Don’t delay! Start planning your home renovation

Having empty rooms in your home might make it feel like it’s not quite your own. Why not convert that kid’s room into a luxurious bathroom or a walk-in closet and reclaim your space? eieihome.com spoke to Paul Napolitano of Royal Home Improvements about what you need to know when you are doing a major home renovation.

Get started early

Start planning early; you want to make sure that you have all your plans and permits ready to go when you want to start your major renovation. “Try to find a contractor that can handle all the paperwork; including properly submitting drawings and obtaining all required building permits and variances,” says Paul. It is important to have all your plans and permits ready before you get started on a major renovation. If you don’t, you could have months of delays and a large hole in your bank account. “Working with a contractor that is full service, like Royal Home Improvements, and has everything from designers and architectural draftsmen to interior decorators and trades, can ensure that your home renovation goes as smoothly as possible.”

Certified Professionals

Anyone can say that they can create a luxurious bathroom; however this doesn’t mean they have the right qualifications to get it done right. “Having your contractor be a member of organizations and associations like RenoMark, BILD, NKBA and the BBB can help give you the confidence you need when choosing a contractor,” says Paul. It is also important that the contractor is insured, be sure to ask for proof of insurance.

Project Management

When doing a major renovation there is nothing worse than delays and failed communication between the different teams. Project Managers work tirelessly behind the scenes and on the job sites. They help the homeowner make product selections, coordinate delivery of product and materials as well as scheduling the necessary trades and suppliers to move your project forward. Project Managers deal with all the onsite decisions that need to be made. They are responsible for quality control, insuring your project maintains site cleanliness and that the site is safe and protected, after all, the site is your home. Project Managers coordinate all on site activities and always work with the homeowner’s best interest in mind. They are responsible for the timely delivery without sacrifice in quality and constantly communicating with the homeowner. They prevent the finger pointing and are there to solve any issue or service that might arise.
