How to prepare for your home remodel

Remodeling your home can be an exciting endeavor, but it also requires careful planning and preparation to ensure a smooth process and minimize disruptions to your daily life. At Wade Design and Construction, we understand the importance of thorough preparation, so we've put together this guide to help you get ready for your upcoming project.


1. Clear the Work Area and Protect Valuables

Before construction begins, it's essential to move any items out of the work area to prevent damage or obstruction. Valuables should be safely stored away from the renovation zone to avoid accidental damage. Our team will work diligently to keep your space tidy, but taking this precautionary step can provide added peace of mind.


2. Arrange for Pet Care

Pets can become stressed or curious during construction, so it's crucial to plan for their safety and comfort. Consider designating a specific area of your home where your pets can stay during the remodel, away from the construction zone. Alternatively, you can arrange for pet sitting or boarding to ensure they remain secure and happy throughout the process.

Additionally, feel free to communicate with our team members about any insights or quirks your pets may have, as their comfort and well-being are important to us— especially with the presence of unfamiliar faces in your home during the project.


3. Plan for Temporary Adjustments/Discomfort

Remodeling projects almost always entail inconvenience to your daily life, such as limited access to certain areas of your home. To mitigate disruptions, plan ahead by establishing different uses of the space and alternative walking paths through your home. Staying organized and clearing pathways  in your living space will help you navigate around the construction zone and maintain functionality in your daily routine.


4. Create Temporary Facilities

During a remodel, your regular kitchen or bathroom will likely be out of commission for a period of time. To minimize disruption to your daily routines, consider setting up temporary cooking and bathroom facilities in another area of your home. This could involve using a portable cooktop or setting up a makeshift kitchenette for kitchen remodels, and utilizing other bathrooms or powder rooms in your home—our team is happy to help coordinate the setup of temporary facilities! If your home has one bathroom, you may occasionally need to use alternative facilities, such as those at a gym, family member or neighbor’s home. Our team can also set up a portable toilet if necessary for the project.


5. Prepare for Noise

Construction can be noisy, and this noise may impact your daily activities, especially if you work from home or have young children. Make adjustments to your schedule or workspace to accommodate for the increased noise levels. If possible, designate a separate area away from the construction zone where you can work or relax without disturbance.


The team at Wade Design & Construction strives to make the remodeling process as smooth and stress-free as possible for our clients. By following these tips and working closely with our team, you can prepare effectively for your remodel and ensure a successful outcome.
