Remodeling your house is not an easy project. You have to deal with lots of things in order to achieve the best result. One of the main things to think about when you start to remodel your house is all the junk that is generated from doing so. Those piles of rubbish will pile up, and it will make your remodeling project harder. How can you deal with this then? Well, what we recommend is to rent a dumpster. You’re going to need it, and it will make your work easier.
How big of a dumpster should I rent?
The first question people usually ask themselves is how big should the dumpster be. It’s a very good question. When you measure a dumpster, you do it in cubic yards. So, as you go on with your project, it will be interesting for you to think about how many truckloads of material you will be tearing out. By doing this, you will have an approximate idea of how big a dumpster you will need. Here we are going to give you a rough estimate:
• 10 cubic yard unit – 3 truck loads
• 15 cubic yard unit – 4-5 truck loads
• 20 cubic yard unit – 6 truck loads
Typical sizes for most projects
There are many projects you can do at your home, but there are some projects that are done more than usual, so these kinds of projects are the most common ones.
For example, small bathroom remodels. You will not need a big dumpster in order to do this kind of remodeling. With just a 10 cubic yard unit, you will be fine. A small bathroom will not leave a lot of waste, so renting this dumpster will be enough for you. If you plan on remodeling something bigger than a small bathroom remodeling like, for example, a large kitchen or a large bathroom, the best would be to have a 20 cubic yard dumpster. This way, you will not have to worry about packing your dumpster, and you will have enough space to make your remodels with an ease of mind.
There are more uses for dumpsters, not only remodels. If what you plan to do is a big cleanout in your garage, then you will probably need a 10 or 15 cubic yard unit. If you’ve been piling junk for many years and your house is considerably big, then do not hesitate to go for the 20 cubic yard dumpster.
One of the main reasons to get a dumpster would be a complete demolition project. Let’s say you want to tear down an old garage. You will need the biggest dumpster for this. Demolition projects usually leave a lot of junk, that is why having enough space to deal with all this junk is essential. If you are working in a tight space, you will need freedom in order to move around and to all you need to do. That is why instead of piling all the junk in different places, getting rid of it would be much better. It would allow you to move freely and work in your project more easily.
