When working on a home remodeling project, there are several dos and don???ts that can help you avoid unnecessary delays and ensure satisfactory results. Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling, as an experienced remodeling contractor, shares the top four don???ts that will significantly affect your project.
Don’t Work Without a Contingency Fund. A contingency fund serves as your shock absorber in case of emergencies. This is 20% of the total amount of expenses added to your budget. While most homeowners are skeptical about preparing more money, a contingency fund isn???t always used. It???s important to prepare a contingency fund, as unexpected expenses can significantly delay your project and lead to more costs.
Don???t Delay Your Decisions. If you want to minimize the delays along the way, it???s important to make all the decisions before construction starts. When you work with us for your home remodeling project, we can talk you through the different situations that may come up during the project. The problem is, while we can help you handle these, most delays stem from small decisions like paint color or trim and faucet selection. While these seem like minor problems, a delay in your faucet choice can set back your project by up to one week.
Don???t Live at Home. ??Living at home while construction is ongoing has two major drawbacks. One, your daily life can be??disrupted by the noise??and the construction team entering and leaving your home. Two, you and your family have to avoid workspaces. ??This can be a challenge depending on what part of the house is being remodeled.
Don’t Ignore Your Home???s Style. While it???s exciting to try all these new designs and styles during a remodel, be sure to choose what works best for your home style. An expert home improvement company like us can help you choose which looks complement each other best, while still allowing your personality to shine through.
