While we all want to do our best to achieve our dream home and boost the value of our home, and this can often involve a major remodel or two, remodeling your home can often be a trying time. From working with your contractor to compromising between your budget, goals, and actual space, to living in a partially unfinished house that can look a mess, big projects can be very stressful. However, Capital Remodeling is here with some helpful tips to help you get through as smoothly as possible.
Leave If You Can
While for complete gut renovations or a seriously major remodel you will have no choice but to leave, many choose to stay if only a single room is being renovated. However, if you choose to stay, be sure to seal off dust-free areas with public sheeting. If you have children, it is key that you have strict rules in place banning dirty shoes in clean areas. If you are staying through a kitchen renovation, set up a temporary kitchen somewhere else in the house.
Be A Team Player
Choose architects, interior designers, and other professionals you like and trust early on. Be communicative and available to them, but also trust them to do their jobs without micromanaging. The best results come from a competent team of professionals who have the space to do their best work, but plenty of clear direction.
Have Extra Money Stashed Away Beforehand
It is not uncommon for other problems to be found once builders actually began hacking away at your house. Often unforeseen issues due to age, or mistakes by earlier builders are found and need to be corrected. Major renovation often takes longer than initially planned, and costs more than initially expected due to these issues. Budget at least an extra 10% for these contingencies from the get-go. It is recommended to set aside even more than that for unexpected roadblocks.
