Are you preparing to remodel your home? Once you have budgeted and contacted a remodeling service all you have to do is wait for your remodeling project to be scheduled. Once the schedule date has been determined, the next step is to prepare for the remodeling process. Many homeowners never think to prepare for a remodel. However, if you are remodeling a kitchen, bathroom, garage, or even the entire home, what will you be doing and where will you put your stuff while the home is being remodeled? To help answer this question, Bath Vision and Texas Home Solutions will share how to properly prepare for a remodel.
Where to Stay During Home Renovation
Before the remodeling is scheduled to begin, there are many steps you need to take to be prepared. One of the first things you will need to determine is whether you will be staying at home during the remodel or will you stay with friends, family or rent a hotel room? If you plan to leave your home during the remodel, you will want to make necessary arrangements. If you plan to stay home, how will you make the remodeling comfortable for all of the household members as well as the construction crew? Depending on the site of the remodeling, you may be without a kitchen, bathroom, or the entire home. Often remodeling can be done in phases, especially if the household will remain home during renovations. Plan a strategy for your remodeling and make plans that will keep you out of the way of the construction crew.
What to Do with Furniture & Belongings when Remodeling
Another major consideration is where to store personal belongings while renovations are taking place. Depending on the remodeling site, you will need to remove furniture and personal items and store them out of the way. During major renovations, the homeowner may need to rent a storage unit or find a place to store their items. If some areas of the home will not be disturbed by the remodeling directly, they still need to be covered. During remodeling a lot of dust will get kicked up and spread all throughout the home. To help keep dust out, tape the edges of doors and seal them so dust can get in. Additionally, cover furniture with sheets to help keep them protected from dust.
Construction Laydown Area & Staging Plan
After you prepare your home by removing personal items, furniture, and setting up makeshift living environments, the next step is provide space for the construction crew to set up. The construction crew will need space to put materials, tools, and equipment. Additionally, power will need to be supplied, especially for tools that are used outside. As the homeowner, you need to determine where you want the construction crew to set up and where to put supplies. Along with the setup of a construction site, another consideration is parking for the construction crew. Depending on the neighborhood, parking can be a challenge. Perhaps the construction crew needs to park their vehicles near your neighbor. Let your neighbors know about your remodeling and what to expect concerning construction parking.
