Demolishes Things Big & Small

Andre Abajian is living almost every little boy’s dream. After all, who hasn’t wanted to demolish a building or a pool? The loud hum of the heavy equipment, the thunderous sounds of the jack hammer and finally the demolition itself, keeps the heart of this second generation contractor pumping.
As a Licensed General Contractor, Andre operates SoCal Removal and is in the process of completing the biggest demolition of his career. In Yorba Linda, SoCal Removalis working with the city and historical societies to salvage and demolish seven units.
Obviously your project will not be of the same magnitude, but there are many instances when you may need to demolish an interior or exterior structure. Recreating baths and kitchens, removing pools and spas are typical jobs undertaken by SoCal Removal.

Demolition Requires Knowledge of City Codes & Permits

The guts of your home can be a dangerous place so safety is the utmost concern when demolishing a building or interior structure. Gas lines, sewer pipes and buried cables run throughout. Damage to an electrical line or water pipe can cause a fire or flood to occur. Obviously such catastrophes must be avoided; consequently the development of the city permit process.
Each city has its individual guidelines which must be followed to the letter. Failure to do so can have serious financial consequences. Knowing the dangers within the room is critical to insure proper abatement. In 2013 another local demolition company was fined $180,000 for improper asbestos handling. With SoCal Removal that will never occur. We are certified in asbestos abatement and will insure all hazardous material is properly disposed of during the demolition process.
The specific requirements of Cal-OSHA and the city are researched for the project. The resources required are selected and managed by SoCal Removal. We will insure any Specialist required will be available to satisfy any regulatory requirement.

Each Project Requires Specialized Equipment

Obviously the equipment Andre’s team is using on the Yorba Linda project is not appropriate for demolishing the bathroom you have always hated. The good news is SoCal Removal has a history in the area (Andre was born here) and access to a wide array of equipment. We pride ourselves in our relationships with local businesses and generally have the machinery on site in 24 hours.
Our network enables us to insure that we start the project on time with the proper resources. Our ethical business practices have allowed us to negotiate some unbelievable rates. Obviously that is wonderful news when it comes to the total project cost.
Whether your project requires a backhoe, tractor or even a massive excavator SoCal Removal will have it on site, on schedule and on budget. It is all part of the project management aspect SoCal Removal prides itself on.
