We’ll Be There For Your Major Home Renovation
This is a big step. You’re renovating your home? Yeah, that’s a big step. Whether you’re doing this all by yourself, becoming the unofficial king or queen of DIY, or hiring a contractor and construction crew to do this – this is a big step. You’re going to be customizing your home, renovating a place to suit you, wow how personal is that?
Don’t worry. Don’t panic. You won’t end up like that friend of yours who keeps starting projects but never actually finishes any so their house ends up looking a bit like a construction site. Listen to me: take a deep breath. You will not end up like that person.
Home renovation in Edmonton can get very intimidating. Whether you’re redoing a room to get the perfect look, adding rooms, taking down or building walls, or taking on even bigger changes – it gets intimidating. Depending on the project, you could be looking at something very costly in terms of time and money. With these simple tips, you can make things a bit easier as you get closer to your dream home!
1. Set a budget and plan ahead. You will save so much time and prevent delays if you shop around for materials for the whole project before even beginning. This will also stop you from making bad decisions when you run out of materials. Plus, you will be able to keep the rest of your life on track, despite what’s going on in your home because you’ll have a schedule. Planning ahead will let you know the big picture about what you’re doing – how often it will need repairs, if it’ll save you energy costs, that sort of stuff. Think out your plan before executing it, it’ll save you from a lot of stress in the long run.
2. You don’t have to do this by yourself. Unless you are a carpenter or contractor by trade, you’d probably want to hire professionals to help you. Even if it seems simple, trust us, without the proper know-how things can get very complicated, very fast. Shop around for a good contractor. This means looking for experienced firms, inspecting their work, and ironing out every detail of your contract. You will get what you want, the home of your dreams, if you are meticulous with the details. Set a start and end date in the contract, so you won’t expect delay but instead receive competency.
3. Have a safe place. When your home is a construction site, it isn’t easy. Before you get things going, imagine if you can live without a kitchen/bathroom/bedroom for a while or with a big hole in the side of your house. For most people, that’s not really an option. Think about staying elsewhere while the project goes on. Your life will go a lot smoother if you don’t have to deal with the noise, dirt and inconvenience directly.
These are just a few things you can do. You’re taking a big step, but it doesn’t have to be a scary one. Do your research, read articles like this one. You’ll be prepared. We wish you the best!
