While remodeling your home may seem like a lot of work, the project doesn’t always have to be stressful. A deeper knowledge of the project, as well as some major planning, can help ensure a smooth remodel.
The first step is looking for a professional contractor you feel comfortable working with. Reputable remodelers like Handyman Connection® of Butler Warren are adequately equipped with the right tools, skills, and experience to make your remodeling project as stress-free as possible. Here are some other things you can do to help the process along:
Stick to the Schedule
Staying on schedule is one of the best ways to ensure a successful and low-stress remodel. To do this, your contractor must be willing to create benchmarks before the actual construction process. Benchmarks usually include framing, electrical and inspections. Share a calendar with your hired team and check in as benchmarks continue. Try to keep track of these benchmarks. If at least two are missed, you may need to talk to your contractor as this could derail your timetable and budget.
Oversee the Flow of Money
The more motivated your team is, the less stressed you will be. Paying them in small installments as work is finished can help ensure a more satisfactory project. We recommend paying them no more than 10% up front, as any reputable contractor would be able to get everything your project needs with this initial payment.
Let Your Contractor Do Their Job
Keeping tabs on permit deadlines, booking appointments and other meetings can make the project more stressful than it is for a homeowner. This is why you hired a contractor in the first place. Let them handle all the necessary approvals and permits. As experienced professionals, they are able to deal with these things faster and more efficiently. Additionally, these will take things off your to-do list without messing with your schedule.
