How the DreamMaker Process Minimizes Project Delays

You can never rule out the risk of delays during a remodeling project. However, with careful planning, you can minimize it. To further minimize the risk of disruptions, the interior remodeling contractors at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown follow a proven process that can help prevent some of the most common causes of delays during home renovations. 

Change Orders

Change orders are modifications made to the original scope of the project after construction has already started. While change orders are necessary in certain situations, it’s best to avoid them. How can change orders be avoided? Without a vision or goals for your remodeling project, the end result might end up being quite different from what you had in mind. Visualize your dream remodel and set specific goals for your renovation. 

Visualizing your dream remodel takes a bit of time and research. During your initial consultation, a DreamMaker designer will listen carefully to your vision and goals so we can incorporate your ideas into your new space. And to help you visualize your newly remodeled home, our remodeling contractor can share pictures of newly renovated spaces. 

Here’s a planning tip: bring sketches of your dream remodel to your first consultation. 

Pre-Existing Conditions

Pre-existing conditions such as issues with plumbing or moisture damage can cause significant delays. Your remodeler will need to fix these issues before construction can start. To identify these issues and factor in the time needed for repairs into the project timeline, DreamMaker remodelers will conduct a comprehensive survey after the initial consultation. After finishing the survey, our remodelers will set the next meeting, when they’ll discuss the proposed designs. 


Home renovations are essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor. That’s why constant communication is key to your remodeling project’s success. Throughout the remodeling process, your project manager will be your dedicated point of contact. Should you have any concerns about the progress of your project, don’t hesitate to contact them.
