From The Owner

Hi, I’m Ben. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like what you see, and that we have an opportunity to meet in person. If we are a good fit, I would love the opportunity to handle your demo project.

Our Story

I performed my first house demo early in 2018. The project went horribly – over schedule, my price was way too low, inadequate equipment – but I was hooked. “This is something I can specialize in and be very good at”, I thought. And by the grace of God, that’s exactly what I did. By the following year we had transitioned from landscape contracting specializing in drainage solutions to almost 100% demolition work.

Over the past five years we have tackled a wide variety of projects ranging from small mobile homes in the mountains, to a.d.a. demo work for Hardee’s on the coast, to even a sailboat demo in the Upstate.

Due to the rapid escalation of real estate values in the area, many owners are demoing old houses and structures on their properties in anticipation of redevelopment. This type of project remains our bread & butter, as well as my personal favorite type of demo. I enjoy bringing value to the owners by laying the groundwork for maximum utilization of the property while also eliminating blighted structures across the Upstate.

My favorite part of the demo process is the thorough removal of foundation/footers. This step transforms the property in my mind from a house/building site to a completely clean slate, ready to be used for anything from a pasture to a commercial development.


We are a smaller demo company. The focus is always on a thorough demo rather than rushing “on to the next one”.

A mobile home or barn removal would be the smallest project we would be interested in, and a small strip mall would be the largest project we would be interested in. We are able to be very competitive on houses of all sizes, limited access situations, and small commercial (eg, Waffle House).

If you have read this far, thanks for your interest. Feel free to call, or submit a “contact us” email with any questions.
