Top ten Considerations When Remodeling a house


1. Don’t try to knock it all out at once – During these tough financial times, more then ever it is important to take every task piece by piece. I know it is hard not to immediately jump in and remodel but you can save money and feel more accomplishment remodeling one room at a time. Work on the master bathroom first, and then move to the kitchen, then next to the guest bathroom. Give your self a 株式会社西川 家の傾き  couple months for each project, have fun, and feel the sense of accomplishment when each room is finished. By doing this you can tackle the whole house without tackling your pocket book and sanity.

2. Ask for help if you need it – Lets face it, we all aren’t the best at fixing things. Some of us have a natural knack for it, but I know there are days when the instruction manual looks like it was in a different language. These are the days when you need to ask for professional help. Call a plumber to fix that shower you have been trying to get to work; however, don’t be afraid to jump in with questions and comments regarding the work and placement as that is why you are paying them. Remember the internet can always be a valuable place to find Buying Guides, How to Guides, How to Videos, and general Learning Center content for installations and remodels.

3. Rough in Valves – So many people forget to think about the rough in valve (the piece that connects your trim to your plumbing) and purchase a beautiful new trim for their shower only to realize it will not fit the valve they have. If the valve doesn’t fit then you normally have to open the wall and cut the valve to solder a new one on. This is very time consuming and costly, so it is better to just select a trim that works with the valve you already have installed then spend 500 dollars to realize it will not work.

4. Efficiency is key to saving money – Within the last ten years the push to “go green” has been very popular in the united states, however many people don’t realize that going green has many other benefits such as saving lots of money in the long run, while also helping the environment.

5. Measurements – I don’t know how many times I have helped customers that need to returns items because they believed that a shower door that is 58 ½” will fit in a spot that is 57 1/2″ max. The same goes for faucet configurations. If the faucet holes are around 5″ on center then they will not condense to 4″ centers, you would need to consider a faucet that has an adjustable spread so you can make it fit whatever holes you currently have. When remodeling a home one of the most important things you can realize is that measurements need to be precise, this will save you a lot of headache, not to mention returns, and will help you make the most of your time.
