Replacing An HVAC System

Many older homes in Southern Ontario still have an old HVAC system in their home that is now in need of replacement. Residents are finding that their homes aren’t as warm as they should be during the winter, or as cool as they need them to be in the summer. Their energy bills are also far more expensive and their homes simply aren’t comfortable anymore. You shouldn’t need to wear an extra pair of socks in your own home just to watch a tv show in the winter.

Putting in a new HVAC system has many advantages. You will instantly see a drastic improvement on your energy bill, your home will be climate controlled, there are many great new smart thermostats that allow you to control the temperature in any room of your house, it will increase the value of your property and your quality of life will improve. Additionally, replacing your HVAC is more than likely a one-time renovation, and once it is done, you will never have to think about it again.

When you replace your HVAC you can be certain about one more thing. Removing the old one is going to mean that you are going to have to rent a roll-off dumpster bin. An old HVAC means you are going to have a huge amount of material that needs to be removed. Additionally, that decades old system has years of old debris and material in it that has to be disposed of safely and according to the law. It is a big project, and you are going to need a large bin placed near your home in the driveway so workers can easily access it.

Ordering a disposal bin is easy. You can simply order the bin of your choosing online, and schedule a time to have it delivered. Depending on the size of your home, you will probably need more than one truckload to be removed because HVAC material will take up a lot of space in the bin, so you can schedule pickups when the bin is full. That way the material can be dropped off at the local waste management recycling centre, and return quickly so your workers have as little downtime as possible.

This spring and summer is a great time to replace your HVAC, and many contractors tend to book their season far in advance, so be sure to get your planning done early and book your dumpster bin in advance so your project happens on time and on budget.

Replacing A Driveway

Our driveways rarely get any love or respect. In fact, aside from shoveling them in the winter, and the kids using them as a chalkboard during summer break, our driveways are usually the last thing we think about, which is wrong because they are quite literally the very first thing our guests see when they arrive at our homes.

You take a great deal of pride in your home, and you want it to look its very best. You can have a beautifully manicured lawn, wonderfully curated garden and the fascia of your home can be power washed and spotless so that guests are instantly impressed with your home. However, if your driveway looks like somebody has been parking a tank on it and then using it for target practice, it will stand out like a sore thumb. You may as well have a rusted out 1979 Camaro on blocks on your lawn, because it will have the same effect on your curb appeal, and the value of your home.

Thankfully driveway renovations are a great and relatively inexpensive way to beautify your home, while adding value to your property. Spring and summer are a great time to replace your old and worn out driveway, and a professional company can usually have the job done in a few days, depending on if they are simply tearing out your old pavement and replacing it or creating something more intricate, like interlocking bricks.

Regardless of the type of makeover you are doing to your driveway, you are going to require a roll-off disposal bin so you can manage all the material and waste that will be created. Also be assured, there will be a lot of it.

Replacing a driveway means you will need to rent a dumpster bin, and you will most certainly want a big one. Driveway replacements create a massive amount of heavy, dirty waste material that needs to be hauled away to a local recycling centre so it can be disposed of legally.

You can order a bin online, and choose a time that is convenient for deliveries and pickups. You can also expect more than one truckload to be removed, so you can schedule those ahead of time as well, which will greatly reduce any downtime on the job, and help your project run smoothly and on budget.

Selling Your Home In Toronto, Ontario

Here in Toronto, Ontario, home sales are booming like Alex Van Halens bass drum and many people are cashing in on the windfall and selling their homes.

If you are planning on selling your home this summer, then you will want to get a head start on preparing it for sale, and that means you are going to have to roll up your sleeves and begin the decluttering and staging process.

Every real estate agent and home sales television show will tell you that you simply cannot avoid a home clean out if you want to get the maximum dollar for your home. Nothing turns off prospective buyers more than viewing a cluttered, lived in home that is filled with old memories, furniture and other people’s belongings. Buyers want a clean space, so they can envision their design ideas and their belongings in the home. It should look like a showroom, not the morning after a New Year’s Eve party.

