After weeks or months of hard effort and stress, now you have a completed home renovation. It’s not over yet, though. You’ll probably have to deal with the following issues following your house renovation.
Take a Final Tour of the Property
Have one more tour with your builder or contractor before you pay the final bill. The best way to find out if you’re happy with the work done in a room is to go through it. A good contractor will also look for flaws and fix them if necessary.
Preparation is Key to Successful Cleaning
Completed home renovation is a mess. In addition to leaving behind a small amount of trash like a strewn paintbrush or a box of nails, your home will need a comprehensive cleaning after the renovation. Post-construction cleanup services are available to alleviate some of the burdens on you.
The paintbrush is at the ready. The walls or trim may get scratched during a remodeling project, and it may not be included in the scope of work. If your ceilings have been dinged up, here’s how to fix it.
Fill out any warranty cards that come with new products or appliances and mail them or enter them online, if that’s an option. You will save yourself a great number of headaches if your new dishwasher fails and floods your kitchen if you take the time to finish this step.
New Furniture Purchases
You’ll probably have to acquire some new furniture if your home remodeling project involves an expansion or a total redesign of the area. Before you start shopping, make sure you measure your new space to ensure that the goods you buy will fit. If you can afford it, buy high-quality furniture after a Completed home renovation.
There is dust everywhere after a house is remodeled, even in places that didn’t see any activity, such as kitchen drawers and cupboards. However, you may still have to perform some dusting even if you hire a cleaning service to come in once construction is over.
Filters should be checked or replaced if necessary
Your furnace filters should be changed after a home makeover, depending on the length of the project and the type of work.
Ensure that your insurance policy is updated
You should contact your homeowner’s insurance provider after a Completed home renovation, as you may need to change the policy’s limitations. In some cases, a city assessor may be called in to evaluate the value of your home’s renovation.
A Maintenance Checklist should be created
Natural stone tile or hardwood flooring may not be known to you, yet they may have been used in your house renovation. Prepare a maintenance checklist and start learning how to care for these items properly. By doing this, you’ll be able to keep your house in good shape for many years to come.
How long does a completed home renovation take?
No one-size-fits-all answer exists to this topic, just as there isn’t for a brand-new custom home. But it’s fine. There are no two custom home renovations the same. A separate schedule is for it to be a distinct entity. A professional builder can look at your house and your desired project scope and provide you with a solid estimate of how long your planned renovation should last. As a result, they will better understand what to look for and how much room for error to build into the project’s schedule. Let’s take a look at some completed home renovation timeline examples.
- 1 to 3 Months for the architectural design phase
- 2 – 3 weeks for the bidding process
- 1 Month for the Approvals and City Permitting
- 3 to 9 months for construction
