The 4 Biggest Problems to Avoid In Your Remodeling Project

Don’t make these big remodeling mistakes!

Creative Spaces Remodeling was created to remove the stresses, pains, and headaches that typically accompany a home remodeling project. Throughout the entire process, our designers and construction professionals are engaged with the homeowners to ensure that any surprises or mistakes are avoided.  We understand that the process has been dreadful for some, so we strive to offer a positive experience to every single client. 

Poor Contracting

The biggest mistake any homeowner can make is to put his or her trust into a contracting team that isn’t fit for the job. We hear many stories about homeowners who felt that their first contractor didn’t understand their vision, and didn’t take the time to try. When planning a remodeling job, the first thing to do is to find a contracting company that you can trust.

Lack of Communication

A lack of open communication between the homeowners and the contracting team will definitely lead to problems. A remodeling project starts with a general idea, but as it continues, it becomes something specific and unique to the homeowner.  Any minor changes or decisions need to be discussed between the homeowner and the contractor in order for the project to run smoothly.

Living At the Scene

Choosing to live at home while the remodeling project is taking place is only a good idea if a minor part of your home is being renovated. For larger or full home renovations, it’s best to arrange for temporary stay elsewhere. Homeowners become discouraged by the loud noises and workers constantly filling the space, and the entire experience may not be enjoyable.

Becoming Overwhelmed

Change is good, but can sometimes be difficult. That’s why we call ourselves “remodeling therapists”. Your remodeling project takes time, and if you haven’t set realistic expectations for it then you can easily become overwhelmed. Many contractors don’t understand how much this project may mean to the homeowner, and won’t take many of the emotional aspects into consideration.
