A home addition can be the perfect way for you to customize a home so it better fits the changing needs of your family. There are many different home additions, and they will all have their own special caveats when it comes to building them. However, as with any major construction, there is the potential for delays. If you want your new home addition to keep on a specific schedule, here is how you avoid delays.
Keeping Home Addition Delays to a Minimum
Obviously, keeping home addition and any home remodeling delays to a minimum is all about picking the right contractor for the job first and foremost, but here are some other tips to keep in mind.
Be Timely When Making Decisions
Be it in the design phase or picking the materials to finish the interior, you will want to be timely when making a decision. Certainly, you want the finished product to meet your vision, but delaying your selection has a cascading effect. For example, the contractor can’t install the appropriate electrical wiring until you pick what, where, and how many lights will be in the room. Furthermore, there is a chance that waiting too long will lead to your choice being put on back order as well.
No contractor wants to be rude and ask you to go away in your own home. However, you paid them to do a job, and they intend to do it well. It will go faster if you take a step back and let them work. Checking in every now and then is great, and your contractor should give you regular updates, but in the end, you just need to sit back and wait for an amazing addition to be finished.
Make the Scope and Timeline Concrete
The number one cause of delays when it comes to home additions is that the scope of the addition changes. If new projects get added on to the existing scope, it will obviously take longer. Even if you do change the scope, you will also want to make sure you and the contractor adjust the timeline as well. Clarity and communication go a long way to prevent delays.
