Avoiding a Failed Home Remodeling Project



How carefully and thoroughly you’ve planned a home remodeling project ultimately determines the results at the end. But the fact is that home remodeling can be unpredictable. A premier kitchen and bathroom remodeler, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville, explains what can cause a remodeling project to fail and how to avoid it. 

  • Underestimating the project. While there’s a ballpark figure for the average remodel, you shouldn’t assume that yours will be close to it. There are plenty of bases to cover, and some of them can significantly add to your overall project costs. Underestimating the project can lead to sticker shock. Fortunately, you can consult a reliable home remodeler like DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville. We’ll be happy to provide you with a detailed and accurate estimate that covers every aspect of your project. You’ll see exactly what goes into the total project cost, which in turn will allow you to plan accordingly. 
  • Being unprepared for surprises. Unwelcome surprises pop up now and then in a remodel. Perhaps your contractor has uncovered mold damage or structural issues. These will need to be addressed before the actual remodeling work can begin — which means you’ll have to increase your budget or halt work. This situation can be mitigated by setting aside a contingency fund. Having updated homeowner’s insurance in place can also help cover additional repairs. 
  • Living on-site during the remodel. Home remodels are loud and messy. Unless absolutely necessary, you’ll want to stay somewhere else temporarily until the project is finished. For starters, this eliminates the need for extra cleanup at day’s end. This also helps avoid any safety issues — you don’t want the kiddos or a curious pet wandering onto the worksite. Lastly, it makes the remodeling experience less stressful.
