How to Prepare For a Room Remodel Or Addition
Sure, your professional remodeling contractor is the one who has to do all the work for your remodeling project or room addition. However, that doesn't mean you're free and clear from taking care of some basic tasks to help prepare for it.
Some of the preparation depends on the scope of the project. How you prepare for something that will take a few days as opposed to a couple of months.
First of all, make sure you're working with a professional who can give you a start and expected finish date. This will help you gauge just how thoroughly you need to prepare.
Make the Most of Your Renovations
Before your remodeling project begins, consider these tips:
- How intensive will the project be? For bigger jobs, you may want to consider finding another place to stay. This is especially true if you have young children, pets, or aging members of your household.
- If you're having your kitchen renovated, have a setup to get you through it in another room. The basics usually include a mini fridge, microwave, and a Keurig for coffee.
- If the bathroom is being remodeled, be sure you have a backup full bathroom. It may also mean getting creative about devising a bathroom time schedule so everyone in the home has access to get ready for school and work.
- Roofing work can be very loud and you should plan accordingly. Think about your pets and kids and make plans to be someplace else if you work from home.
- Avoid disaster by protecting furniture, décor, or items with sentimental value. Even the most professional remodeling contractors that minimizes the dust and uses caution can end up causing damage if you leave certain items on the walls or in the work path.
