Remaining Comfortable During Remodeling

Home Remodeling can be very stressful project to many, and the owners and contractors at T&K Contractors in NJ aim to provide the most comfortable home remodeling experience for homeowners in New Jersey. It is very important to remember that during a home remodel, your home will need to be opened to various workers every day and your normal daily routine may change slightly.

No matter what part of your house you’ve decided to remodel, we recommend that you discuss how your life will be altered for the short term with your NJ home remodeling contractor. Your contractor will be able to lay out a schedule of potential moments in your home remodeling project that could temporarily displace your routine. While we at T&K Contractors in NJ do our best to complete your home remodel as quickly as possible.

If you are doing an entire home remodel, you may want to secure another place to live for the length of your remodeling project. This way, you can carry on with your daily life without the distraction of having to move around your life constantly as well as giving your contractors an environment where they are able to work from one room to the next more quickly. It is possible, that with a whole home remodel, contractors could be working on your kitchen, bathroom and living areas at the same time. It is important to remember that water and electricity could be turned off for a day or so in order to get pipes fitted and lights and appliances changed throughout your home.

During a bathroom remodeling project, you will want to make sure that you have access to another bathroom in your home. While a bathroom remodel can take just a few days, you will want to make sure you have the use of another bathroom with a shower or a bath to ensure. In many smaller homes, a remodeling your bathroom can put you out for the length of the remodel so if you only have one shower or tub in your home, you will want to discuss this with your contractor to ensure the quickest remodeling time or secure a place to stay (or just shower) in the meantime.

As with a bathroom remodel, a kitchen remodeling project can also displace your daily routine for a short period of time. Due to the replacement of appliances, change of sinks, painting, replacing the cabinets, etc, a kitchen remodel could potentially take weeks to complete. Therefore, you will want to discuss with your contractor how long you will not have access to the important things you come to rely on a daily basis such as your stove, sink, cabinets, etc. If you plan to stay in your home during the remodeling period, we recommend setting up a temporary kitchen in another room of your home. Move your refrigerator if necessary, relocate your microwave, and set up a hot plate (or take this time to enjoy food from the grill or trying that new local restaurant you’ve been dying to try). While this changes your routine slightly, we can ensure you that being prepared will make the transition much easier.
