Renovating On A Timeline

Renovating On A Timeline: Managing Home Improvement Projects

When you start a big project like improving your home, you will want to know how long it will take from start to finish – or at least have a good idea. Renovating on a timeline can be difficult to calculate since home improvement projects are notorious for not going according to plan. 

Expecting the unexpected is the first – and most important – piece to managing your home renovation venture.

As experienced home renovation professionals, we can advise you on situations that might arise to slow things down. Keep reading for information to aid in your preparedness!

What Types Of Unexpected Events Should I Expect?

It’s a fact that you can only control some aspects of your home renovation; there are far too many factors and trades involved. Here are just a few situations you should be ready for:

  • Products being on backorder, like kitchen cabinets or a particular tile that’s out of stock, which prevents them from being delivered on time
  • Subcontractors running behind schedule due to their working on another project
  • Bad weather, which can affect outdoor projects like building a deck, constructing an addition, or installing a new roof
  • Unexpected problems, like mold or rotting wood inside the walls, which can’t be detected until the demolition starts
  • Not choosing materials on time as the homeowner, which delays ordering and delivery schedules

Will My General Contractor Be Able To Renovate On The Timeline?

An experienced contractor will know to build extra time into the project to allow for unforeseen delays. They will do their best to deliver your project on time, but you must remember that even the most experienced contractor can’t control everything. All they can do is be prepared and help you be prepared, too. 

Engaging a professional general contractor and their team ensures you’ll get the best outcome possible.
