Home Repair and Remodeling Process
Your home is a major investment, so you want to do everything possible to protect it while maintaining its value. When you plan for home repairs and renovation projects, there are several steps to take to achieve those goals. it’s essential that you understand the process and are comfortable with the impact doing repairs and remodels may have on your household. When you choose Emmons home improvement services, we can help manage every part of the process.
Determine the Scope of Your Home Improvement Project
The first thing that you should do when you consider starting a home remodel is get a clear picture of your objectives. It helps to understand the purpose behind your renovation: maintenance and repairs or aesthetic enhancements.
For instance, a recent storm may have torn your siding or caused a leak in your roof. In this case, you may want to renovate your exterior before the problem gets worse. On the other hand, your home may simply be older and out of style, so you want to freshen its appearance with new doors, windows, shutters, gutters, or trim. Either way, these home improvement services can add value to your home.
Prioritize Needs and Wants
Once you have a clear vision of what you want the home improvement services to accomplish, you can begin the planning process. Most homeowners make the mistake of having unrealistic expectations and not being honest about what they can afford. To avoid this, you should make lists of your must-have and like-to-have items.
For example, must-have items are those that you need in order to accomplish your vision, and the project doesn’t make sense without them. These might include replacing damaged or worn siding, roofing, doors, or windows. Like-to-have items are those that you can live without if they don’t fit into your budget, such as a new gutter system even though your current one still functions well. Budget permitting, you might consider listing dream items, such as adding screening material around your covered porch.
Determine Your Home Remodeling Budget
With your priorities narrowed down, you can get more specific with your budget. The key to creating an accurate budget is to be realistic and detailed about your financial limits and how much that your project will cost. Keep in mind that several factors affect the cost of home improvement services. Some expenses that you should expect include permits and licenses, demolition and waste, consultant and design charges, and labor costs.
Additionally, unexpected issues are common in remodeling projects, so experienced contractors plan for them. You never know what could be behind a panel of siding or underneath old shingles. Because of that, it’s important to set aside at least 10% of your budget for those surprises. Doing so will help you avoid spending more than you can afford.
Take Your Time When Deciding
No matter how fast that you want to complete a renovation, most home improvement services take longer than you think. However, it’s crucial that you don’t rush your project. Take your time setting a budget and planning every detail. A good rule of thumb is to choose a month when you want to start the remodel, ideally six months after you begin planning it. Planning ahead like this will give you plenty of time to research the products and materials so that you know what you want and what will fit into your budget.
