The benefits of salvaging historic building materials
There are times when maintaining a building of historical significance is no longer worth the effort. Whilst some heritage buildings should be protected and cherished, other buildings are structurally unsound and need to be demolished. Demolishing a property of historic value can be a tough call, but sometimes it is the right choice, particularly:
When a building is a threat to safety because of the condition (serious structural defects or weak foundation) – removing it increases safety and property values.
If a historic building is a fire hazard, contains asbestos, or is causing other issues, then removing it is in the public’s best interest.
If the building looks old and abandoned, having it demolished can increase the value of the properties around it.
When the land could be used in a new way that is more beneficial for the community, for example, create a local park, a community garden, or a new high rise apartment building.
