Kitchen remodels are a big undertaking. They also represent a significant investment in your space, and according to the experts, offer the biggest bank for your buck when it comes to return on investment. If you have a kitchen remodel in your future, here’s what you can expect to happen and when.
Finding a contractor for your kitchen remodel
You might think that all the subcontractors involved in a kitchen remodel are easy enough to handle on your own. If you’ve done this before, it very well may be. If you’re new to remodels, or big construction projects, it’s wise to consider bringing on a contractor to manage the project and address any problems that come up along the way. Finding a reputable contractor is the first step in a successful kitchen remodel.
Be sure to pull the permits
It’s very important to pull the necessary building and remodeling permits that are required by the town you live in. Having a reputable contractor on hand will help with this process since he or she will know exactly which permits you need. Don’t be tempted to save the money that the permit costs and work without one. That mistake could blow your project budget with fines.
It’s demo day
The first step when ushering in the new is getting rid of the old. A construction crew will come into the space on demo day and remove all the materials that you don’t intend to continue using. This is a loud and messy process, and it’s advisable to take small children and pets out of the home while it happens, at least until the dust settles.
Expect it to take longer than expected
Once the demo is done, you’ll have a fresh palette on which to paint your kitchen remodel Inglewood masterpiece. Your contractor will guide the subcontractors on installation of flooring, cabinets, countertops, lighting, and more. Initial estimates might have been surprising in the time frame expected. But you can pretty much guarantee that the project will take a little bit longer; almost all of them do. But good things come to those who wait patiently. Like brand new kitchens.
