Here in Southern Ontario, our winters can be ferocious. The wind, the ice, the freezing temperatures all wreak havoc on the exterior of our homes. Over time our roofs need replacing, our driveways need to be dug up and replaced, our decks begin to fall apart and our fences eventually need an upgrade. Thankfully these projects only happen every 10-20 years, but when they occur, we have to bite the bullet and get to work.
Spring and summer are naturally the best times to begin these projects. Aside from the weather being far more conducive to working outside, we don’t have to contend with things like snow and ice removal or frozen ground. Also, it is far easier to talk a few friends into helping you during the spring and summer with the promise of a few cold pops and a BBQ when everything is done.
There are many reasons to replace an old, worn down fence, or upgrade from your current one. You may have a chain link fence and therefore almost no privacy. Plus you may have a neighbor who enjoys sunbathing in his Speedos during the summer, and nobody wants to see that when the in laws are visiting. Or ever really. If this is the case, then you will love your new privacy fence.
If your fence has seen better days, then you will want to make this your project this spring or summer. You can have a beautiful home and wonderfully landscaped garden, but if your fence looks like it has been used for target practice, then not only does it diminish the work you have done on your home, but it also drastically lowers your property value.
Thankfully putting in a new fence is a straightforward renovation project, and there are many great companies that will do it for you for a reasonable price. Most of them are busy during the spring and summer, so you will want to book one early. Additionally, replacing that old fence means you are going to need to rent a roll-off disposal bin to remove the old pieces and transport everything to a local recycling centre. Much like fence builders, dumpster bin companies are very busy during the warmer months, so you would be wise to order a bin online early, and prearrange a time for it to be dropped off and picked up. This will help your project go quickly and smoothly so all the unwanted material can be easily collected and removed so workers aren’t impeded by piles of debris.
Renting a roll-off disposal bin is a vital component to any home renovation or construction project, because it keeps your work site safe, clean and free of unwanted material. Everything is disposed of according to the law in a recycling centre and you can book pickups and deliveries at a time that is convenient so you have one less thing to think about and can put your energy into the project itself.
