Many people like the idea of remodeling their home to make it more efficient and beautiful. They also like the idea of saving some money by doing the work themselves. However, without a remodeling contractor, you can find yourself buried in a half-done projects. You also might not have a clear plan or a clear idea of how much things will cost. Here are some good reasons to turn your renovation over to a custom home builder.
1. Sourcing materials
You might think of getting most of your home materials from a local home supply store. However, a custom builder will have sources for different finishes not available from the usual supply stores. You might get better pricing on better materials when you get them through a contractor.
2. A shorter timeline
Doing work yourself takes longer. You can experience more setbacks, especially when you uncover things like mold, structural issues, or electrical problems. These issues are run-of-the-mill for a contractor, and they can be worked into the timeline more easily.
3. Custom finishes that are tricky to DIY
Your vision for your home might not match up with your ability to make it happen. A custom builder can complete the more tricky work that you need to make your home unique. Tasks that require great skill such as laying tile, putting in large windows or custom doors, or hanging drywall go much faster through the builder and the contractors they hire to get the work done.
4. Bringing your dream into reality
You might have a plan for your house, but you might not be sure how to make it happen. If you bring your plans to a custom builder, they can take your wishlist and show you how it can be done, including the order of operations for the most cost-effective approach to the renovation.
5. Clean up
Cleaning up the worksite is an important but overlooked part of renovating. Your contractor will take care of hauling off old carpet, cabinets, and fixtures. Without their help, you need to find a way to haul it yourself with a construction dumpster, trailer, or truck. The dumping fees can be higher for non-contractors because professionals might have a contract with a debris collection company for a fixed rate.
