What To Expect When You’re Remodeling
If you’ve never remodeled before, you may be feeling a little nervous about it all. You may be asking yourself, “how much will it cost” or “how long will it take?” Knowing what to expect may help alleviate any fears and prepare you for what’s to come.
- Dust. Even on the farthest corner of your home, away from all of the construction, you may find a fine layer of dust gathered. There are some ways to control the dust, such as a compression-fit temporary wall, air filtering systems, and blocking off returns in the construction area.
- Noise. Whining saws, thumping nail guns and scratching sanders will be an incessant noise you will hear continuously. Don’t expect to be taking a nap or working from home during construction hours.
- Multiple Sighs. It may be you just want your home back or you’re tired of answering so many questions and writing so many checks, but you are going to be sighing. Remodeling fatigue is short-lived and you’ll be back into your newly remodeled space soon enough, so hang in there.
