Home remodeling projects are complex and time-consuming. They can cause undue stress to homeowners. This is why, for home remodeling services, it’s imperative that you work with a premier contractor with a proven track record like J Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build.
Here are some common things that can go wrong during home renovations that you can avoid when you work with us.
Cost often brings stress to home renovation projects. Having your bottom line struck by a makeover misfortune doesn’t help. Focus more on framing, concrete, drywall, roofing, windows, and doors rather than aesthetics. A good mortgage broker can help finance your project. After the project, get an assessment of your renovated home. It will allow refinancing which can include your other loans and credit cards.
Ignoring the Contractor’s Track Record and Insurance
Only hire design build firms with a proven track record and insurance coverage. Our policies include both general liability insurance and workers’ compensation. We have all the relevant documents on permanent records. Without the latter, workers remodeling your home could sue you if injured. Your liability insurance may cover injuries, up to your limits. But it’s best to avoid the situation altogether.
Renovating Without Permits
Permits are the law and apply to all property owners, and they also protect you. Most permits relate to fire codes or seismic requirements. Your city hall will help you start the project with all the necessary permits. Later, city inspectors will come to ensure the work went well.
Not Anticipating Roadblocks
Unfortunately, renovations rarely go according to plan. Be ready for the unexpected before you start. It’s wise to pad your budget and timeline from the start. Leave around 10 to 15 percent extra in the budget and pad the timeline by at least two weeks. Find the custom home building services that always stick to the schedule and budget.
