How to Plan Your Summer Remodel
Summer is the perfect time to start your remodeling project. The warmer climate is more suitable for completing exterior window work and other tasks.
As a result, the total job will be done in cleaner conditions without snow or rain. And most importantly, your remodeling project will be ready to enjoy during the holiday season! If you are already convinced, the following are some pointers when preparing for your summer remodel.
Working with a Planner
Planners are a must if you want your project to be completed from start to finish without any hiccups. Of course, you can plan the project yourself, but the remodeling process is guaranteed to run much more smoothly with the help from a pro. A planner can provide input on how to work with your space, as well as estimate the costs involved in the project to avoid any surprises. A planner will be your most trust source on remodeling advice, so choose wisely.
You will likely want to hire a team of contractors to complete the remodeling. You can research different contractors and request quotes by describing the type of remodeling you hope to complete. After speaking with various contractors, you can narrow your options down and select your favorites to meet with them in person. When looking for a contractor, you’ll want to ensure that they have a solid reputation and that they are reliable. You can do this by looking at their website to see their completed projects. You might also want to consider reaching out to some of the contractor’s former clients. Lastly, it’s important to remember that you will want to make sure that you receive everything in writing with contractors, including price estimates and specific materials used. This prevents any confusion from arising in the future.
Choosing Your Materials
Once you’ve hired your team, it’s time to choose your materials, such as your paints and stains. A planner can advise you on what materials are best for what and what materials are the most popular. Similarly, a contractor can also assess your space and provide their input on the most appropriate materials. On your end, you can also look online or through home renovation magazines to craft your vision for your remodeling project. Providing photos to your planner will also help them get an understanding of exactly what you are looking for so that they can provide you with further recommendations.
Don’t be Influenced by Price
While you definitely want to create a budget for your remodeling project, you should not let costs be your deciding factor. Often, higher quality materials will cost more because they are more durable and long-lasting. So, you may be tempted to save immediately on costs, but think about the impact it might have long term.
