Whether you work with a general contractor or act as one on your own project, it is important to be prepared and making sure you are covering every detail during a home renovation. By following these tips, you will ensure that your project goes more smoothly and with less stress.
When getting ready to renovate your home, having a plan and ensuring that you have inspected every detail can be incredibly beneficial to the smoothness and speed of your renovation. Ask licensed contractors about proposed schedules. If you are renovating on your own, without professional help, create your own schedule so the project doesn’t drag on too long.
It is important to make sure you are considering the time it will take for every little detail of your renovation to be completed. This includes demolition time, potential delays, appliance shipping time, and other anticipated tasks. Doing this will help make sure that you are controlling the time of the project, not the other way around.
If you plan to carry out this project by yourself, understand that though most tasks can be done smoothly and easily on your own, but other more difficult and intricate tasks might require a contractor that has training and specialized experience. Hiring someone like Georgia Interior can save you time, money, and the hassle of difficult projects.
IN a recent study, the biggest regrets from completing a home renovation came from expanding on and renovating rooms without fully understanding the true extent of the task. Considering every angle, detail, and making sure you are aware of everything that will have to go into your renovation will help you to complete tasks quicker and more efficient. This will also help plan a budget and prevent any surprises later on.
Costs of materials, inspections, and contractors can add up. Make a budget That includes extra, unexpected costs that can turn up. If you plan to spend more, you will save yourself some panic is extra costs turn up, it’s always better to be pleasantly surprised by spending less money than expected.
The last thing you want is to finish your project only to find that you missed something and have to redo it or even start again. Make sure you find out any rules and regulations for your projects, including building codes and inspections, before you begin.
Home renovations can add up to be an expensive project and if you can save money on something as small as light switch covers, all the better. Don’t fail to compare prices on everything. It may be tedious, but you will thank yourself later.
Whatever you do, don’t start a remodel without a detailed floor plan. A lot of elements interact in a space — put them all on paper and you’ll catch problems before they are built.
If you want your remodel to go well, the best thing to do is make every single decision before work starts. A good builder can talk you through the list of situations that might come up on your job, but decisions about situations aren’t usually what cause delays. Instead, most of the issues are related to decisions about things like paint, trim, and faucet selection. These may seem small, but when your faucet is two weeks late, plumbers have to be rescheduled and the medicine cabinet door hits the faucet when it’s installed, you’ll see how something small can balloon into a week’s delay on a five-week project.
Ever and his team were extremely professional, yet very friendly, well organized, and efficient. The scope of work ended up being much larger than we expected (plumbing leak) but he and his crew completed everything and even ended up doing some extra work for us as well. Ever was very fair and extremely flexible when it came to negotiating the cost of those projects.
Georgia Interior & Exterior Contractors did an amazing job designing and building our new deck. The project was completed on time and under budget! Employees were honest, professional and very clean. Ever was really a pleasure to work with! They really cared about what we wanted, listen to us and did an unbelieveable job! We have received many compliments on the finished product. We highly recommend without hesitation Georgia Interior & Exterior Contractors to anyone who asks.
Ever Castro was extremely professional and courteous from day one with the onsite estimate for my window replacement, to the calls prior to the installation day and the installation itself. Ever and his associate were on time, mindful of generating as little damage to the existing window frame and prompt with cleanup. I was very happy with the final results and would definitely recommend him to prospective clients. Thanks again Ever!
Because I had several projects, he was willing to bundle his pricing. It was great and a huge seller for me. He came 30 minutes early, worked through some unforeseen issues with my home, offered to go to the store to gather replacement items then finished install. He was professional the entire time (and so was his assistant). I will be using him and the services in the future.
Castro was excellent. He arrived on time for the appraisal and he arrived on time for the actual work. He completed the work 1 day ahead of schedule. His work and that of his three man team was exceptional. At various points of the install, he checked with me to make sure he was doing as I expected. This morning he followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied with the job. I am extremely satisfied and will use Castro on a few upcoming handyman jobs as well. Highly recommend this professional!

Licensed and Insured. The last thing you want is a remodeler to be working on your property, only to find out they don't have the proper insurance or aren't licensed to do the work, because if something goes wrong or someone is hurt at a work site, you could be held liable for the damages. Make sure that the remodeler you choose has ample worker's compensation, property damage, and personal liability coverage.
References. The best way to ascertain if the remodeler you choose is skilled and competent enough to do the job is to ask for and verify a list of references consisting of past customers that you can contact. Customers that get what they paid for and who are happy with the job your remodeler has done for them are usually only too happy to provide an endorsement on the remodeler's work. Choose me, and before long you'll be on our reference list!
