Whether your home renovation project is being done on a bigger scale or something smaller, it is crucial that everything goes to plan (or as close to plan as possible). In order to be 100% certain that this happens, we here at iRemodel Home Renovations have come up with some helpful advice so you can go about your next project feeling confident and fully prepared to get everything done right the first time around.
1. Research is Vital
If you’re looking to focus on one factor more than anything in the remodeling process, research is by far the thing you need to be working hardest on. This is especially true when you plan on hiring a contractor, as you need to be able to clearly communicate your vision so it comes to life as best as possible. This is also a great time to have discussions with people in your life who have already dealt with renovation projects. This way, you can learn about any of the hurdles they had to possibly deal with, what to look out for, and how to go about it.
Make sure to do some online research as well, looking into different renovation ideas according to the style you want to implement. Research is also a crucial tool when looking for the right contractor as well. Look at prices/services from a number of different contractors, and compare them to find the best deal (that simultaneously matches your renovation needs). This step can be a lot of hard work, and can often become a little stressful but you will thank yourself later when your project goes according to plan (and sometimes even better than expected)!
2. Make Sure You Have All The Right Permits
This step ends up being overlooked by many homeowners looking to redesign, but have you heard about it/planned around it? If not, it is very important that you do, because if you forget it can lead to pretty negative consequences for your project. Things such as legal charges/fees, orders to tear down what you have worked on and a high risk of danger to those inside the home are just a few of the things that can go wrong when you don’t obtain the right permits. To make sure that you get the right permits for your project, discuss this information with a professional contractor or contact your local municipality for all of the details about your regions’ building codes and regulations.
3. Hire The Right People For The Job
As we briefly mentioned in our previous point, hiring the right people is important in having a successful remodel done. A few of the things you should be comparing/looking into include:
- The years of experience a company has.
- Their reviews, and whether or not they are positive.
- How much they charge for their services.
- Their portfolio works on their site/social media (what projects have they worked on in the past, and do they align with your vision?).
- Their online presence (including social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook).
- The documents that verify their business (licenses, insurance, certificates, etc).
Once you have taken a good look at all of these aspects and found the business that has the best deal/benefits, you can sit back and relax knowing you have the right team to work alongside your renovation goals.
