When remodeling your home, you need to ensure that your input and actions do not negatively affect the smooth running of the remodeling project. What you do during the remodeling is just as important as what you do not do. The following are some tips from KBR Kitchen and Bath on what not to do in order to ensure the project continues to run smoothly.
- Do not procrastinate decision making
The best way to ensure that the remodeling project goes well is to make all foreseeable decisions before the project actually begins. Make decisions on the materials that the contractor should use, the paint, and the trim before the actual project starts. This will ensure that there are no delays when it comes to selecting your preferred materials, and the project will run on course until its completion.
2. Do not purchase the materials
Rely on the contractor when it comes to shopping for and purchasing the materials that the project requires. The contractors usually know the suppliers with the best quality and prices in the market, and thus, they will be able to get a better price on the materials. You will most likely end up spending more money if you decide to go shopping on your own for the materials.
- Do not be a distraction
Many homeowners want to ensure that everything to do with the remodeling is going according to their explicit instructions. This often involves them constantly pacing up and down the construction site, monitoring the contractors’ activities, and sometimes even talking and instructing the contractors. This is fine because it is your home anyway. However, being a distraction to the construction crew and the contractor will result in delays in the remodeling project. It might also cause some discomfort and friction between you and the crew, which can negatively affect the project.
