Miscommunication between client and remodeler can lead to critical mistakes in a remodeling project. In today’s blog, the bathroom remodeling contractors at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Schaumburg discuss how to keep everyone on the same page and get the best results from your remodeling project.
Smooth Out the Tension
The people involved in a remodeling project include homeowners or commercial clients, remodelers and perhaps a designer or architect. It’s important to establish the role of each person in order to avoid overstepping boundaries and stepping on each other’s toes.
In a typical home remodeling scenario that involves a couple, the two should be in agreement on who will be taking the lead. Two people with two different ideas about what the final result should look like is confusing. Given that a typical kitchen renovation project lasts up to eight weeks, this can result in delays in the project along with lengthy discussions on whose vision should be followed.
Get Everything In Writing
Always get everything in writing, particularly when making critical decisions; this is the reason why contracts exist. Mapping out tasks and responsibilities, such as identifying who the authorized signatory will be, can help eliminate instances of “I thought you were handling that.” Remodelers do our part by providing a detailed contract that includes a full breakdown of materials, their associated costs and who’s responsible for ordering them.
Maintain Consistent Communication
Thanks to modern communication technologies, maintaining communication today is much easier than what it was just 10 years ago. During most of our projects, we conduct weekly meetings to touch base with our client and answer any questions about how the project is proceeding. Today, one only needs to make a video call if they can’t be present physically. Consistent communication will help keep you up to date, avoiding surprises.
