Whether you’re remodeling to add much-needed upgrades or you have to rework parts of your home due to storm damage or fire damage, there are steps that you can take in advance to ensure that the remodel goes smoothly. Follow these tips from Maven Restoration Group and have a successful remodel for your home or business!
Finding the right company to handle your remodel should be a combination of price, services, reviews, and the ability to execute. Some remodeling companies only handle the physical work of the remodel. While this is obviously an important aspect, having a company that can help you make design choices can help the project overall. You should also inquire about their network of contractors to address certain issues, such as plumbing or lead abatement in older homes.
To ensure that items around the area that’s being remodeled aren’t moved without purpose or recollection, prepare the area ahead of time by decluttering and cleaning. This will help you get rid of the old while making room for the new. It might even inspire you to do some spring cleaning in other areas of your home. It will also help contractors easily access the space while keeping your belongings safe.
Remodels can get messy, especially if reconstruction or new construction is required. That’s another reason why it’s important to clean the area first so that your possessions don’t become covered in a layer of dust and debris. Remodels also tend to be noisy, with the use of several power tools and hammering going on at once. On the one hand, it means that your remodel is going along efficiently, but on the other hand, it means that you’re going to have to put up with some noise for the duration. Try to schedule outings during times that the contractors will be at your home or be prepared to do an activity with earphones.
Even with the best preparation, unforeseen circumstances often arise during remodels. Sometimes contractors will open the wall or remove a bath fixture only to find a thriving colony of mold that will require mold removal from a qualified company. Another possible scenario is that water damage has impacted the structure too much, and unexpected reconstruction will be required, which will add to the project’s overall cost. Being aware that you may have to make decisions on these possibilities will help you navigate them easier and prioritize your budget and goals.
