Century-old barns make for great photos and movie sets, but these aging structures can also pose a real danger to farmers, livestock and landowners. Unless regular maintenance is performed, these massive buildings quickly fall into a state of disrepair, and skilled craftsmen that have the knowledge and equipment needed to repair old barns are a dying breed.
Here at Next Day Demolition, we provide fast, reliable barn demolition services that make dealing with your decaying old barn simple and stress-free. We use the safest, most efficient techniques in the industry to ensure your unwanted barn is removed in a way that leaves your property clean, safe and ready for you to rebuild on.
What Impacts the Price of Barn Demolition?
Barn demolition pricing may seem like a mystery, but the fact is that every demolition project is unique — that’s why it’s impossible to set a flat-rate price for barn demolition.
Here at Next Day Demolition we take the time to carefully evaluate every barn in order to provide the owner with a clear, accurate quote for our barn demolition services. Some of the factors that impact the final cost of demolishing a barn include:
- The size of the barn
- The location of the barn
- The current condition of the barn
- Whether or not utility work is needed to disconnect electrical and/or water services from the barn
- The materials the barn is constructed of
- Whether or not some of the materials can be reclaimed for re-use
- The height of the structure
- Ease of access to the demolition site
- The price of the demolition permit (if required)
Tearing down barns that contain old hay, straw, or farm machinery costs more than demolishing an empty barn does because these items need to be removed before demolition work can begin. Barns that are located next to other barns, sheds and silos are also more expensive to demolish than free-standing barns are due to the extra care that’s needed to prevent unwanted damage to surrounding structures.
Can I Make Money Off My Old Barn?
You might have noticed that there’s a market for furniture, flooring and home decor products made from old barn boards and ‘vintage’ barn tin. Whether or not the materials in your specific barn have any market value depends largely on the type of wood, the condition it is in and the current selling price for barn boards in your area.
When considering the total price of your barn demolition, keep in mind that deconstructing a barn in order to salvage the materials is a labor-intensive process that can add significant costs to your project. In many cases, the amount of money the barn owner is able to earn by selling off their old barn boards is less than the added expenses involved with deconstructing, rather than simply demolishing, the barn.
Here at Next Day Demolition our barn demolition experts have up-to-date knowledge of the marketability of reclaimed barn wood and tin. We can provide you with an accurate cost comparison to help you decide if you’d simply like to have your old barn demolished, or if it’s worth the added costs to have your barn deconstructed.
