A whole house remodeling project is a massive and expensive undertaking, so make sure that you prepare yourself (and your home) to the best of your ability. What exactly should you expect during a home remodeling project?
Even with the best possible precautions, dust will still find its way around your home. Closing off the construction area with temporary walls, air filtering systems, and blocking vents in the construction area can help prevent the spread—but they cannot completely stop it. Make sure that you work hand in hand with your home’s HVAC company before you block or close any vents to ensure that your system won’t be damaged in any way.
Especially when you are having a whole house remodeling project, expect a lot of noise during the workday. Whether you hear saws, sanders, nail guns, or hammers, you will definitely be hearing a lot. If you work from home, consider moving your home office for the duration of the home remodeling project. If you don’t think it will be an issue, trust us—you would much rather be somewhere else!
Even if you have a relatively new home or did a thorough inspection beforehand, expect the unexpected. The unexpected can be a minor issue that is fixed easily, a surprise delight underneath your hardwood floors, or a major issue that causes days of setback. Factor the unexpected into your budget so that when surprises pop up during your home remodeling project, as they undoubtedly will, you can be prepared.
Reconsidering Your Budget
Even if your contractor does a good job of factoring extra costs into your budget, you might need to reconsider as issues pop up during the process. If you are not used to writing big checks and investing in your home, prepare for some anxiety and nerves writing out four and five digit checks to various people during the process.
