In Real Estate location is said to be the key for success. During a renovation project communication is that key.
Here are a few tips for a successful renovation project.
- Start a Project Journal.
Keep notes for design options and personal choices, but also to track the crew’s daily and weekly tasks and objectives.
- Expect Messes.
Speaking with your contractor about the weekly flow of work enables you to plan for moving furniture and covering items to keep the dust off. This will also prepare you if a particular project task will effect respiratory issues like asthma.
- Prepare for Delays
Weather and materials are two variables that can slow your project. Communication regarding the schedule and weekly plans is vital. A 1 day delay can easily turn into 3-4 days or more.
- Prompt Payments
One of the best ways to get quality work out of your contractor/ construction crew, is to make them enjoy working for you. That means being decisive with the contractor — and promptly paying at the agreed-to points in the project.
- Enjoy the Design Choices
It’s your home, and you should love the finished product. We have had owners change designs choices, and even paint colours part way through. Life is what you make it, and so is your renovation. Don’t be afraid to speak up if you need to make a change.
