What To Expect During Your Home Remodeling Project
So, you finally did it. You decided to take on a new home remodeling project. By now, family and friends have probably offered friendly advice about what you should or should not expect during a home remodeling project. Some of this is no doubt helpful, while much of it is contradicting. So, what should you expect during your home remodeling project?
Clutter and Dust
During construction, your home literally becomes a work site. The extent to which it does depends on how big of a remodel project you had planned. Two of the main problems you can expect to grapple with during this time are clutter and dust. If there are people in the household with respiratory illnesses, it may be a good idea to relocate until the remodeling project has been completed.
Another factor you may not have prepared for is construction noise. Even if you relocate away from home, it’s a good idea to warn your neighbors that some work will be taking place at your residence. If you are on good terms with your neighbors or would like to be, try to negotiate the best hours for the louder machines and hammering to take place.
Remodeling projects can end up costing both more time and money than you originally budgeted for. Because of this, professionals recommend setting aside roughly 10 to 20 percent of the overall budget for contingencies. Keep in mind that going over budget may sometimes be out of the contractor’s control. Here are some instances where this is possible:
- Finding termites or signs of rotting
- Noticing wet spots or leaks
- Natural disasters
