How to Plan and Schedule Your Whole Home Remodeling Project from Day One
Remodeling your home isn’t just some simple task that you take a weekend to do. It’s much more involved than painting a few rooms. A whole home remodeling project may open up your floorplan, create a 3 bedroom 3 bath home out of a 4 bedroom 2 bath home, or build an office space where a formal dining room once was. The idea behind remodeling your whole home is to increase the functionality of each area of your home without compromising the flow of traffic or air.
How to Plan Your Whole Home Remodel
The choice to remodel your entire home is a big one because of the disruption to your home and the financial investment. Choosing the right contractor is your first step, because every Chicago area builder does things a little differently. Your ultimate goal is to find one that you get along with well and that you believe will satisfactorily reach your goals in a timely manner. You need a contractor who can:
- Provide proof of previous work. Pictures are just ink on paper until you can verify that the contractor in question has actually performed the work. Request references and check them out on social media. Ask friends and family for referrals.
- Show you their business license and proof of insurance. The construction crew will be working inside your home; you need to be able to rest easy in knowing that their insurance will cover them should an accident happen on the job.
- Answer all of your questions to your satisfaction. A good builder will be able to talk to you and explain the ins and outs of the project.
