Things to Know About Home Restoration
Home renovation is an exciting yet complex project that you need to carefully plan to pull off successfully. With that in mind, there are also a few things you need to know about the restoration process itself. Your restoration professionals at KAT Constructions, LLC discuss things you need to know and keep in mind during your upcoming home restoration project.
Expect Things to Get Dusty
Anything that involves construction and restoration will result in dusty living conditions for the duration of your project. This is especially true if you’re doing repair work on the larger parts of your home, such as the roof, exterior walls, or the floors. You can certainly control this though air filters and coverings for the furniture.
Restoration is Noisy
From the hammers pounding on the roof to the screeching of the saw, expect a lot of noise from your upcoming restoration project. We recommend staying somewhere else during the project as not even the most specialized earplugs can block out the construction noise. Give your neighbors a heads-up that your full service restoration company you’ll be working with is going to generate a lot of noise for the next few days.
Expect the Unexpected
As cliche as it sounds, you should always expect the unexpected during the restoration project. In many cases, there will be hidden damages in your home that you may have glossed over during the budgeting stage.
This risk is why we recommend giving yourself a bit of allowance when you’re budgeting your renovation project. This is more or less an “emergency” fund in the event you need to do more work.
Delays are inevitable but can be worked around, so long as you “expect” it. While this may seem a bit pessimistic, knowing that something is beyond your (and your contractor’s) power makes you more resilient to delays and changes in schedule.
