A lot is involved when it comes to remodeling your home, especially if you want a finished renovation that is quality and to code. It’s important to do your research and fully prepare before jumping in! Unfortunately, there is a lot of false information out there about what you should do prior to your remodel. Here are 6 home remodeling ‘precautions’ you may be intending for good that could actually cause big problems throughout your project:
1. Not planning out the entire project from the beginning. Planning your project is a huge factor as to whether or not it will be smooth and successful. You might feel like you’re getting ahead of yourself by making all of your decisions upfront, but doing so prevents issues and delays throughout production. The sooner decisions are made, the sooner materials can be ordered and schedules can be created. There are a lot of parts and pieces involved, and things like backordered products or unavailable professionals can cause a lot of stress and wasted time – all of which can be avoided if proper planning takes place.
How a design build firm can help: The benefit of working with a design build firm instead of just a general contractor is that all of the planning is done for you, at the beginning of the project. At Medford Remodeling, we start planning from the initial consultation, and ensure that the client is aware and involved in every step of the process.
