The Do’s & Don’ts of Demolition, Rainy Lake, Minnesota

Remodeling is all about giving yourself a fresh start. Demolition is a major part of this process, as it clears out old materials and readies your space for fresh furnishings. However, before you start remodeling your home, make sure to acquaint yourself with these demolition do’s and don’ts.

Do:

Give yourself plenty of time

If you wait until the last minute to remove furnishings and other home items, you could easily delay demolition work. Secure temporary storage at least a week ahead of time and begin transporting your belongings as soon as possible. This will ensure that the space is sufficiently clear so that the contractors can bring in their equipment and start working right away.

Seal off other areas of your house

Demolition involves tearing down walls and breaking up materials, which can create a lot of dust. Keep airborne particles from infiltrating the rest of the house by setting up barriers. Hang sheets of plastic around the perimeter of the room and ensure that all doors are tightly shut.

Don’t:

Neglect to warn your neighbors

The first few days of a home remodeling project can generate a lot of noise. Avoid complaints by telling your neighbors about the impending work well in advance. This will give them time to prepare for the temporary inconvenience that the remodeling project will cause.

Overlook salvaging usable materials

While the materials that you’re about to tear out of your home may not be of use to you anymore, someone else might need them. If the general contractor verifies that they’re in good condition, have them carefully cut them out. Contact a local organization that offers donation pickup services, and you won’t have to store the materials on site for long.
