How to Make it Through Your Home Remodeling in Denver

July 19, 2017

Remodeling is a great way to increase the value of your home and modernize outdated rooms. But, remodeling means part of your home may be under construction for weeks or even months, depending on the extent of work being done. In order to reap the benefits of home remodeling in Denver, you will have to make it through this somewhat frustrating process by following these tips:

Schedule frequent meetings.

If you’re worried about how long your project will take, ask your contractor to provide you with a progress update either every week or every other week. This will ensure that you are notified of any issues that are causing delays in the completion of your project.

Make sure you have one quiet room.

Are you doing major remodeling around your home? Make sure that you have at least one room that won’t be affected by the construction. Everyone needs to have a place that they can escape to, and this room can be yours.

Set rules with the contractor.

There will be workers coming in and out of your house during a remodel, so it’s important to schedule ground rules with the contractor before the project begins. Which entrance do you want the workers coming in and out of? Where are they allowed to sit when taking short breaks? Which bathrooms will they be allowed to use? Go over all of this information with the contractor as soon as possible so you can control what goes on in your home during the remodel.

Put your valuables away.

Before a remodel, it’s recommended that you go through your home and move all of your valuables into a safe place. This will ease any concerns you have about your valuables being stolen, misplaced, or damaged during the remodel.

Be prepared for the unexpected.

Leave a little wiggle room in your budget so you are able to cover unexpected expenses that pop up during the remodel. How much should you set aside? Experts recommend that you have about 10% of the total budget put aside to cover the unexpected. So, if your original budget was $10,000, it’s recommended that you put $1,000 aside.

Rely on small appliances.

If your kitchen is being remodeled, you may find it difficult to cook meals for your family. Instead of wasting money on going out to dinner every night, learn how to make meals with the small appliances in your kitchen that can be moved out of the construction zone. Look up recipes for meals that you can make using only a crockpot, microwave, or toaster oven. This will help you survive your kitchen remodel without breaking the bank with expensive restaurant food. See 20 kitchen remodeling tips here.
