As veteran providers of home renovations in the Perth area, we know it’s not a picnic for most people. Recently, we found a US piece on keeping calm during home renovations and we thought some highlights would be relevant. We are going to give you a bonus tip at the end.
The best way to communicate is to be nice. When tempers flare, time is wasted and often communication goes awry. Remember it doesn’t cost anything to be nice. Your builders will be a lot more receptive and responsive to whatever you have to say, too.
Get Everything in Writing
Don’t let anyone work on your house without having everything in writing. We mean everything. You need to know exactly what is going to be done, exactly what it is going to cost and exactly how long it is going to take.
Allow for More Time than the Estimate
Some builders always underestimate the time it is going to take. Sadly, there are enough of those kind of builders that this advice is often necessary. If you don’t know who you’re working with, don’t plan on the work being done on time.
Insist on Professional Behaviour
Insist that the crew cleans up after itself every day. Make sure they conduct themselves as professionals at all times. Remember that you are paying for the work that is being done.
