The Remodeling Project Checklist

Have everything ready for your next remodel!

It is time to plan for your spring remodeling project - the prime time season to get your home renovated! However, the planning phase doesn’t simply end with the financing and purchasing of products and having the crew install them - all homeowners must have a solid understanding of the ins and outs of the project that may affect them in the coming days. We have compiled a list of steps to take in readying for your next project, all of which are vital to your personal and financial well-being!

Know your project from every angle and gain an understanding on the costs!

1. Research the logistics

You need to have an understanding of the scope of your project and know the long-term return on investment (ROI) it will offer. This affects the cost of materials, labor, and even equipment that weigh into the full price.

2. Have a budget in mind

You as a homeowner must look out for both workers’ compensation and liability insurance, since a remodeling project can be a dangerous job if something goes wrong! A certificate of insurance should ease your nerves of any risk of being responsible in the case of emergency.

A home remodeling project matters for the whole family - be sure everyone is on board with the lifestyle adjustments during the install!

3. Adjust your schedule and routine

A home remodeling project requires heavy considerations on how you will function day-to-day as the installation takes place. You will have to discuss with your family members topics such as: what areas to refrain from entering, what activities can continue to go on, or even what time to wake up and pay mind to the work about to be done. Note this is largely dependent on the scope of your project - in some cases you know you can keep your normal routine like no work is happening above you!

4. Keep all your valuables and furniture secure

Be it interior or exterior remodeling, there are vulnerabilities in places you may not expect. In the event something does go wrong during the project, insurance is there to help cushion, but you will always want to be one step ahead and secure your belongings from getting in the way of damages.
