“Clint’s team went above and beyond with our project and we were extremely satisfied.” – Satisfied customer
Step 1: Design and initial planning
You want to map our your plans for you reno project. Several important factors are choosing to use professionals such as architects, designers, builders and other professionals to help with your entire plan. Spend time on your design, you want to love it, but keep within your budget. Once you have your design, make sure that you find a contractor that you can trust and has lots of references. Once you have decided on a budget, make sure you stick to it so that you are completely satisfied with your project.
Step 2: Implementing the plan
You will want to meet with your contractor to finalize the design and make sure everything is with budget (both money and time). Your contractor can draw on their experience to offer ideas and suggest changes that might improve the project overall. Go over product and material selection so that you can ensure all of the pieces you and your contractor need will be there on time. Remember, it takes a lot longer to get cabinets ready than a pallet of 2x4s. At the end of this planning you should have a detailed construction schedule that everyone involved has a copy of and has agreed to adhere to.
Step 3: Pre-Construction Conference
Get everyone invovled to meet all together at least once. Meeting at your home is a good idea to create a relaxing environment and you will have all of your paperwork, drawings and other plans nearby. Being in your house also allows you to tour around with the group to help everyone visualize what is going to happen. Make sure everyone that needs to be in the loop is there. It is also the perfect time to setup all the ground rules for the project. It is a good idea to itemize your rules for scheduling, communication and change notification. Make sure that everyone involved agrees to the rules. You might even want to print off a copy for everyone and get signatures. It is a good idea to have a central binder that has everyone’s contact information, key checklists and a register so that everyone involved can sign in/out when they are onsite performing work. You will want to setup regular meeting times with all of the key people involved with your project.
Step 4: Setting up your Project for Efficiency
It might seem excessive, but it is a good idea to remove all personal items or valuables from the construction area. You do not want these things to get dusty or covered with paint, and there is no point in leaving tempting items for the various people who will be coming through. You might even want to go as far as setting up an area with a fridge, microwave, some chairs and a table. Everyone can use this area for lunch, resting, working on computers, taking calls etc. You will want to setup a common area for trash and debris, renting a large disposal bin is a great idea and will make cleanup a lot easier. It is not always possible to allocate space for larger materials that will be dropped off, but do your best. If you can, setup large areas where supplies like drywall sheets, plywood, lumber, insulation and other large materials can be stored and easily accessed by the crew. It is a good idea to setup a highly visible sign for delivery vehicles if you know that you might not be around during the time of delivery.
Step 5: Demolish
Spending extra time on planning for the demolition phase will save you a ton of headache and work in the end. Demolition can create a lot of fine dust and debris. Take time to make sure that you or your team setup poly sheets sealed with tape to isolate areas of demolition from areas of your home that are still being used for living. If possible block off cold air returns and duct work. It might be necessary to setup dust removal machines to keep the air clean enough and help prevent excessive deposits of dust.
Step 6: Rebuilding and creating
Your team will prepare crucial elements like the foundation, framing of the walls, flooring systems, roofing construction and proper installation of windows. Next the plumbing is roughed in along with other critical elements like electrical, communication lines (phone and cable) and the duct work is installed for the planned hvac systems. The insulating between studs and rafters is installed followed by drywall on the ceilings and walls. Once drywalled, it is time to tape, mud, sand and prime to get ready for painting. It may also be necessary to install underlay for flooring depending on what type of flooring is chosen. Your house will be roofed (if part of the plan) and then sided. We now get into the finer touches like finishing walls and ceilings, applying window trims, installation of countertops and cabinets. Flooring can now be installed and the electrical and plumbing installations can be finalized.
Step 7: The Final Walk Through and Touch Ups
Once all of the team has reported that the work is done, you will want to tour the project with your contractor and bring your checklists. Make sure to take detailed notes of what is done, what is not done and what needs to be completed. You will be thankful for those detailed checklists you prepared ahead of time during this walk through. Once all of the defects are completed, you will want to review all new equipment, systems and get some instruction on how to operate and maintain everything. Many elements of the project will have warrantees, make sure you are familiar with these.