The inside of your home isn’t the only place you will want to declutter. You will want to completely clean out your garage. It should be spotless and not filled with old winter tires, boxes, rusty old bicycles and bits of old unwanted appliances and furniture you don’t want but never got around to throwing up.

It follows that you will also want to give your property a good clean up with some simple landscaping. If that old shed is filled with yard junk and is beginning to show its age, then it’s time to tear it down and replace it with a flower bed. New buyers will want to view your outdoor property the same way as the inside: as a showroom where they picture themselves sitting outside and entertaining their friends, and not thinking about how they have to tear down an old basketball hoop or get rid of a broken fire pit.

Spring is almost here, and it is a perfect time to get started on these projects so your home is ready for sale in a few months. You can get started inside while the weather is still warming up, and work your way outside when the ground has thawed to tear down that shed and plant some new flowers.

All of this decluttering is going to mean that you will require a roll-off disposal bin, and we have 4 sizes to choose from. Depending on the size of your home, and how much stuff you want to get rid of, you will more than likely need one of our larger 16 yard or 20 yard bins. We can place it anywhere on your property that has a flat hard surface, and we will schedule deliveries and pickups at your convenience when it is full.

Dumpster Bin Rentals For Bathroom Renovations

Most people view winter (especially during Covid) as the most boring time of the year. Here in Southern Ontario, we are stuck inside during the winter months, while it snows and all we can really do outdoors is shovel snow and clean off our cars. Basically, it is a good time to catch up on your binge tv watching, but other than that there isn’t very much to do.

Unless of course you have used the winter months to save a few dollars and plan a spring time renovation for your home. If you are one of these clever people, then you love winter.

Spring and summer renovations are commonplace here in Ontario because renovations are a perfect way to reinvent your home, and increase the value of your property. So, depending on your budget, you can generally use the spring as an ideal time to get at least something done on your home or yard. Bathroom renovations are a great way to give a heavily trafficked room in your home a makeover, on any sized budget.

Most people love to entertain during spring and summer, and although the party may be outside, most of your guests will eventually end up inside using your bathroom once or twice.

Bathroom renovations can be completed quickly and depending on your budget, you are really only limited by your imagination. You can simply change the colour of your bathroom, and upgrade the fixtures like the sink and bathtub, or you can tear the whole room out and do a complete remodel.

Any renovation project means you will have a ton of debris and unwanted material to dispose of, so you will need to think about your waste management plan. You can’t leave all of that material out on your yard for the one day a month the city picks up large items. You will need to rent a disposal dumpster bin.

Because spring and summer is the busy season for home renovations, it is also the busiest time of year for roll-off dumpster bin rentals. That means you should book your dumpster bin early. You can order online and choose from any number of bin sizes to suit your project. Pickups and deliveries can be easily scheduled, and when the bin is full it will be hauled to the nearest recycling centre and returned so you can keep your project moving seamlessly.

A successful renovation means having everything run smoothly and on time, so pre-planning your disposal bin needs early, is a great way to save time and make sure your project runs as smoothly as possible.

Replacing A Roof In Hamilton, Ontario

The roof of your home takes a beating during the winter in Hamilton, Ontario. Year in, and year out it gets covered with snow and ice, which then thaws and cracks, refreezes and repeats the cycle over and over every winter. This takes a huge toll on our shingles and sub-roof, until after a while we discover cracks and leaks.

Replacing your roof has many advantages. It is a great home renovation for the spring and summer months because workers can get their job done easily, quickly and safely compared to the winter when your roof is like a skating rink. A new roof will look great, add value to your home and it also has environmental benefits. Even if it isn’t leaking water just yet, you can be assured that your old roof is definitely leaking hot and cold air, which means a higher energy bill. Leaving your old roof unrepaired is like trying to insulate it with fishnet stockings. It’s not going to work, and you are better off simply getting it done sooner than later so you can lower your monthly energy bills and enjoy a more temperature controlled environment.

