If you’re about to embark on your first home renovation, you will need help. Basement, bathroom, and kitchen renovations in Calgary need the expertise and oversight of a professional general contractor. Their job includes managing subcontractors, ordering materials, and guiding the project to successful completion. However, the best general contractors also help you understand the remodelling process. That way, you know what to expect and can relax while your contractor transforms your house into the home of your dreams.
Here is how Rouse Projects in Calgary can help first-time remodelers.
1. Establish realistic expectations
Home renovations in Calgary are complex projects and can be confusing for first-time renovators. So, it’s important to establish realistic expectations before construction begins. One of your contractor’s first tasks is to help you understand each project phase. Then, you can align your goals, determine your priorities, and prepare for the renovation process.
2. Create a clear road map
During the consultation, your contractor will walk you through the entire renovation process. You can ask questions, deepen your understanding, and continue to form realistic expectations. With the help of your contractor, you will get a clearer idea of the different renovation stages. In addition, this is a good opportunity to communicate your design goals so they can be worked into the overall plan.
3. Address potential problems
Renovations are like life- sometimes things go wrong. Sometimes there might be a few bumps along the way. Part of setting realistic expectations is preparing for those unexpected hiccups. Your contractor will address potential issues you may encounter along the way- and how to deal with them. Any problem can be solved with good communication, a calm mind, and an experienced contractor!
4. Prepare for curveballs
On the theme of expecting the unexpected: prepare for curveballs. Your contractor will do everything possible to keep your project moving on time and within budget. However, this isn’t always possible. Weather, labour shortages, supply chain issues, and global pandemics can disrupt your home renovation. In addition, your contractor may discover mould, water damage, or other serious problems once demolition begins. When you set out on your first home remodel, be prepared for it to take a little bit longer and cost a little bit more than you expected.
