Fix It Up – How to Successfully Navigate your Demolition Project…


Have realistic expectations.

Time-out! Before starting your project, set realistic goals for the amount of time, money, and energy that the project will take. “Right now, with high construction costs and longer lead times resulting from shortened production schedules, shipping delays or shutdowns, this may not be the best time for you,” said Christina Wiersgalla of Wiersgalla sanitary, heating and air conditioning. “Lead times are currently longer and often misleading.”


Set a budget and stick to it.

We know, nobody likes numbers, but when it comes to a renovation project, be sure to plan a budget and stick to it. If something goes wrong, be aware of possible additional costs. Wiersgalla recommends paying attention to design and project management fees, fees for permits, demolition, disposal, resupply fees, and more.


Take measurements.

Measure the length of your space by width by height and stay within that space. Knowing your space limitations can help you make important decisions about fixtures, floors and more. Each luminaire requires a minimum of free space. Do not buy fixtures until you know the size of your room and what restrictions there may be.


Make a plan.

Plan what your renovated space will look like when completed. Make sure to plan in advance how much of this project you want to do yourself. Don’t try to plan remodeling around the holidays, right before big family events, or when family members are visiting.


Asking questions.

No question is a silly question in the remodeling industry. Ask if you are unsure about anything. Be proactive in action.
