The decision to remodel or renovate your home isn’t one you’ve taken lightly. You’ve put a lot of thought into what you want to have done, as well as your budget. Despite all the best planning though, there still can be bumps in the road. What can you do to ensure a smooth home remodel? Check out our expert tips!
If you’re doing a full home remodel, you might be considering living through it. And while the idea of packing up and relocating for a time might seem like a lot of work, your “normal” life will absolutely be disrupted living through a home renovation. A renovation crew will start early in the day, will be in and out several times throughout the day, causing noise and disturbance, especially if you’re still working from home. If relocating during the reno is too much for you, it may be time to reconsider the scope of your project.
If you decide to live in your home while the remodel takes place, set up a construction free zone. While we don’t enter spaces we aren’t working on, having a space that’s taped or cordoned off gives you a space to be without the stresses of a living construction site.
As with any large scale remodel, work crews may be coming and going throughout the day. This is where a lockbox or a smart door lock will save you a headache. With these pieces, your construction team will be able to let themselves in and out, while maintaining security for you and your family.
The thing that you really need to keep in mind with ANY renovation is that it’s a journey, and with any journey, there are highs and there are lows. Trust the process, and trust the plan that you’ve made and you’ll see your way to the end.
