Concrete Block Removal


Demolition unit cost for removal of 8" cinderblock or concrete block walls.

Unit Size

One square foot (about 1.125 blocks).

Labor Costs

We figure an unskilled worker can remove about 25 square feet of block wall per hour.

Material Costs

The price includes jackhammer rental time. On smaller projects you might want to wield a sledge hammer instead, but then the labor cost is probably a little higher.

Suggested Quantity

This unit cost uses the foundation demolition area (from the structural dimensions screen).

Source of Construction Pricing

Based on crew timing from a couple of projects done by Turtle Creek Construction.