Tearing that old roof off means you are going to need to rent a disposal bin that can be rolled off a truck, and placed on your driveway so workers can easily access it from above. You will almost certainly need a large bin because even if you have a smaller bungalow sized home, removing a roof means a ton of unwanted material and debris that has to be safely removed and disposed of at a local recycling centre.

Depending on the size of your home, you can probably expect to require more than one truckload of material to be removed, so when you order your bin online, you can schedule pickups and deliveries at time that is convenient for you. This way your full dumpster bin can be picked up, cleaned out and replaced as quickly as possible so your crew can continue with their jobs and have your new roof done quickly and efficiently.

Replacing a roof can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week or more depending on the size of your home, and most people tend to have their roofs replaced during the spring and summer months. You will want to plan ahead and get a couple of quotes from roofing companies in advance of spring, and book your disposal bin as early as possible. This way you will have all of your ducks in line when the weather warms up and the hammers start to fly.

Dumpster Bin Guide

So you have finally decided that your next project can’t or won’t wait, and you are putting the pieces together. You have found a contractor, pulled the necessary permits, planned your life accordingly and now you are here because you need a dumpster for all of the material that needs to be removed.

At this point you have decided to use Clean Er Up dumpster rentals because we’re awesome (yes, we really are and we thank you for your business), however you are trying to pick the correct sized bin for your project. You can call or email us and we will offer you a suggestion, or here is our simple breakdown of what we suggest for your next order.

CLEAN OUTS

Let’s say you are doing some decluttering like cleaning out the garage, basement or even the whole house. Depending on the room you are cleaning out, and how much stuff you have (most people tend to underestimate how much stuff they have accumulated over the years) you will almost certainly want one of our larger bins. You can choose from our 16 yard or 20 yard bins, and again depending on how much stuff you are throwing out, you can expect anywhere from 6-8 truckloads to be removed.

CONSTRUCTION

If you are planning a home renovation, addition or large scale construction project we strongly advise you to simply skip right over the smaller bins and order our 20 yard bin. Construction projects produce a massive amount of material and debris, and many of those pieces like wall framing are large pieces that won’t fit into a smaller bin, so it is best to go for the largest of our bins and expect roughly 12 truckloads to be removed.

ROOFING AND SHINGLES

Roofing and shingle replacement is fairly common in Southern Ontario because our winters tend to be rough on our homes, which means we usually need to replace our roofing every 20-25 years. These projects created a lot of debris so depending on the size of your roof, we suggest that you choose our 16 yard or 20 yard bins. They can handle all of the material easily and you can expect roughly 4-5 truckloads to be removed.

LANDSCAPING

Our clients are always amazed at how much material is removed during a landscaping project. Even a small project like simply re-sodding your lawn produces a massive amount of debris. For example, imagine rolling up all of your existing yard, plus a few layers of soil, rock and other sediment and then fitting it all into your garage. See what we mean? Therefore, we suggest that you order either our 4 yard or 10 yard dumpster for your project, and expect roughly 6-10 truckloads to be removed.

CONCRETE AND DRIVEWAY DISPOSAL

Are you digging up your old driveway or removing a large concrete slab, like a patio? If so you are going to need a 4 yard dumpster bin and expect anywhere from 6-8 truckloads to

Planning A New Patio For The Spring In Burlington, Ontario? We Have You Covered.

In the film Field of Dreams Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner hears a strange whisper that says “If you build it, they will come.”

Hey thanks stranger and your disembodied voice, but what am I supposed to build?

A barn?

A zeppelin?

A statue of Gord Downey?

If you live in Burlington,Ontario then you already know the answer, and it isn’t a cornfield. It’s a patio.

Canadians love patios. It doesn’t matter what city or province you live in, we have a universal love of our patios, and we take a huge amount of pride in them.

Our patios are an extension of our homes that tend to only get used and enjoyed in the string and summer. That is probably what makes them so special to us. When springtime arrives, and we thaw ourselves out, we are able to go outside after months of being stuck indoors like stacked cord wood, we can finally get outside with our friends and family and enjoy the warmth of the sun with a cold drink and bbq.

