– Know Your End Goal

Are you renovating to raise the resale value of your home, or will you be staying put for years to come? Having a specific plan in place for your future will help you decide how deep to go with your project.

-Consult Your Calendar 

Be sure to plan for a few weeks to a month timeline to ensure you have wiggle-room for delays.

Pack up 

Declutter, cover, move, or pack up any items in the work area. This ensured all your belongings are secure and clean during the process.

-Plan for Outages

Plan for outages. Many times, the water, electricity, or both need to be shut off for a period. Whether it’s only a section of your home or throughout. Floods and electrocuted contractors will put a very abrupt halt to your project. 

-Keeping Track

Keep a job file, including contract, plans, specifications, invoices, change orders and all correspondence with the contractor.

-Most Important

Keep the lines of communication open between you and the remodeling contractor and the work crew. Ask questions. Let them know what your family schedule is and whether you have pets confined somewhere. Make sure you have specified how—via phone, in-person or via email—and how often you wish to communicate with your remodeling contractor about your project. 



A successful project requires planning and preparations from both the homeowner as well as the contractor. Before our work even begins, we ensure that any personal items you haven’t stored away are removed, applying masking, taping, and tarp of all work areas. Dust/debris shielding are put up, papering paths to protect flooring, and take any other measures to ensure your personal items are kept safe and clean during the project. We also make sure to clean, wash, sweep, or shop-vac at the end of each day.
