Reasons for Removing Broken Down Sheds from your Property?
According to one financial website, the landscaping around one´s home can increase a home’s resale value by 15 to 20 percent, on average. Of course, if your yard is dominated by knee-high weeds, if your front porch is adorned with broken down appliances, and if the centerpiece of your backyard is an old, useless shed, then your landscaping is most likely reducing your property value. Old sheds that are no longer able to be used are an eyesore on the landscaping around your home. Even if you try to “hide” the shed in a corner of your property, it will most certainly be noticed by potential home buyers.
For real estate agents or foreclosure companies, getting rid of an old shed is often one of the first items on the list when it comes to prepping a property for showing to potential purchasers. For homeowners who are not actively trying to sell their home, getting rid of an old shed can also free up space in the backyard, especially if you have limited outdoor space. In a small suburban backyard, removing an old, unused shed might be the first step in building an outdoor patio, and outdoor kitchen area, or simply freeing up space for a children´s playground.
Difficulties in Removing an Old Shed from your Property
Unfortunately, getting rid of an old shed is easier said than done. For homeowners in San Fernando Valley who are considering a DIY option for old shed removal it is important to understand that you will most likely need a free weekend, a strong back, and some specialized tools in order to de-construct your old shed safely and efficiently.
When tearing down your old shed, you will most likely need some heavy power tools. Even the simplest shed designs will most likely have several braces and brackets that hold the structure together. As you take apart the roof, walls, windows, doors, and flooring, you will probably need some heavy duty tools to take those pieces apart.
Furthermore, as you tear apart the shed, you might find that your shed is severely invested with mold and mildew. For people who suffer from asthma or other types of respiratory allergies, this could be a concern. Furthermore, sheds that have been abandoned for several years may have turned into a home for snakes, rodents, wasp nests, and other animals that could pose a danger. Old metal sheds could also pose a risk for cuts and wounds.
Even if you do successfully deconstruct your old shed, you will then be stuck with an enormous pile of construction and demolition (C&D) debris that you have to take off your property. In the San Fernando Valley, you will most likely discover that the municipal waste management service will not be able to haul away your trash without first scheduling a bulky item pickup. Even then, you will need to find a place on your property to store that C&D debris until your pickup day rolls around, as well as having to haul all the heavy debris out to the curb on the morning of the scheduled pickup.
