Building an addition, whether it’s a sunroom addition, a second floor, or you’re simply doubling the size of your kitchen, the steps to a successful and seamless build is just the same as that of a new one.
This means you’ve got to have a solid vision. And to turn this vision into a reality, you’ll need to be a couple of steps ahead.
You’ve probably heard the horror stories of contractors leaving the project half-finished, or worse, the city council flags your project for one or two code violation issues. You don’t want any of that.
Your dream is to have a beautiful and functional space without having to throw all your money down the drain.
So, to avoid such disruptions here’s what you need to do to stay ahead:
- Plan and plan – everything that goes sideways often starts with poor planning. So, get a plan, gather all you need, figure out your budget, and ensure your contractor and yourself are always on the same page.
- Get the right contractor – part of a good plan is making sure your contractor is trustworthy and has all it takes in terms of experience, skillset, licensing, and even insurance. So, do your research and go with the best.
- Acquire all the needed permits – working with a reliable contractor also ensures the contractor is aware of your area’s building codes and has acquired all the relevant permits before he even breaks a wall of your home. Don’t allow your contractor to work on your project without the proper licenses; less you want the project delayed for months.
- Be clear on the project timeline – once you’ve had your plan, your contractor should be able to set a general timeline for each part of the project. However, some unavoidable delays, such as weather elements, might hinder your timeline. Having a general timeline will help counter avoidable delays.
Here’s the thing; sometimes shit happens, some disruptions and delays you never see coming, no matter how much you plan. However, working with a reliable and trustworthy contracting company is what you can control.
