Keeping Your Home Liveable, All Remodel Long
Remodel work is very dirty. And certain phases of the remodel process are VERY dusty. Many homeowners (and many contractors) simply shrug and chalk the dust up to “the Remodel work is very dirty. And certain phases of the remodel process are VERY dusty. Many homeowners (and many contractors) simply shrug and chalk the dust up to “the way it is”. You shouldn’t settle for a contractor that will tell you “that’s the way it is”. You deserve a contractor that will treat you and your home with respect, all remodel long. Let’s talk about some of the ways that North Light Builders will protect your home during your remodel.
Keeping Your Cabinets Damage-Free
At North Light Builders we head off these issues at the start of the project by covering the cabinets with board and plastic. This keeps dust off the cabinets and stops errant tool belts from banging up the cabinet wood. Kraft paper or RamBoard (depending on the situation) is then used to cover the countertops.
Whether they are new to your remodel, or existing cabinets: they should be protected and covered. This is often overlooked by contractors until the inevitable scratch or ding in the cabinet wood is discovered. Then the blame game starts.
These precautions save the finger pointing that happens after damage is discovered. It also shows respect for you and your home during the remodel process.
Isolating the Work Area
We take our reputation very seriously. We have a reputation of protecting our customer’s homes from dust and debris. Using temporary plastic walls and temporary self-sealing doors.
Check out this video from a home renovation project we did in Battle Ground a few years ago. This was the first time we had the chance to use our new magnetic sealing temporary doors. It was a great thing to have because the work we were doing in that area was grinding stone: it was incredibly dusty. Fortunately the ZipWall door held up like a champ and kept all of the dust isolated to that area.
As you can tell from the video, we were pretty excited about our new door.
