4 Things NOT To Do When Remodeling Your Colorado Home

8:19 AM

When going through a home renovation, there are expectations of both the Colorado remodeling contractor and the homeowner. Often times, the homeowners instincts can negatively affect the progress of the project. So how do you know if you're helping or hurting your Boulder, CO home remodeling project? Be sure to avoid the following when remodeling your home:

1. Delaying Decision Making.

If you want everything to run smoothly, you need to make decisions in a timely manner, typically in advance of the work being started. Most of the issues during a remodeling project come from the homeowner delaying decisions about paint, trim and faucet selections. While these may seem like small decisions to a homeowner, think about everyone involved on the project. When your faucet isn't ready, the plumber has to reschedule. Try to make your decisions as quickly as possible to ensure your Colorado home remodel is completed on schedule.

2. Continuously Changing Your Mind.

While some changes are inevitable, it's important that you don't change your mind too often during a remodeling project. Every time you change your mind, there will be added time and possibly added costs. Scheduling can be affected as well because everyone working on the job needs to be informed of the change and their duties involved. When making changes, even minor ones, just be aware of the potential delays involved. Avoid continuously changing your mind and your project can remain on schedule.

3. Having No Contingency Fund.

In the majority of home renovation projects, you're going to find that the work you wanted costs more than you expected or budgeted for. This is why you should always have a contingency fund set aside. However, you don't want to dip into that fund the stretch your budget. By making decisions ahead of time and trying to stick as closely to your budget, you'll avoid eating up your entire contingency fund and will have that cash to cover anything unexpected that comes up.

4. Distracting the Contractors.

Think about it: every minute the Boulder, Colorado remodeling contractors are talking to you, they aren't working on your house.  Make sure the conversations you're having with them are pertinent to the remodeling project. If it's not impacting the job, you should avoid talking to them about it. In addition, you'll want to keep children and pets away from the construction site, not only for their safety, but so they're not distracting the contractors either.
