What’s the top thing to consider when hiring a contractor?

Do your research and make sure you’re choosing someone who can handle your project from start to finish. This includes demolition, rebuilding, and everything in between. Make sure they have experience with every aspect of your project, from cabinetry to counter installation to tiling. You also want to work with a company that specializes in bathrooms and kitchens so you know they’ll have the experience you need.

What’s the most time-consuming part of a remodeling project?

There are a lot of steps to installing tile and many factors to consider. You must make sure that all the patterns are installed correctly, you have to keep an eye on each tile to make sure it’s level, square, and placed the way it’s supposed to – and you often have thousands of tiles to place in this way. As you can imagine, it’s essential to choose a company that has plenty of experience with this intricate work.

What can a homeowner do to prepare for the first day of remodeling?

There are two things a homeowner can embrace to have the best chance at success: Planning and flexibility. Homeowners need to have an idea of what they want but they should also be flexible. Sometimes what they want won’t work within their budget, or won’t work with the current setup of their home. Being flexible can yield the best results.

There are also a few preparations a homeowner can do. First, they can find a spot for the contractors to get set up. This might be in the yard, on the driveway, or in part of the garage. We need a spot to set our tools.

Another good idea is to create a path from the entry way to the room being remodeled. Depending on your kitchen or bath design, we may be bringing in drywall, bathroom sinks, and other large items. You may want to roll up rugs, get furniture out of the way, and remove artwork. However, we can always do this for you as well.

Finally, get rid of all of your belongings in the room we’ll be working on. For example, if you’re having your kitchen cabinets replaced, you’ll want to move all your dishes, pots, pans, etc. from your cabinets and store them safely until we’re done.
