Remodelling your home is not something you do every other day. So when you do feel the need, its best to first step back and analyse the situation. Sit down and discuss in detail with your household the layout of each room. Estimate the level of work required to give your house a fresh look. If you feel like the job is too big to do on your own, our expert team of contractors are here to help make the job simple, efficient and, most importantly, effortless. To make the process smoother for you, we have explained in detail 5 key steps of what to do when it finally comes time to bring in some help for the job.

1. Deciding on Which Rooms to Remodel

The first thing to think of before starting any remodelling project is to consider your lifestyle. Remodelling an entire house can take months. Think of how long you want the house to retain its new look. 10 years, 25 years or even keeping the house in the family can change the way a remodel is done.

Our experienced renovating contractors would recommend remodelling the kitchen, bathrooms and living room first as they are the busiest. If you can afford to do more than just these rooms, ensure to get as many done as possible to avoid having to start another remodelling project sooner rather than later.

2. Estimating the Amount of Work

Jot down everything you can think of that needs to be done as a part of the home remodel. Remember that it is not always possible to redo the entire electrical wiring, plumbing and wall removals. Make a note of what is necessary and what can be withheld, set priorities to ensure the important rooms get done first.

This is where a contractor steps into play. Once you explain your ideas and visions of your remodel, they will be able to answer any question you may have involving what is possible and what is improbable. While any renovation can be done with the right materials, sometimes you are better off with sticking to your contractor’s expert ideas.

3. Creating a Budget

Now that you have a rough estimate of the work needed done, a budget must be created. After checking out a few different prices, it is common to become tempted to do the work on your own. However, hiring a renovation contractor lowers your chances of going over your budget than if you had decided to do everything yourself.

Looking at the larger picture, you can save more money and hassle by hiring a contractor. If you find yourself edging towards your budget cap, don’t hesitate to ask us how you can start saving on money to avoid and holes in your pockets. With our dedicated experience, we can lead you onto the right path to where money can be saved and where it should be invested.

4. Creating a Schedule

Whether you decide to remodel your home on your own or hire professional contractors like Dilamco, it is absolutely necessary to create a schedule on when different aspects of the project should be completed.

Our team can guide you through planning out a schedule that fits both your needs and your budget’s. This will help you create a better budget plan and to know when new items need to be bought.

5. Deciding Who to Hire

Depending on the tasks that need done, you may need help from various fields of construction. This would generally include carpenters, electricians, decorators, plumbers and so on.
