Here in North Carolina, we enjoy some beautiful historical buildings. Unfortunately, sometimes these historical areas come with some terribly outdated interiors that go along with their history. If you’d like to improve your Hickory, NC home with an interior home renovation, there are a few things you can do that will make the process go much smoother, such as:
- Adjust your budget for contingency. Even the best of contractors cannot see through walls. You never know what you’ll encounter during an interior home renovation, especially in older homes. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to have a healthy contingency budget. This is an extra amount of money that is added onto your interior home renovation budget that will be used if (or when) you encounter something unexpected.
- Hire the right person. Interior home renovations, depending on how extensive they are, can last a long time. Make sure you are comfortable with and have extensively researched your contractor to ensure the smoothest experience during renovation. Getting multiple bids and asking around to trusted neighbors, friends, or family can help you narrow your search.
- Prepare to have schedule altered. Interior home renovations will require a lot of time on your part, even if you hire out the work. Often, you’ll need to be accessible whether by phone or email. Additionally, living in a construction zone can be difficult. Prepare your budget to spend more on ready-made foods if your kitchen is inaccessible, or if you choose to stay elsewhere, add those costs into your budget.
