A homeowner’s decision to live in the home during a remodel is an important one and one that is feasible, as long as all parties are in agreement. It requires a bit of planning to be successful and comfortable, by both the homeowner and the contractor. At DiStefano Brothers, our strong site management will allow you to remain in your home during your remodel with as little interruption as possible. Our team has put together some tips for a successful livable remodel:
Know the day to day schedule for Construction: The homeowners should know exactly when workers will be coming and going during the work day. This will give the family some privacy and also the security of knowing that no one will be in the home unplanned. An open line of communication will help both parties stay in contact and up to date on any scheduling needs or changes.
Create Construction-Free Zones: No matter how hard you or your contractor tries, dust happens. However, there are ways to successfully minimize the dust including a HEPA Filter. These are systems that draw dusty air out of the house and return clean air to the space. Additionally, enclosing the job site with a protective “wall” (taped or zipped) will create a dust barrier between the construction zone and the living areas. One of the most important aspects is to protect the site of the job so be sure to discuss ways to contain dust to designated areas with in order to make your stay in the home during construction more enjoyable. Build Clean is our go-to product for the best dust management during the renovation process.
