When it comes to pitching a kitchen, basement or total home renovation to your significant other, the only thing they want to hear is how much is getting taken out of the savings account. Between tools, labor and dumpster rental cost, even tackling the smallest of projects in your house can be astoundingly expensive.
It’s a fairly slim chance that your husband or wife is going to be happy with a five thousand dollar quote to redo the guest bathroom before the in-laws come into town. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to gather competitive quotes to find the lowest total.
Many people mistakenly think that the most expensive component of a project will be the new materials they want to put it place, like cedar kitchen cabinets or a hand sensor faucet for the bathroom sink. While these things can definitely take their toll on your finances, the real money will go towards the peripherals that keep the project in momentum until its completion.
Those will be things like the power tools and trash dumpster you will need to rent. Things that are cost prohibitive to buy, and therefore, must be acquired from a third party agency.
You and your partner will probably spar over whether to hire contractors or do the job yourselves. If you are a total beginner that hardly understands the basics of electrical or gas systems, you should probably hire professionals for your own safety. It is far to easy for a novice to make a bad wiring connection that could easily start a fire a few days or weeks after everything has been sealed up.
If you are comfortable with work around the house, though, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to do at least a one room renovation without running into too much trouble.
After you have planned all the parts and equipment you will need, start contacting some Maryland dumpster rental companies to get quotes on a container. The sizes will vary from ten to forty cubic yards on average, and you should always go a size higher than you think you will need.
Almost every renovation ends up entailing far more work and producing way more waste than you could have ever anticipated. Get quotes from a handful of agencies to ensure you find the lowest price, and always procure the necessary permits before parking an orange monstrosity on your front lawn.
