These areas need more planning beyond the traditional architectural plan, whether you have to plan around an awkward shape, window placement or specific kind of space, such as a basement. These spaces require much different renovation designs. For example, basements need waterproofing, sealing, moisture protective materials and intense lighting to change the space around. There are also specific considerations when remodeling, such as debris removal, clean-up, home insurance and security systems.

If your remodeling project will have you tearing down siding, handling hazardous or non-biodegradable materials, or throwing away a lot of wood and old furniture, then you'll need a debris removal service.

You also want to make sure that you are using environmentally friendly methods of disposal.
