Home Improvements That Require Skip Hire


We all love to carry out home improvement projects, which make life more comfortable, while also adding to the value of the property. Of course, when planning a project at home, you do need to make sure you have all bases covered and here are a few projects that would require skip hire.

  • Kitchen Renovation – Those old kitchen tiles are no use to anyone and skip prices in Knaresborough are as cheap as any other part of the UK. You will likely be changing the cabinet doors and the old ones would be another item for the skip, not to mention the old mortar and plaster you’ll be ripping out.
  • Building a Patio – Regardless of size, you will have a lot of topsoil to remove; make sure you have a wheelbarrow and a plank to run into the skip, Best to check with the skip provider to be sure that this type of waste can be put into their skips, as some will not accept soil and building rubble. The supplier can help you calculate how much waste you need to remove.
  • Installing a Wood Burning Stove – Many UK homeowners have discovered to warmth and cosiness of a wood burning stove and a small skip would be required for the portion of wall that has to be removed and if you don’t have a chimney, a flue must be installed, which would generate more waste.

Next time you need to hire a skip, make sure that the provider recycles the waste is a responsible manner, reducing your carbon footprint.
