1. Interior Demolition- This is the process of demolishing a building or structure from the inside out. Walls, ceilings, and floors are all removed until the building or structure is completely demolished.
2. Exterior Demolition- This type of demolition is used when a building or structure is standing but in bad condition. The exterior walls are torn down until the building or structure collapses.
