Mr. Morisy - Would you please clarify your request pertaining to "...housing demolition contractors..."? We have contracts for residential demolition, single-family residences, multi-family residences, mixed-use properties, and just "structural" properties, etc. I have identified hundreds of contracts for demolition contractors in our database and want you to be advised that no information was returned using "housing demolition". If possible, would you please narrow your request. When I used the search phase "demolition", I received 572 results.
