Planning for a home renovation project is an exciting venture. There is a sense of anticipation in knowing your home will be given new life. However, the excitement begins to fade when your scheduled timeline starts to fall apart at the seams. Unreliable contractors, hazardous weather conditions, and unexpected costs are just a few of the crises that can affect your time schedule. And if project manager isn’t currently your title, then be prepared to get a hands-on lesson in Project Management 101.
Before embarking on a home renovation project, it’s important to do your due diligence when it comes to researching contractors, vendors, and products. You want to be sure of who you’re hiring, where your getting your supplies from, and the quality of the materials you’re spending your money on. We’re fortunate to live in a time where information is at the tip of our fingers. Take advantage of the internet to search through company and product reviews.
When you make your selection, provide your contractor with a thorough description of your project. Ask for a detailed quote, even if it costs a few bucks, to ensure an entire breakdown of the job that is expected to be completed. Often, homeowners will ask for additional services (such as adding extra outlets or rearranging original blueprints) that aren’t listed in the original quote. Keep the communication open with the contractor and find out what additional charges would apply. If it is worth it, add on the extras. If not, forego the nonessentials and stick with the original plan.
Another factor to consider is the inconvenience you will encounter while your home is being torn apart and reassembled. Basically, you’ll be living in a construction site until the process is complete. People will be in and out of your home causing wear and tear on your property. You may want to factor in the cost of outside bathroom rentals. Having a construction toilet on site will save not only your bathrooms, but your septic system as well.
At A Royal Flush, we offer outside bathroom rentals that include everything from standard units to VIP restroom trailers. Customers who rent a restroom and provide contractors with a construction toilet end up adding an invisible layer of insurance to their own bathroom facilities. At the end of the day, it’s your home, your project, and your hard-earned money funding the operation. The more prepared you are, the less stressful and more rewarding your home renovation will be.
