House Cleanout, Selective Demolition and Strip Out, Wirral
If you have been considering a makeover of some rooms in your home, you will probably need to remove existing fixtures, and some of the structures first. The mess will result in an inconvenience to your routine and even a small demolition job requires thorough planning if you wish to achieve the outcome you desire. Any demolition results in quantities of waste and rubble that must be removed.
What is a Strip Out?
The selective demolition or strip out method is used when the existing structure has a suitable outer shell, but the interior needs to be renovated or refurbished. Strip out works are popular with the remodeling of kitchens and bathrooms as the outer shell is kept, but the entire layout is redesigned. The waste removed includes old tiles, shelving, flooring, and cupboard shells. Demolition usually happens while the normal daily activities of the home carry on, so it is important to plan carefully for as short a time-frame as possible, to minimize the discomfort that you will go through. We at Junk Removal Wirral are professionals at hauling away waste from demolitions. We will help you work out a timeline to remove your waste as your renovation unfolds. This will avoid a buildup of rubbish that could interfere with your renovation.
Stripping the Kitchen
As the saying goes, ‘kitchens and bathrooms sell houses’. A sleek, well designed kitchen adds real value to your home and an upgrade will not be money wasted. The creation of a modern kitchen that opens to your living areas is the style that appeals to most people. To create this open plan space requires the breaking down of walls and possibly the repositioning of plumbing and electrical points. These specialized tasks will require the services of a licensed professional, but other basic tasks such as removing work tops, cupboards, chipping off wall tiles and floor tiles, can be carried out by yourself.
