Once you have hired your builder, their task can be underway. Have a skip nearby and ensure that the rest of your house is protected, especially if there are any surfaces you don’t want to receive scratches or dust on. You will most likely also need electricians and plumbers on the renovation team to ensure that none of the already installed electrical and plumbing work becomes damaged, and to help with the installation process later on.
