Whether you’re knocking down a wall in your home, or looking to change your bathroom, you’ll need to know a few things before you get started. It will be a messy project and it is best not done alone. Here are some tips to help you out.
- Have a visual plan. You don’t have to be a skilled artist to draw a basic layout of what you have in mind. Writing down measurements will help keep you on track. The last thing you want is to destroy too much!
- Get your tools ready. Some tools you’ll need may include a hammer, a chisel, a crowbar, a utility knife, and some good working gloves. You can either buy them from a local tool shop or order them online. If you know someone that already has these tools you could ask to borrow them.
- Hire a skip or a grab lorry. Like I said before, things will get very messy, so you’ll need to clean up as you go. Depending on the size of your project and the amount of material you’ll need to get rid of, you can hire a grab lorry or skip. I recommend Grab Lorry Hire Gloucester. Something to keep in mind is that if you hire a skip, you’ll need a parking permit but with a grab lorry, you can park them on the side of the road.
- Ask friends or family to help or hire a professional. DIY demolition projects can be hard work and very tiring, especially if done alone, so it’s best to do with others.
Hopefully this advice has helped you have more of an idea of how to do a DIY demolition. Good luck with your project and remember to follow these tips if you want to avoid mistakes.
