While the end result of a home remodeling project is definitely satisfying, the journey to get there can be stress-ridden, anxiety-inducing and just downright chaotic. There’s unlikely to be another time when your home will be filled by construction materials, with your home improvement contractor walking in and out of your door. Keeping the rest of your home separate and organized from the building frenzy can be a difficult task but it’s certainly not impossible.
Let our experienced construction experts at Empire State Builders & Contractors give you a few useful tips to keep your home neat and tidy despite all the construction activity.
What Your Contractor Will and Will Not Do
Good and reputable roofing and siding installation services will do their best to keep their work out of the rest of your home, however, some accidents are bound to happen. First, you want to check references and the Better Business Bureau to make sure that the company you have chosen is reliable and is not known to leave a mess behind. Then discuss with your contractor the areas where they will be working and what measures they’ll take to keep the place pristine and their construction contained.
Securing Your Home
While your contractor will keep their liabilities to a minimum, it’s still a good practice to take steps to secure your valuables while there are many people walking in and out of your home. Make sure that there’s always an adult present at all times during the project. Ask a friend, a neighbor, or a relative to house-sit while you’re not at home. Place all important documents and belongings in a safe place, as well.
Let the Family Know
Whatever the project is, from a simple residential window replacement to a full-on home addition, set a few rules for your family to keep them safe and out of the crew’s way. This is especially important if you have small children around.
