After living in your home for a while Mike Green Jersey , you may begin noticing things are falling apart from age or overuse. Instead of replacing one item at a time, you may decide to get your home renovated.

Before you dive into your renovation project, there are a few things you need to consider. Are you a resident of Nassau County, Suffolk County Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey , Sayville, Massapequa or Northport? Or, do you live in an incorporated village such as Rockville Centre? There are certain laws, rules and procedures that determine if Tomas Tatar Jersey , when and how you should carry out any home renovations. Note that these rules may vary from town to town.

A quick bullet point overview of the process of taking your home renovation concept through completion of the project is as follows:

Develop a general scope of work
Get rough, “ballpark” pricing
Check on your financial ability to move forward
Develop architectural plans and clear concise job specifications
Get competitive bids using developed job specifications
Select a contractor and have a complete contract with equitable payment terms
Complete project with a contractors support and assistance
Below we will go into further detail regarding these points:

Develop a general scope of work

The first thing you should do is decide on what you want to be done in your home. It’s best that you write the details down. This will make it easier for you to communicate your vision to the home renovation contractor. Pictures always help convey your concept. There are websites like Pinterest or Houzz that have tons of pictures which you can download and share with your contractors, designers and architects.

Get rough, “ballpark” pricing

Try to schedule a meeting with a remodeling contractor or a general contractor at your home for a walkthrough and ballpark pricing. Be clear with the contractor that you would just like to speak in general terms regarding the overall pricing of the project elements and that you aren’t looking to delve to deeply into any details as of yet. The contractor will likely appreciate this approach as a lot of contractor’s waste time quoting jobs that never get built for one reason or another.

Check on your financial ability to move forward

This critical analysis should be done very early in your project so that not a lot of time and energy is wasted by yourself or the contractors and others pricing and estimating a project that you can’t afford to build or can’t get the financing for.

Develop architectural plans and clear concise job specifications

Do you need a full set of architectural drawings? A competent remodeling contractor should be able to assess your project and determine the need.

You can hire an architect or even a draftsman and get this done. You could also hire a design build general contractor who will develop the plans with you Riley Sheahan Jersey , often times this is a very intelligent way to accomplish developing a set of plans because the contractor can provide his input into the design and help steer the project in building more efficiently and cheaper. Slight changes in plans can create huge additional costs for an unknowing homeowner. A general contractor with decades of experience doing whole total home makeovers, dormers, extensions, additions Gustav Nyquist Jersey , kitchen renovations, bathroom remodeling can provide invaluable feedback during the designing process.

The architectural plans (if needed) are the starting point for a homeowner in moving toward establishing a clear, complete job spec for your project.

If there are no plans needed or even if there are plans needed, the next step is to diligently establish a written job spec for your project. Contractor who will bid your project may or may not provide you with a fully detailed written estimate. During the process of securing estimates from contractors it will be extremely difficult Justin Abdelkader Jersey , if not impossible to remember who said what, who priced what, etc. Do yourself a huge favor and start to write down the key aspects to your project.

Once you get through your initial interviews with the 2 or 3 contractors that are bidding the project and you collect all their great ideas and perspectives, you can then finalize a job spec and send the spec to all the bidders so that they call all prices the same work.

Get competitive bids using developed job specifications

Now you have a clear Frans Nielsen Jersey , thorough job spec that you developed which will help you get true “apples to apples” bids from the contractors. A savvy homeowner tells the contractor who are bidding the project that as a condition of the bidding process they want a fully detailed, written proposal that states all the particulars from the job spec as well as any additional specs and details needed to expand on the spec. These written proposals from the contractors can be cross compared for additional details with the hope of finalizing wording to be used in a final contract. This written job spec will help you do a number of things, a list of the benefits of establishing a written job spec is as follows:

See wording used in your final contract with the contractor you select
Eliminate gray areas of your project that could pop up during construction which will add on unsuspected costs….always a killer
Help set the tone with the contractor that you expect a detail oriented approach to doing work on your project.
Select a contractor and have a complete contract with equitable payment terms

It’s now happy time since you are through the process and getting very close to starting your project. You, like your contractor Henrik Zetterberg Jersey , feels that everything is going great.
