Tearing Out the Old Stuff

The scope of the project determines how much demolition you will need to complete.

If you are simply doing a swap out of cabinetry, flooring or other fixtures, you will basically be removing, replacing and redecorating. The job gets more complicated if you are replacing windows, doorframes or knocking out a wall.
  • You will need a dumpster to haul away old material to a landfill. You will have to schedule delivery and pick up to meet your needs.

  • If you are enlarging a room, you will be removing the adjacent walls so you must empty that space also.

  • Removing cabinets and fixtures requires turning off water and electricity. Plan carefully so you have the utilities turned off for the shortest period of time.

  • Remove any electrical fixtures and install wire nuts on the ends of the wires back in to the electrical box so they're out of the way.
