Project cleanup is always part of the deal.
Summer weather has a way of motivating homeowners to begin projects they’ve been putting off. Many home improvement projects have to do with enjoying the outdoors. And a good many renovations depend on nice weather because the house has to be open to the elements while the work is being done.
While these projects may be considered fun by many – especially if you enjoy DIY work – no one enjoys cleaning up once the work is finished. Small Haul Containers, your Kansas City dumpster rental headquarters, has small dumpster rentals for just this purpose. Having a residential dumpster rental in the driveway makes the cleanup on nearly any home project much easier.
Summer Projects Made Easier with a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental
Check out these popular summer projects, all of which will be done much quicker if you rent a dumpster from Small Haul before you begin. Visit our website to check availability and reserve yours now. That way, you’ll have it when you need it. Cleanup will be a breeze!
#1. Kitchen upgrade. There’s nothing more disrupting than redoing the kitchen. That’s because the kitchen is such a frequently used room. Most meals are prepared there, even if they’re sometimes eaten in other parts of the house. And the kitchen tends to be a gathering space for family and friends.
A kitchen remodel is much easier to contemplate when you have a plan for quick cleanup. A small dumpster rental is ideal for this purpose. It can hold old cabinets and countertops, light fixtures, backsplash tile, flooring, and anything else that needs to come out to create your newly updated kitchen.
#2. Bathroom remodel. A bathroom remodel is just slightly behind the kitchen on the list of inconvenient home projects. Unlike kitchens, most homes these days have multiple bathrooms, so at least you don’t have to do without. But it’s still unsettling to have to relocate, even temporarily.
Bathroom redos often include knocking walls out to create space for features like an extra sink or vanity, a jetted tub, or a zero-entry double shower. All that demolition debris has to go somewhere. When you rent a dumpster well in advance, you ensure you have the situation under control before you even start. The sooner the cleanup is out of the way, the sooner you can enjoy your newly remodeled bath.
#3. New landscaping. Many homeowners don’t realize that yard waste can go into a residential dumpster rental. The caveat is that it can’t be mixed with other trash. Do you need to tear out bushes that didn’t do well over the winter? Toss them in the dumpster. Digging up part of the yard to install a new patio and fire pit? All that dirt can also go in a roll-off dumpster rental that you’ve reserved for this purpose. Nothing else can be mixed in with organic matter (dirt, grass, leaves, etc.).
If you’re replacing the driveway, the old concrete or asphalt can be disposed of in a small dumpster rental, along with other construction materials.
#4. Window replacement. There’s nothing like beautiful windows to encourage a new view of the neighborhood. New windows spruce up the place. They also contribute to lower utility bills since most modern windows rate well on the energy-efficiency scale.
All those old windows have to be torn out first, though. When that happens, you’ll be glad you have a roll-off dumpster sitting in the driveway. Toss the old windows out, and move into the new window installation phase of the project. You’ll be seeing more clearly in no time!
#5. Roof repair or replacement. Some homeowners are handy with tools and aren’t afraid of heights. For those intrepid souls, roof repairs or a roof replacement aren’t an issue. They can handle it themselves. But most people prefer hiring roofing contractors for this kind of work because it’s safer, and the job usually gets done faster.
Regardless of which route you choose, roofing materials will come off the house and need to be disposed of. This is when a roll-off dumpster is useful. Experienced professionals can toss shingles into a dumpster without climbing down off the roof. Guttering, flashing, underlayment, and other roofing materials can also go into the container. Just remember: safety first!
#6. New deck. Summer evenings are perfect for enjoying time with friends and family in the backyard. A new deck makes the event even more special. Wood decks eventually wear out, even if they were originally built of high-quality treated lumber. When it’s time to tear the old decking out to make way for the new, rent a dumpster first. Cleanup will be a snap!
#7. Prep for a move. It’s not uncommon for people to move from one house to another during warmer months. If you’re getting your house ready to sell, you’ll probably need a dumpster for the decluttering process.
It’s amazing how much stuff accumulates in a house over time. If you’ve lived in yours for more than five years – and are like most people – you probably have old couches or chairs, broken tables, outgrown clothes and shoes, and defunct electronics or small appliances sitting around taking up space. Who wants to move a bunch of junk into a new home? Now is a great time to get rid of all that. You’ll start over in your new house feeling lighter and more carefree.
