How to Minimize Change Orders in Your Remodeling Project



An unexpected change order can arise due to certain circumstances that need to be addressed before the renovation process gets underway. This often comes as a surprise, so they’re not included even if the kitchen quote has been finalized. If your project gets too many change orders, your overall budget becomes affected. Here are some tips to avoid change orders.

Be More Involved in the Remodeling Process

One of the best ways to minimize change orders in your project is to be more active and involved throughout the remodeling process. You might not be certain of some materials and design elements until you see them but when you work closely with your contractor during the initial design stages, you’re already planning out and selecting what you want for your kitchen or bathroom remodel. This also allows the contractor to understand your needs and preferences more clearly and create a layout that will meet your specifications.

Hire a Trusted Professional

There are some contractors that will take advantage of change orders to make more money. During the bidding stage, dishonest contractors may conceal some of the faults they find in the remodeling design just to submit a more competitive bid. They’ll instead deal with the fault through a change order, which isn’t efficient for your remodel. Make sure to do your research and find a professional who’s also honest with their bathroom and kitchen estimates!
