How to Safely Remove & Dispose of Kitchen Cabinets During a Remodel in American Fork, UT
Anytime you remodel your kitchen, it can completely transform your home. Many homeowners will remodel their kitchens at one point or another. Whether it is simply out of date with current design trends or is completely dysfunctional, a kitchen remodel is exciting. One aspect of a kitchen remodel isn’t as exciting, and that is the cost of the project. For many homeowners, this means that they are going to be looking for ways that they can cut the remodeling costs down. Rolys Dumpster Rental is here to talk about one of the ways that you can cut the cost of your kitchen remodel, and that is to remove and dispose of the old kitchen cabinets yourself.
What Tools Do I Need to Remove Kitchen Cabinets?
The first thing that you will need to do is gather the appropriate supplies to get the job done. If you don’t have the right tools, it can be a lot more difficult. Here are some of the tools you should have on hand:
- Utility knife
- Step stool
- Pry bar
- 2x4s for support
Prep Cabinets for Removal
Empty Cabinets: You will need to get the cabinets ready to get taken down. This means removing all of your stuff out of them. This can be a big undertaking for someone that has lived in the house for a long time. Once you have removed all of the belongings out of the cabinets, you can also remove the shelving that is found in them to help eliminate some of the weight.
Remove Trim, Seals, & Fixtures: Now it is time to remove the trim and fixtures from the cabinets. You can use a utility knife to break the seals that help hold them to the wall since this is done just using caulking. You will also work to remove the doors from the cabinets as well.
Take Down Cabinets
Now that they are stripped down, you can unscrew them from the wall and remove them from the space. When unscrewing the cabinets, it works best to use 2x4s to help support the cabinets while you take them down. If you have people that can help, you will want to contact them as well. You will want to make sure you have rented a dumpster to help you dispose of the old cabinets and save you from making multiple trips to the landfill.
