How Do I Prepare for a Home Remodeling Project?
For many people, a home remodeling project can be intimidating because of the many steps between concept and fruition. This is perhaps especially true in New York City, where renovating a townhouse, brownstone, or condo in a multifamily building imposes hurdles – such as securing city permits and building board approvals – that can be bewildering to the typical homeowner.
Since our company’s founding in 2005, we at Gaudioso Contracting have been helping New York City homeowners get the remodeling results they’ve been dreaming of without all the headaches they worry about. We’re happy to take care of the red tape associated with home remodeling projects in the city. And, as experts in building code requirements and common practices for water and electricity shutoffs, we can save you tons of valuable time that you might otherwise spend on research.
Having said that, though, we suggest that our customers spend some time thinking about and researching several factors before starting a home remodeling project. Here are two critical steps in the preparation process:
Determine Your Home Remodeling Goals
Why do you want to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, or other areas of your home? Are you strictly interested in updating the style? Or do you want to increase storage space and make room for larger appliances? Are you concerned about the return on investment you’ll receive if you sell your home?
Define the Scope of Your Project
Your answers to the questions listed above can help you decide how extensive your home renovations should be. For example, if you’re focused on simply replacing outdated cabinets and countertops, your remodeling project is likely to be less time-consuming than tearing out a wall to increase kitchen or bathroom space or provide a more open floor plan for your primary living areas. It’s also a good idea to have your ideal budget in mind before you schedule your first consultation with a home remodeling contractor.
Whether the home remodeling project you’ve been dreaming of is large or small, the experts at Gaudioso Contracting stand ready to help. Contact us today to learn more about our services. If you’re ready to get started, we’ll be happy to schedule a free consultation at your home in New York City.
