Can anybody recommend a good contractor to tear down and haul off an oversized 1 car garage? It has no slab...just termite infested walls and a roof overhead.

I can't recommend who "to" use, but can caution you about using Wooten House Movers. If you do, make sure the finest of details are in the contract they provide, although they still do not abide by the signed agreement.

Rent a dumpster for a weekend and go find some $10/hr day laborers. You'll be able to do it for 1/4 the cost of what any demo company would charge.

Alternately, just borrow a trailer and take the remains to the city dump. I demo'd an ancient 2.5 car garage and was able to fit all of it on a 16' trailer.

Today I went down Holmes Road to explore the area. There were so many concrete plants. I visited Argos, Cemex, and Allied Concrete! I enjoyed my day

My wife worked for Cemex a number of years ago. Ever since then she has a tendency to correct anyone who calls these cement or concrete plants, saying "that's a ready mix plant!". Apparently the industry is picky about the term.

 

That's a good location for them, since it's reasonably close, but there's not a lot of people out there.

 

You might consider a drive along FM2234/McHard Road. There's some of the same stuff, plus the antenna farm, and oil field areas.

They're a big crane company in the industrial world, lots of the refineries and chem plants use them for the heavy lifts.

Deep south rigging is lodged in my brain. Was about 200 feet from this disaster when I was still an intern in college. 21 years old at the time.

I bank at the Texas Bay Credit Union and was there early that morning in July 2008 and the crane came down around noon that day. 

 

These are some pics from Feb. 2013 project at the Lyondell Refinery on Lawndale.
