A remodeling job is something that can make any homeowner struggle, especially if you need to live in your house during the remodeling process. When the remodeling is contained to one area of the house, you are more easily able to work around your remodeling job and maintain a semblance of your normal lifestyle. However, during whole-house remodeling, you need to figure out a plan so you can survive the remodeling process! At Installations Unlimited, we have been helping homeowners like you complete whole-house remodeling since 1979 and would love to give you a few ideas on how to prepare for your whole-house remodeling.
The best thing that you can do before your whole-house remodeling is research, research, research! The more that you can research before-hand, the better off your project will go. Make sure you research the contractor that you are choosing, when permits need to be pulled, where you will be staying if you aren’t staying in your home during the remodel, etc. You’ll also want to have a clear timeframe and décor decisions made before you start your whole-house remodeling.
The next thing you’ll need for your whole-house remodeling project is to make sure your finances and family are both in order. For finances, you’ll need to make sure that you have a budget as well as a contingency fund for unforeseen expenses. As for your family, make sure children and pets are considered during the remodel. Additionally, you and your partner (when applicable) need to go into whole-house remodeling knowing that it can be stressful and that the process may impact your relationship.
