What You Need to Know For Your Rochester Home Remodel

March 14th, 2022

If you have remodeling plans for your Rochester home, you’ll need to plan. Your home is one of the best things to invest in. You add value to your property, and, of course, you can improve your lifestyle with a few remodeling projects around the house. However, there are some things you need to know about home remodeling in Rochester before you get started.

Safety Should Always Be a High Priority

There are thousands of construction accidents every year, many of which occur in residential properties. If an employee of a construction company is injured on your Rochester property because of neglect of your property, you could be held liable. You must choose a construction company that is fully licensed and insured, and that you do your part to ensure there is nothing in the way of the project.

If an employee of the construction company is injured on your property and the company is fully licensed and insured, that employee has 20 days to report the injury to the construction company, but more importantly, the matter is dealt with by the construction company. Make sure you do your part by keeping a clear path to the project and removing any personal property that can cause an injury.

You also want to ensure pets and children are kept out of the way. Keeping everyone safe is essential to a successful project.

Pick Your Projects With Care

The right home remodeling projects in Rochester can help to add value to your home, your lifestyle, and can even help you save money. Planning your projects carefully and with an eye on ways to reduce costs will help the projects to pay for themselves. For example, replacing your old outdated HVAC system as part of your home remodel can help to reduce energy costs for cooling by 20%-50%.

In other words, when you are remodeling your Rochester home think about function, savings, and aesthetics. Many homeowners make the mistake of focusing only on aesthetics. Get more bang out of your buck by taking a look at the bigger picture. Consider making changes to your home that will improve energy efficiency and overall efficiency.

Make Sure Your Permits Are In Order

Your construction contractor in most cases will handle getting your permits for the project, but you should still check to ensure everything is in order. Ultimately, the responsibility for having the right permits falls on the homeowner in Rochester. Most larger construction firms (about 43%) spend between 1%-2% of their earnings on software to ensure they can simplify the permit process, according to Softwareconnect.com. Ask to see the permits.

Moving forward with a home remodel in Rochester without the proper permits can be costly. It is not unheard of in Rochester and other areas for a building inspector to require the homeowner to remove the upgrades to their home when those upgrades are done without the proper permit. Make sure you follow through with both the construction company and the county building inspector’s office to ensure proper permits are in place.

Rome Was Not Built In a Day

It can be tempting to get all the remodeling done that you want at once. It may seem like doing it all at once is the best option. However, it can quickly become overwhelming to have too many projects going at once. A better approach is to make a list and take a slow and steady approach.

Completing one remodel at a time will allow you to live with the results for a little while and see if you even want to make additional changes. You never know. You may decide that the new kitchen is enough for a while. A slow and steady pace typically results in better craftsmanship and less stress.

Remodeling your home in Rochester is a great way to give your home a refresh. It can also be a great way to save money if you play your cards right. Following the tips you find here will ensure that your project is a success.
