Surviving A Home Renovation
You have chosen an excellent contractor or designer. The team will come in to do the job on Monday. You can hardly wait to see the refurbished kitchen, new hardwood floors, or the living room freshly painted.
But one thing can get your enthusiasm dampered — the task itself.
Dust. Loud noise. Renovation debris. Workers track dirt from and into your home. All of this can create an unpredictable feel for the renovation.
That’s why a discussion with your contractor or designer is essential before the work begins so you understand how will the work be done, and so some ground rules can be defined.
Here are some critical issues.: What are the names of the team members? What time do they work? If you’re not on site, who will be in charge of the group? What measures are you taking during the project to decrease dust and dirt at home? At the end of every day, is the work area cleaned? Which policy does your team make for on-site smoking and eating?
Responding to these questions in advance will help avoid unpleasant surprises. If need advice on prepping your house for sale, please feel free to call us at 401-396-2888. We’d love to help!
