Common Misconception #02: Demolition Contractors Destroy Many Structures that Should be Saved.

Demolition contractors are instrumental in achieving the goals of preservationists. The façade and many important architectural details are preserved in a building when its interior is gutted and renovated to incorporate modern conveniences and energy efficient equipment. Communities are improved aesthetically when demolition contractors remove deteriorated roads and bridges and unstable structures that were damaged by fire, earthquake, or weather: historic structures can also be saved through selective structural demolition.
