Anatomy of a Remodel – Build Phase

Management of your remodel kicks into high gear during the Build Phase, because at some point during this phase actual construction takes place.

Be prepared to spend up to 30 hours a week once construction begins managing your remodel.  Proper management is key.  Without it…you’re virtually guaranteed construction delays, cost overruns and sleepless nights.

Build Phase

After identifying 3 contractors that you would be interested in working with, request bids from each of them based on the same set of construction documents and confirm the build schedule for your remodel project.

Throughout construction maintain a punch list, a list of outstanding corrective work or work slated for completion after occupancy and give this list to the contractor for completion prior to final payment.

As you can see, there is more than meets the eye during the remodeling process.  Fortunately, there are construction managers available to help you successfully navigate the process.
