“People don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan.” Although this is a phrase normally used in conjunction with people not having the foresight to plan for their financial future, it can easily apply to several walks of life. For example, many people don’t realize how long a renovation can take. So, if you’re thinking about doing so in the near future, planning can make all the difference in the world. Therefore, we’ve listed some of the things you’ll want to consider:
Some remodeling jobs are more complex than others. While some are easy DIY projects, some may require permits from your town or city. Since each location is different, you’ll want to consult with someone who’s familiar with zoning permits. In some cases, it can take anywhere from 2-4 months to get approval, so plan accordingly so it doesn’t delay your projected start time.
Go In With An (Initial) Plan
When it comes to the holiday season, you know it’s better to get your shopping done early so you can avoid the last-minute rush or a Black Friday fiasco. Renovating your home is no different. Before even meeting with contractors, you’ll want to have an idea of which designs, colors, and materials you like that way you have an initial vision of what you want your home to look like. This will also help you potentially order your materials early and avoid the possibility of them being out of stock which will therefore delay your project.
It’s That Time of the Season
Depending upon your geographic location, weather can be a major factor in your plans. If your project includes exterior work, then the last thing you want to do is get stuck with the elements hindering your efforts. Keep in mind you’ll want to reach out a couple of months in advance of your preferred start time because with demand as high as it is many companies might be booked weeks or even months in advance.
Overall, from start to finish the average home renovation can take anywhere between 6-12 months to complete. So, if you want your newly renovated home to be the talk of the town in 2022 then the time to act is NOW. As Long Island’s #1 Home Renovator, we’ll help you make your dream home a reality.
