Planning a home improvement project in 2020?

2 min read

With many people making new years resolutions and pledging to exercise and eat healthily, why not give yourself the gift of a clean, modern home and make a start on your home improvement project?

Make sure you have a plan.You’ll need to know what you’re going to do, how long it will take and what’s involved – not to mention the cost of it. Here’s a guide to help:

Decide on a project

Even if you have several potential projects in the pipeline, you can only tackle them one at a time. Work out the logistics for each and prioritise which jobs need doing first and which can wait. In doing so, it’ll be easier for you to get things done without making more mess than you need.

Decide what’s involved

Whether you’re redecorating your living room or building an extension in the new year, you need to think about the task in hand. Will you need the help of contractors or is it a job you can do yourself? Something else to consider is what you’ll do with the waste materials generated from your project. You could either bag everything up and take it to the local tip, contact the local council and ask them to collect it, or hire a skip.

Set a budget

Once you know what you’re doing, you can then work out the cost of your home improvement project and in turn, set aside a budget. If you don’t stick to a budget, you’re likely to encounter a few problems along the way and this could impact on the quality and speed at which your project is completed.

Hire a skip

Home improvement projects can be messy (to say the least) and having somewhere to put unwanted items will prevent them from making your property an eyesore, as well as eliminate the risk of accidents on site. Skip hire Preston removes the hassle of queueing at the local tip – helping you to complete your project sooner.
