remodeling company tips for success

Home remodeling, whether it’s just a kitchen remodel or something more, is a big undertaking. Not only will your home be under construction for several weeks to more than a month, you’ll want an outcome that you love. We define a successful remodel as one that stays within budget, finishes on time and that the homeowner loves. Here are a few things we do to ensure that happens.

Plan

Planning is the most essential step. Not only do we need a formal plan of how the space will look when we’re finished, but also a plan for every step along the way. A few things we plan for that help ensure that we finish on time include:

  • A realistic timeline from the start.
  • Ordering of cabinets, countertops, appliances, vanities and everything else with cushion so in the event there are manufacturer or shipping delays we’re not significantly inconvenienced.
  • Scheduling a plumber and electrician in advance so we have them on site when we need them, not when they’re available.
  • Reliable subcontractors and crews. Sometimes we need to use subcontractors for certain aspects of your home remodeling project. When we do, we use ones we can count on to show up and do the job right.

Look at the Big Picture & End Goal

Everyone has different goals for their home remodel. Budgets vary greatly. As you and your remodeling company work through design and plans, you need to look at your end goal, but consider the big picture. If you’re trying to make your home more energy efficient, spending a few hundred extra dollars on new ENERGY STAR® rated appliances makes good sense. Sometimes raising your budget makes sense and other times it does not. Sometimes flexing on your design or timeline helps you love the finished product a bit more even with the added inconvenience. Think about how the space will meet your goals. Ask yourself if a change to your original concept or budget is going to be worth it in the end.
