Home remodeling should be fun and exciting, not stressful or painful. So what can you do to make sure your experience is a positive one? Read on as Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling, shares some easy tips:
Hire a Trustworthy Contractor
The first step is hiring a professional remodeling contractor you can trust. Reputable remodelers like Case Design/Remodeling have the skills, knowledge, and experience to deliver outstanding results every time. To make sure you???re hiring a quality contractor, ask friends and acquaintances for recommendations, read online reviews, and interview several candidates yourself. You want to choose a company that is both highly recommended and that makes you feel comfortable.
Stay on Schedule
Staying on schedule is one of the best ways to ensure a low-stress remodel. To do this, your contractor must be willing to create benchmarks before beginning construction. Usual benchmarks include framing, demolition, electrical, and inspections. Share a calendar with your??team and check in on progress periodically.
We recommend intervening if at least two benchmarks are missed. One missed benchmark allows contractors to make up time, but two could derail timetable and budget. Working with trusted home improvement company like us makes staying on schedule a breeze.
Control the Flow of Money
The more motivated your team is, the less harried you will be. Paying them in small installments as work is finished to your satisfaction can help ensure a less stressful project. We recommend paying them no more than 10% upfront. Any reputable contractor should be able to obtain all the necessary supplies for your project with this initial payment.
Let the Contractor Do Their Job
Don???t micromanage your contractor. Skip the homeowner self-work affidavit and let your contractor handle all the necessary approvals and permits. These will take things off of your to-do list without messing with your schedule.
