of patio stones or concrete the price will likely go up, if its composite or a soft wood like pine the price may not change very much at all. If they deck has multiple stories or is vast in size, if the deck is blocked off and difficult to access from beneath like a fenced of deck then prices can vary. Either way, whether it is made of concrete, metal, stone, or wood we can take that deck down and clear it away with ease. Any deck no matter the size or shape, it’s all the same to us. We can remove it safely making sure nothing is left on your property after by hauling it to a place that can recycle or bring new life to the material your deck was made of. Decks that are very high up will require special tools and technology so the price can go up from there. If you have a one hundred square foot, ground level deck made of non-pressure treated wood with legs that touch the ground but are not set in concrete and the deck is not of multiple levels then that deck could be taken down for $1000 dollars flat, loaded on a truck or a bin and disposed of appropriately through a wood recycling plant. Make sure to remove anything from the deck that you want to keep like furniture or toys, your barbecue and anything else that may be on it. When we start, we will immediately dispose of anything on the deck to make the work go faster. So, leave what you don’t want, and take what you want inside. Debris removal is part of the price. All we ask for is a place to park and load our trucks.
Why Choose Us?
Deck Demolition Newmarket
There are many reasons why a deck may need to be taken down and many of those reasons relate to wildlife and weather. Animals like rats’ skunks and raccoons along with gophers, ground hogs and other burrowing animals will live under your deck as a home. Burrowing and dragging food under it and in the case of a skunk making it smell terrible. This is one of the many reasons some people just don’t want a deck at all. It attracts animals that want to use it as a den. Raccoons will use it as a den to have babies under and then defecate on the deck. Raccoon feces is very dangerous and contains a parasite called raccoon round worm that is a dangerous parasite that can infect any mammal and is deadly, incurable, and untreatable. These feces cannot be cleaned without a full face covering respirator as the feces can dry quickly in the dun and become air born. The weather can be unkind to a deck as well. If you are not interested in buying large amounts of chemicals to retain, UV coat and retain your decks appearance every year then it will degrade faster and start to rot. A deck with rot is a deck that can injure and even kill a person that walks on it. So, if you are not interested in the upkeep of a deck then having one can become a serious danger to you and your family. Decks are like a living thing, even concrete decks can get damaged by inclement weather, frost, cold and sun. No material will last forever so if you don’t want to be responsible for the expense of keeping a deck you must get it removed right away. Sunlight and wood are not good partners. They can shrink the wood by desiccating it and moisture can cause wet and dry rot. Wet rot is obvious but dry rot cause by the sun is not. It looks like a green hie to the wood and may snap under your foot with ease. If you have a deck with dry rot you will want to get it demolished as soon as possible. Wet rot is more serious and may need a professional to resolve. While we can remove the deck or even just the rotting parts we can also repair them with wood hardener and filler. We can also remove it entirely which also comes with free disposal. Our pricing is always clear and transparent, call us for an estimate today! 647-370-8133

How we Work
Our technicians are trained in construction and are insured against liability. They are well aware of the danger of demolition and will take the deck down in a structured way that makes it safe for them and for you and your family. The planks will be removed, the railings and banisters and then the under structure of two by fours followed by whatever support is used to keep the deck in place. Either on ground wood support or in-ground beams with concrete supports. All materials will be disposed of into a bin, or a van and that disposal is included in the price. We will never forget a piece of the deck, not even one nail. All materials will be accounted for and disposed of. We keep track of everything. The safety of your family is important to us so we will never leave anything dangerous on your property, including detritus from the deck itself. When removing in ground supports, we will fill the holes with gravel and soil to ensure they are stable and safe. Tamping down the soil to ensure that it is the same hardness as the ground around it. In a short time, the grass will grow onto it and it will be like there was never a deck there in the first place. Throwing wood away is destructive to the environment. Wood is precious and trees need to be saved. For this reason, none of the wood we take goes to a dump. The only kind of wood that cannot be recycled is pressure treated wood which we do not install but will remove. This treated wood is filled with so many chemicals it must be disposed of in a special site with a concrete base to prevent chemical leakage into the soil.

Why Demolish or Replace A Deck
Decks are an image of family fun. They allow you to be outside without having to get your shoes dirty. They hold barbecues and tables, chair, and toys. They are the centre of outdoor life and a goal of every family to have. The problem with them is that they age. Decks need constant care and work. Every year you will need to sand and resurface the deck if its made of wood. If its made of concrete you will need to fixe cracks and holes which can cost even more. If its made of composite you will not be able to fix it and will have to get a whole new deck every five to ten years making it a massive expense. There are many types of decking materials including metal which can rust and become very dangerous for your family and even plastic which can warp and stain from water damage. Cleaning a plastic deck requires chemicals and those chemicals will seep in and cause long term exposure to your family. There is a lot that can happen to a deck over the years and unless its kept and inspected every year eventually there will be an accident. And you do not want that accident to happen to someone you love or a contractor on your property.
It is very easy to inspect your deck and tell if it is too old and needs to be repaired or removed. Just look at it. Is it looking old and grey, is the wood looking warped and shrunken. Are nail’s showing above the wood? If you walk on the deck does it feel almost like you are bouncing up and down. This is called trampolining and happens when wood gets dry rot or has become too old to support you. This wood is on the verge of braking and needs to be replaced. Nails pop out, the dangers get greater as the years go on. Pressure treated wood lasts longer but is full of chemicals that will seep into the ground and its appearance is not as beautiful as natural wood.
If your deck is in this bad of a state then taking it down may be the only answer. However, if there is only some rot, wet rot or dry rot that is damaging only part of the deck then it can be resolved. Planks can be replaced, nails as well. Wet rot can be treated with wood hardener and filler and we can even go so far as to build you an entirely new deck. Whatever the reason Deck Demolition Newmarket will be with you every step of the way.
