When it comes to renovating your condominium complex, we know you aren’t surprised to learn this is a large-scale project that takes a lot of planning and communication to see through thoroughly. In multi-family real estate, there can be a lot of extra factors to consider when making any updates with multiple units, residents, and extensive planning involved.
Whether you are looking at painting your entire condominium complex or find that it’s time to replace old roofing on multiple units, at Ascension General Contractors, we are giving you a few tips to keep in mind through the process.
Things to Consider When Renovating a Condominium Complex
Keep Residents Informed
As with any multi-family real estate, keeping all parties informed of any renovations happening and the timeline of the project is always important. Make sure to email all residents of the units to let them know what the project is and how long it will take. This ensures they are well informed and you keep relationships strong by including them in the process.
Get an Accurate Timeline from a Contractor
It is extremely important that an accurate timeline is established before starting any work when it comes to renovations. Especially when dealing with multiple units, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve received a timeline from your contractor in writing. This ensures that there is clear communication on what is to be expected. It can be difficult when projects drag on, and when you have multiple residents involved. There is extra stress added to get the project completed in a timely manner. So make sure to avoid that by establishing the timeline clearly, early on, and in writing.
Get Multiple Bids from Contractors
The last tip we want to share with you is making sure you reach out to several contractors for bids. A large-scale project like this is one you want to be done well and within the budget you have for the project. Acquiring multiple bids helps you find the best fit for the job and helps you see what you are paying for. Remember to always leave a little room in your budget for unexpected expenses as well.
