Complete Home Renovations

Complete home renovations are exciting—and stressful. On one hand, renovating your entire house is going to give you a home that you love and that works perfectly for you. On the other hand, there’s a lot to think about!

Here are just a few of the things you need to consider at the start of your project:

  • Which layout will best meet the needs of your household?
  • What appliances do you want in your kitchen? (The appliances should be selected before you work with a cabinet designer.)
  • Which walls are loadbearing and how will you support that load when you remove them?
  • What finishes do you want in your new spaces?
  • Do you need to design the space so that it supports aging in place?

Working with an experienced home renovations contractor helps you ensure all the details are considered so you get a home you love.

Challenges of a Total Home Renovation

When undertaking such a major home renovation, you need to be prepared for surprises. The big one is asbestos. Common places to discover asbestos are in drywall joint compound, some types of plaster (specifically old “popcorn” ceilings), old floor and ceiling tiles, insulation, roof shingles, and siding. If your home was built before or around the 1980s, there a good chance you may have asbestos.

Prior to providing you with a detailed scope estimate, your contractor should test for asbestos. If the test is positive, you’ll know you have to add the cost of professional remediation to your budget or adjust your renovation to accommodate the cost. If you think there is a chance that there plaster behind the drywall of your home, let your contractor know.

Depending on the age of your home, there could be other surprises that result in unexpected costs, such as replacing damaged or unsafe wiring or plumbing. An experienced contractor should be able to tell you what you might expect to find and what fixing the problem will entail in terms of budget and scheduling.
