So far this month, we have discussed how crucial planning is to your renovation’s success, the importance of hiring a RenoMark™ renovator and why having a written contract is an absolute necessity for every home renovation project.
The fourth step to your kitchen or bath renovation success involves keeping the channels of communication open throughout the renovation project to avoid any issues that may come up.
In “Read Before You Renovate,” Renomark notes that it’s not uncommon for a homeowner to request changes or ask for additional work. Because these new requests can affect the cost and time it takes to complete the project, they stress the importance of having a signed change order that details:
- the precise scope of work;
- the costs involved for the changes;
- an updated timetable for completing the renovation.
“Clarity and transparency are very important to us,” says Monarch designer Jackie Schagen. “If unexpected issues arise during the renovation process, we explain the options and their cost implications to our clients so they are able to make informed choices.”
