Renovations Aren’t for the Faint-of-Heart

Updated: Feb 19

Renovating your house can be disruptive to your daily routine and life. Construction going on inside and outside the home, dust, tools, a working crew, can feel less than ideal. Renovating is messy, yes, but it’s also a good thing!


Here are our tips on surviving a home renovation and how we can make it easier on you.


Plan and Plan Some More

Start with the scope of the project. Whether it’s an addition, interior renovation or both it’s a good idea to sit down with us to discuss wants and needs, budget, as well as what can work within the constraints of the home and property. You can’t control old plumbing or old construction, but you can control the new design, how it impacts your daily life and how your new space will look once it’s complete.


Choosing the Right Contractor

We can help supply a list of qualified contractors who are the right fit for your project. A good contractor will know how to minimally disrupt your daily life if you plan on staying in your home during renovations.



Schedule & Timeline

Once a contractor has been hired, it is important to come up with a timeline to have the work completed. During home renovations your living areas will be impacted so a good construction schedule is imperative and can lessen the shock of daily disruption.



Patience

Renovations take time so going into the process with an open mind and heart is key to getting through construction. We are with you every step of the way to ensure your project is being built on time and according to the construction plans.


Good things come to those who wait!
