Doing construction down south is not an enviable job, especially if you are an untrained novice hoping to save money by doing it yourself. Between getting the tools, learning the techniques, and choosing a dumpster rental Florida agency, you will be spending a lot of time doing preparation work instead of the job itself. But because there are so many free resources available on the Internet, you will not have to worry about getting in over your head as long as you follow the advice of professionals and allot enough time to do things correctly and up to local building codes.
The things necessary to do so are entirely dependent on what you are doing. If you are completely gutting an old home, there will be a lot more labor involved than installing some new cabinets in your kitchen. Any type of project were renovation is occurring will almost invariably require a large capacity dumpster to get rid of old materials as they are removed from the home. You won’t be able to simply stack smashed drywall and old sinks on the front curb, hoping the garbage men will have mercy on you and defy practically every local ordinance in the book.
Florida has some of the strictest building codes in the nation, and because of regular natural disasters like hurricanes and forest fires, failing to stay up to code means you could compromise the integrity of your house should natural disaster strike. Even inland communities have stringent laws, so getting a copy of your city’s laws in regards to home repair will help you to stay within code. Aside from your local government, home insurance companies will also insist on a thorough inspection by a professional to make sure everything with the electrical and plumbing is safe.
If you do need a dumpster for a large job, you will also need the permits that typically go along with it. Your neighbors will be none to pleased at a big orange waste disposal unit in your front yard, and will probably inform the city as such. Don’t let a noisy neighbor cause you to be fined for not having your paper work in order.
Whichever rental agency you decided to use will help you through the permit filing process and may even have records on file with the city themselves. Also make sure you are renting a unit that is sufficiently sized for the needs of your project.
