Remodeling your home can be a fun and exciting undertaking. However, if you’re not a home builder, you may not be sure where to start. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we can help! Our home remodeling professionals are passionate about guiding clients like you through the home renovation process. In the meantime, here are five steps to planning a home remodeling project to consider—
The first thing we recommend doing when you’re planning a home remodeling project is to start off with a budget. If you don’t develop a budget first, chances are that you’ll get carried away in all the things that you want to do, only to then realize that those things cost more than you can afford. Knowing how much your pocketbook can handle in advance will allow you to set realistic parameters and goals for your home remodel.
The second thing to think about when planning a home remodeling project is your vision for the remodel. Where in the home will the remodel be focused, and what do you want it to look like when it’s all done? Make a list of everything you’re thinking and make sure to share it with your contractor.
Finding the right contractor for the job is the number one most important thing you can do when planning a home remodel. Look for a contractor that has experience in the type of remodeling projects you’re pursuing, has a good reputation, provides free quotes, and is within your budget.
Once you’ve hired a contractor, now’s the time to share your vision for the remodel and work with the contractor to develop full blueprints and specifications for the remodel. This should be a process in which you’re very involved, and may take a lot of back and forth to finalize. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want or ask to see something different. Contractors will appreciate it more if you are clear with your expectations during the design phase, rather than requesting changes once construction has commenced.
Once the blueprints are finalized and the timeline is set, it’s time to pack up your home and prepare for the remodel! Depending on what part of your home is being remodeled, you may not be able to stay within the home during parts of the construction phase.
