At Impact Home Solutions, we are the number one home remodeler in the area. We have renovated hundreds of bathrooms over the years, and we have learned a thing or two in that time. When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, there are a few things you need to keep in mind if you want to avoid any stressful surprises.
First and foremost, set a budget and make sure to include a little extra for those unforeseen costs that always seem to pop up. Secondly, take into consideration the fact that most bathroom remodels take longer than expected, so plan accordingly. Lastly, don’t forget to factor in the colder temperatures that come with winter.
Here are a few tips to help ensure your bathroom remodel goes as smoothly as possible this winter. When it comes to setting a budget for your bathroom remodel, be sure to factor in the cost of materials, labor, permits, and any other miscellaneous costs that may come up. A good rule of thumb is to budget an additional 10–15% for those unexpected costs. It’s also important to remember that most bathroom remodels take longer than expected, so plan accordingly. If you can’t live without a functioning bathroom for more than a few days, consider renting a portable toilet or staying with family or friends during the duration of the project.
When it comes to actually doing the work, there are a few things you need to keep in mind due to the colder temperatures that come with winter.
First, if you’re doing any work that involves water lines (like installing a new toilet or sink), be sure to insulate them properly to avoid any frozen pipes.
Secondly, be mindful of condensation when working with paint or other finishes as they can take longer to dry in the colder temperatures.
Lastly, make sure any heaters or other equipment you’re using are properly ventilated as they can produce harmful fumes.
By following these tips, you can help ensure your bathroom remodel goes as smoothly as possible this winter.
