Successful Remodeling Action Plan: Stress-Free Home Remodeling

Successful Remodeling Action Plan







Planning ahead and taking things step-by-step is the key to a successful stress-free home improvements and remodeling projects. If done according to design, renovation projects can be painless and enjoyable. Remodeling is a decision that requires patience and planning. NARI suggests the following 10 Step Program When Remodeling:

First Step:
Make sure you have the financial resources, time, and patience it takes for a successful remodeling project before you start.

Next Step:
How long do you intend to live in your present home? If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, check with or hire a professional appraiser to see how much you can invest in remodeling and still recoup those costs when you sell the home. If you are planning on selling your home we suggest you should work an interior designer to develop your plans and budget. Once you have your permit ready designs you could immediately list the property as a For-Sale-By-Owner. We recommend these DIY & Done For Your marketing services.

Step Three:
Make a list of the ideas of what you want the remodeling project to include and what rooms you would like to change before calling a contractor. Make a list of the rooms you would like to remodel as well as the reasons for the changes. Go to Houzz.com and create an ideabooks, starting pinning on Printerest or post on Instragram.  Now you are ready to start by talking with a Design/Build firm, an Architect or a General Contractor.

  • The Design/Build Contractor— Renowned Renovation is a Design/Build Home Services company which means we provide both quality design and construction services within the same company. which benefits homeowners. As a design/build contractor will be able to see your project through from start to finish, keeping design, engineering and budget in mind.
  • An Architect—Major remodeling projects require construction drawings for the purposes of defining a contract and procurement of permits. In cases where your professional remodeler does not provide design services, you may wish to seek the assistance of a professionally trained architect. It is best to work with an architect experienced in remodeling–he or she will be more sensitive to the special challenges that remodeling represents.
  • The General Contractor—Many home improvement projects may not require professional design services and can best be handled by the experienced contractor whose knowledge of materials and methods has been gained by years on the job. Even small jobs need careful planning and attention to details.

Step Four:
Allow time for the remodel. Possible delays may and do occur during the project due to materials shortages, weather and unforeseen problems. Delays are common for special orders like replacement windows and kitchen cabinets. Take these into account when creating a time with your contractor. Unrealistic time frames will add to the difficulty and stress.

Step Five:
Hire a professional contractor. The best way to protect yourself is to hire a professional. Horror stories abound from homeowners who have hired disreputable contractors. Choose a contractor who is insured, meets any state licensing requirements, and is a member of a professional trade association such as NARI.

Most cities, towns and counties have established building codes. They vary from one jurisdiction to the next. A building permit generally is required whenever structural work is involved or when the basic living area of a home is to be changed. If you have a home with an unfinished basement and would like to finish off a portion of it for a family room, you would need a building permit because you have changed storage space to livable space.

Do not obtain your own building permit. In most jurisdictions, the person obtaining the permit is considered to be the contractor and is, therefore, liable if the work does not comply with local building codes. The complex elements of local building codes and permits are familiar details to a professional remodeling contractor.

Step Six:
Create a realistic budget. Decide how much money you can spend on home improvements before undertaking the project.

Step Seven:
Get a comprehensive proposal from your contractor. This allows you to know upfront how much money the project will cost. The proposal should also include the types of products that will be used.

Step Eight:
Get a signed contract before any work begins. The contract should detail the scope of the project, start and approximate completion dates, a payment schedule, product types, and responsibilities of the contractor and any subcontractors. The contract should also include provisions for change order procedures, warranties, and alternative dispute resolution clauses.

  • Specify all materials. Your contractor should detail a list of all materials for the project in your contract. This includes size, color, model, brand name and product.
  • Study all required plans carefully. Insist that you approve them and that they are identified in your written contract before work begins.
  • Federal law requires a contractor to give you written notice of your right to, without penalty, cancel a contract within three business days of signing it, provided it was solicited at some place other than the contractor’s place of business or appropriate premises–your home, for instance.
  • Understand the financial terms. Make sure that the terms are spelled out in the contract. The total price, payment schedule and cancellation penalty should be clear.
  • A warranty covering materials and workmanship for a minimum of one year should be written into the contract. The warranty must be identified as either “full” or limited.” If it is a “full warranty,” all faulty products must be repaired or replaced, or your money returned. A “limited warranty” indicates all replacements and refunds of damaged products are limited in some regard. The name and address of the party who will honor the warranty (contractor, distributor, or manufacturer) must be identified. Make sure the time period for which the warranty is offered is clearly specified.
  • A binding arbitration clause is also a good inclusion in the event a disagreement occurs. Arbitration can enable you to resolve disputes more quickly and effectively without costly litigation.
  • Thoroughly review the entire contract and be certain you fully understand it before signing it. Consider the scope of the project and make sure all items you’ve requested are included. Never sign an incomplete contract and always be sure to keep a copy of the final document for your records.
  • Be sure to put all changes in writing if the scope or complexity of your remodeling project is modified while work is being done. The amendment should be agreed upon and signed by both parties.
  • Keep a job file including the contract, plans, specifications, invoices, change orders and all correspondence with the contractor.
  • Request a contractor’s Affidavit of Final Release be provided you at the time you make final payment. This is your assurance that you will not be liable for any third-party claims for nonpayment of materials or subcontractors.

Step Nine:
Tie payments to work stages. Avoid contractors who ask for the total cost or a large sum of money up front. Contractors will usually split payments into percentages of the total cost of the project. These payments are typically tied to significant stages of the project, and payments are rendered as parts of the job are completed. Kitchen remodels, however, often require a large amount of money at the beginning to cover the costs of ordering cabinets and appliances.

Step Ten:
Keep your perspective. Remodeling is disruptive to your normal household environment. It is important to take a deep breath, keep your focus, and work toward the end result. If problems occur, talk to your contractor about your concerns. Remember, remodeling is fun and before you know it, you’ll have the dream home you’ve always wanted.

Our team installed a new shower/spa system with frameless floor-to-ceiling shower glass walls, steam accessories, new floating vanity, wall hung commode and tile. With limited space in the shower area, we got creative & built a platform above the shower to encapsulate the steam generator and thermostatic shower valve, allowing the homeowner to get the maximum storage space in the bathroom. The custom curved shower bench was created with cinder blocks & mortar and tiled with glass mosaic allowing the foot of the shower-bench to transition seamlessly into the hexagon shower floor tile.

By pairing the dark matte tile for the shower walls, the homeowners are now able to enjoy an authentic spa experience in the comfort of their own home. The tile choices are amazing and unique. We loved the Arabascato marble tile selected for the bathroom floor and closet and the 4x12 subway tile allowing it all to flow together in perfect harmony!
