Warmer days draw people outdoors to enjoy the sunshine. Spring days are literally a breath of fresh air after being cooped up in the house all winter. Warmer weather also heralds the arrival of the spring cleaning bug. Fueled by a once-a-year urge to freshen up the house, yard, and landscaping, homeowners embrace the chance to clear out clutter and get rid of anything that’s unwanted.
This cleaning frenzy often leads to home improvement projects that also need to be done. Taking care of these projects now helps spruce the place up for the coming year. It also gets the project off the to-do list and out of the way, so that you can enjoy other activities during the spring and summer months.
Rent a Dumpster for the Occasion
Regardless of the project size, it seems that most home improvement projects leave a mess behind. That’s where Small Haul Containers can help. We’re the area’s #1 Kansas City dumpster rental company.

Spring Home Improvement Projects to Consider
Here are just a few home improvement projects that work well at this time of year. Once you decide which one to tackle first, visit the Small Haul website to reserve your small dumpster rental. That way, it’ll be ready when you are!
Add a Deck or Porch
Thoughts often turn to spending more time outdoors as the weather warms up. One of the most popular springtime home improvement projects is the addition of a deck or screened-in porch to the back of the house. Decks and porches are ideal for entertaining, dining al fresco, playing with the dog, or curling up with a book. According to HGTV, adding a 16-by-20 foot deck onto the house may increase the home’s resale value by an average of 90.3%. Even if you have no intention of selling the place anytime soon, you won’t go wrong by adding a porch or deck.
This type of project is likely to generate a lot of yard waste as you make room for the add-on. Yard waste can be disposed of in a residential dumpster rental, as long as it’s separated from the other trash. You can also get rid of lumber scraps, old decking materials, excess screens, or old outdoor furniture that’s no longer needed.
Make Roof Repairs
The winter months are hard on roofs, and roof leaks often show up during this time. As snow melts, you may notice sections of the roof that need attention. Now is the time to get up there and make repairs — before spring rains get here. Most homeowners can handle minor roof repairs on their own. But if you’re not comfortable getting up there, call a local roofing company to help out.
Old roofing materials such as shingles, flashing, and underlayment can all be disposed of in a small dumpster rental. It’s easy to toss the items in from above. Just remember to practice safety first! Make sure you have a spotter nearby before climbing on the roof to make repairs.
Repair or Replace Gutters
Having a well-maintained gutter system on your house is essential for keeping water away from the foundation. Gutters take a beating in the winter; snow and ice can get very heavy. If you’re generally not good with gutter maintenance, there’s a good chance you’ll need to replace some sections of the guttering this spring. You may also need to make repairs to the fascia boards behind the guttering if water has backed up underneath them.
The bottom line? A gutter replacement job results in lots of debris. All of it can be tossed in a dumpster and hauled away.
Remodel the Kitchen
If you’d rather tackle an indoor project, a kitchen remodel may be just the thing to keep you busy until warmer weather arrives. There’s nothing like a freshly remodeled kitchen to encourage one to start planning for the next dinner party.
Kitchen design is constantly evolving. Today’s modern kitchens feature light, airy, functional footprints that draw people in while still allowing for easy movement from one station to the next during meal preparations. Storage options have also evolved, and kitchens now include such conveniences as small appliance garages, coffee bars, and charging hubs for the family’s electronic devices. Modern lighting is a great way to liven up the space, as are new countertops. And kitchen cabinets can be replaced, refinished, or refurbished to create a whole new look.
Kitchen remodels can be as big or as small as you want, depending on your taste and budget. Regardless of the size of the project, though, you’ll be thankful you have a roll-off dumpster rental parked in the driveway. You’ll need it!