Most homeowners who are planning a new patio, or who are tearing out an old one and replacing it tend to do it as soon as spring arrives. You can always hear the saws and hammers on the first nice day of spring as homeowners everywhere waste zero time getting to work on their patio. We only have a couple of months to enjoy them, so we want them done right away.

Building a patio is a great way to open up the living space of your home, and increase your property value. Additionally, even if you are doing it as a DIY project, they aren’t terribly difficult to execute if you have some previous construction skills. You can find full scale plans online with detailed lists of all the tools and materials you will need to buy or rent, and step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the process. You will just need a weekend with good weather, a few buddies who know how to swing a hammer, use a skill saw, an auger and can pour some concrete. Sounds easy enough right?

One thing that is frequently overlooked is the amount of unwanted material and debris from a patio project, especially if you are tearing down an existing one and replacing it.

Construction and home renovation experts always put dumpster bins at the top of their to-do list because they allow their workers to do their jobs in a clean, uncluttered and safe workplace. This greatly helps the job run more smoothly, and for it to be completed on time.

One of the most common things we hear from even seasoned DIYers is they underestimated how much debris and material is created by a patio project. For first timers, it always greatly exceeds their expectations. We suggest that when you are in the planning stages of your patio project this season, you contact us with details about your project and we will help you choose from one of our 4 bin sizes which you can then order online. We schedule deliveries and pickups, so we can drop it off and remove it at a time that is most convenient for you. This will help your project run as seamlessly as possible, and be completed on budget so you can get to what is important, enjoying your new space with your buddies and family who helped you build it.

Landscaping Bin Rentals In Ancaster, Ontario

Springtime is landscaping time here in Ancaster, Ontario, and homeowners all across the region are currently planning their spring landscaping project.

Let’s begin by saying that “landscaping project” is a very broad term that can mean many things. It can mean putting on a new deck, or tearing out an old one and replacing it, or putting in a pool, creating stone or concrete outdoor architecture, digging new gardens, re-sodding your lawn or even trench excavations. You could probably even include repaving your driveway on that list.

While all of these projects may vary in size and scope, we can tell you from years of experience that every landscape project means an absolutely huge amount of dirt, rocks, stones, concrete and other debris to be removed. We cannot stress enough how much dirt we will have to haul away for something like putting in a new pool.

For example, consider the measurements of your new pool, then consider that it will be anywhere from 10ft-18ft deep. Now think about all of that soil, bedrock and loose debris in your living room. It won’t fit. In fact, it probably won’t fit in your entire main floor.

Since you simply cannot take that amount of dirt and dispose of it on your property like Andy Dufresne spreading around some concrete wall in The Shawshank Redemption, you are going to need our largest 20 yard dumpster bin, and you can probably expect us to haul away roughly 6 truckloads of soil.

The same can be said about a smaller project like creating a new garden and re-sodding your lawn. These are very common spring landscaping projects that create a massive amount of dirt and debris to be removed. To once again use the living room analogy, think of your entire lawn in your living room. It won’t fit, so again, you will want our 20 yard dumpster bin and can expect at least 4 truckloads to be removed.

We offer these examples as a helpful guide so you know what to expect when you hire us to provide a dumpster bin for your next project.

Landscaping projects are very common among homeowners in Ancaster, Ontario, but they aren’t something we tend to do every year, so they aren’t something we are immediately familiar with and the logistics involved with them.

A successful project is one that is carried out as seamlessly as possible and on budget. If you are tearing down an old, worn out deck and replacing it, you will have many moving parts to consider. You will have workers doing their jobs, materials being delivered, people coming and going and of course, a lot of material and debris to be removed.

We suggest that if you are planning a landscaping project this spring, that you get in contact with us and tell us the details. That way we can offer you our very best advice on what size bin you will require, how many truckloads you can expect and have a better idea of the cost and scheduling of your deliveries and pickups. This will help make for an easier and seamless project that will help keep you on time and on budget.
