If it is decided to first tear everything down and start over, more material will have to be removed. You can calculate the approximate number of cubic meters of waste in advance and rent a disposal bin based on this sum. It can be more difficult to make this estimate for renovation.

  • Renewing instead of painting can reduce costs in the long run.
  • Depending on the starting point, it may not be necessary to perform work indoors.
