What to Expect When Remodeling Your Home

First, Expect Disruption

Making the decision to remodel your home can be exciting and nerve-wracking all at once. Here are some helpful bits of information to help you feel both prepared and aware of what to anticipate.  Choosing a contractor can have a lot to do with cost and reputation, but it is important to find one that you mesh with. Home remodeling means lots of planning, coordinating, and communicating, which often means you will be seeing your contractor regularly. It is important that you feel you can connect and communicate well with each other. 

Any time renovations are taking place, it is inevitable that dust become a temporary house guest. Although we use a dust-control system, which makes a significant difference, we aren’t going to lie, dust has a sneaky way of making itself at home. 

Getting the job done requires collaboration with other professionals aside from your contractor.  Tradesmen, and carpenters may be coming in and out of your house periodically to do their part. Your contractor will be coordinating with them as to when they can and should be in to do their job, so know that you may see a new face here and there. 

The Project is Not Finished Until It’s Finished

The anticipation and excitement of a finished project is something you may anxiously be awaiting, however all good things take time. The quality of the work that is needed to complete the project you are wanting requires time and attention to detail, which is exactly what we will provide. You may be looking for obvious progress at the end of each day, but it is important to understand the behind-the-scenes tasks that often don’t boldly show themselves. Things such as small sheetrock repair, paint touchup, tile caulking, and cabinet pulls. These small details make for complete quality end results.

Regular Updates and Consistent Communication

Communication is key, and you should expect regular and consistent updates regarding your home from the project foreman in charge of the remodel! As a client, it’s important to know what is going on with your home and the projects that are taking place. This information can range from schedule changes, inspection information, as well as when other tradesmen contractors will be arriving to your property. This type of information should be reassuring and also is imperative to ensure that you are comfortable within your home the best you can be as these projects are underway. 

A Clean Job Site

Last, but most definitely not least, you can expect for the job site to remain as clean and safe as possible during the duration of the project. Garbage should remain limited and cleaned up at the end of the day, and should not be piled in and around the home. Tools should be properly secured and removed to avoid the potential of safety hazards. We know that renovations make a mess, but it’s important that we keep this as mitigated as possible.
