Before You Start Any Building Work Make Sure You Do These Essentials

Posted in Skip Services by Skiphire UK on February 13th, 2015

If you’re planning on doing some building work in Wales, then there are a lot of considerations to take into account. From budgets to waste disposal (and with skip hire in Cardiff and the whole country available from Skip Hire UK, we’ve got you covered!), you’ve got a lot on your plate.

Pre-Building Work Essentials

Whether you’re renovating a room, updating your business premises or adding an extension to your home, there are some essentials that everyone should follow. Taking these steps into account will make your project go much more smoothly!

Before you pick up the sledgehammer and start knocking down walls, get planning permission. Check all the legal stuff too and remember to dot the I’s and cross the T’s. It’s vital to check all of the rules and regulations before any work begins. You don’t want to be fined or be in legal hot water for something you missed so be thorough so you’re prepared for any eventuality.

Next, sort out waste disposal. This is where Skip Hire UK comes in. We offer reliable and affordable skip hire in Cardiff. But we don’t just cover the capital; our service is available across the whole of Wales! Skip Hire UK can offer a variety of skip sizes and each container will be delivered and collected at a time to suit you. We’ll also ensure that we’ll recycle as much of your rubbish as we possibly can as well. Get in touch today for a quote and we’ll take it from there.

So you’ve got the legal side down and arranged the disposal of your waste. What’s next? If your planned work will affect your whole home, you may want to find alternative accommodation! Either camp down with friends of family or head to a nearby hotel.

Costs and budget are vitally important for jobs great and small, as is planning a thorough schedule. If you don’t want to spend all of your time and money on the planned works, make sure you budget accordingly and set a suitable timescale. This includes everything from skip hire to tidying everything up at the end.

Tied in with budgets, make sure you finalise all of your costs. When dealing with tradespeople, you want to make sure you’re going to pay what they’ve quoted. Finalise all costs before building work begins to avoid getting stung with hidden charges and costs.

Insurance is something that you should also be taking into account. Certain home policies will be affected by building work. Check and re-check yours to make sure you know if any exclusions apply. If needs be, consider taking out some extra insurance if you feel the works will be a tad risky.

Finally, double then triple check your plans! Even something as small as an extra zero on measurements could prove very costly or even disastrous. After all, this is your home or business premises! You don’t want anything untoward to happen so be thorough in your preparations!

Of course, don’t forget to tell your neighbours. We know how noisy building sites can be. There’ll be quite a lot of noise and disruption so remember to keep those around you informed of what’s going on.
