The demolition cost of a building is usually tied to its square footage. The national average for commercial demolition is usually $6 to $12 per square foot, so you can get a rough idea of the costs associated with demolition by multiplying the square footage by a dollar amount in that range. The formula multiplies the area’s length in feet by its width in feet and its height in feet. This number is then multiplied by one-third and divided by 27 to convert the answer into cubic yards. To make it clearer, the equation is as follows: (Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Height (ft) x 1/3) / 27. Yes, homeowners’ insurance covers debris removal.
