Our team of experienced builders in Guildford understand that a building project can cause some stress, there’s no getting away from it. But here at NBC Construction, we aim to prepare all of our clients for all the trials and tribulations of starting a home remodelling project will bring. That’s why we have created a step-by-step guide for all your home remodelling questions. Follow these 5 steps and you’ll certainly feel much better equipped for any unexpected speed bumps that your home remodelling project throws at you!
Build a Detailed Home Improvement Project Plan
With any large scale project, without constant monitoring and action on detailed planning the desired project goal simply won’t be achieved. So, that is why our builders in Guildford recommend developing a plan that clearly states the goal for your renovation and includes designing inspiration and an outline of the work that needs to be completed. Save yourself the trouble, prepare, prepare, prepare!
Why not also include:
- Blueprints or sketches of your finished project.
- A list of needs and wants for your project.
- Project steps divided into steps that will require a professional.
Set a Budget
It should come as no surprise that setting a budget that is realistic and flexible should be high on your priority list. Therefore, you’ll definitely need to set a project budget and determine your finances. You should try to figure out the costs for permits and building materials, labour costs and the cost of decorations or cosmetic touches. Decide how much you want to spend and finalize financing. Set aside at least 10% of your budget for unexpected costs. Our builders in Guildford would also recommend requesting cost estimates from professionals if possible.
Build a Timeline
Now that you have a budget in place for your remodelling plan, it’s time to put together your timeline. First, choose a start date, or if you’re hoping to have it completed by a specific date, work backwards from that date instead. Sit down with your chosen team to determine the length of time each portion of the project will take. Discuss which steps of the remodel need to be completed first, how long they will take and which project portions can be completed concurrently.
