May 19, 2022 | Blog, Home Remodeling

Home renovations are often an exciting yet daunting task. The idea of transforming your house into the home you’ve always wanted is something many dream of.

Because home renovations and remodeling are such enormous projects, homeowners tend to make several mistakes or are uninformed about the magnitude and importance of the project.

Create A Plan Of Action

Together with your roofing team, create a plan of action that details how and when you’re going to tackle your home renovation project. Having a schedule helps you narrow down all the little details you have to tend to and enables you to get through everything efficiently. “Make sure that every project detail is carefully outlined within your build contract in order to protect yourself from any issues on the back end,” says Lumen Construction Co-Owner, Michael Morganti in the Redfin Blog.

Expecting Everything To Go According To Plan

When completing a home renovation, there are many moving parts, several factors to consider, and things to plan for. Things like insurance claims, contractors, labor issues, sourcing materials, accidents, injuries, and breakages all increase your project’s budget and prolong its deadline.

Setting A Budget

Setting a budget for your home renovation is extremely important. You need to know how much money you’re working with to make the best decisions on which materials and installations you can afford. You can’t enjoy your newly renovated home when dealing with significant debt. A properly planned budget includes a little extra money for anything going wrong or any unforeseen issues.

Finding A Reliable Contractor

Finding a reliable contractor will make renovating your home ten times easier. “When selecting a roofing contractor, be sure to do your due diligence to verify their trade license (requirements vary by state) and the company’s online reputation (social media/google reviews, BBB complaints, etc.),” says Morganti. With Lumen Construction, you can rest assured that our expert team of builders and home renovators will turn your house into your dream home.

Secure All Your Permits

Make sure that you secure all the necessary permits that you would need to complete your home’s renovation. The last thing you want is for officials to halt the project or perhaps even fine you for building without a permit.

Skimping On Quality

“Avoid 3-tab shingles at all costs,” says Morganti. While you have to adhere to your budget, skimping on quality materials will cost you more in the long run. Sometimes it is better to buy something durable and slightly pricier than buying something cheap that won’t last very long.

Ask Questions

Ask lots of questions. According to Morganti, it’s best to ensure that your contractor is going to replace all step and headwall flashings as well as tear the roof all the way down to the bare deck to check for moisture damage before installation. Remember that your home, money, and time are at stake here, so it’s best to get it all out from the get-go.

    Ross and Philip provided exceptional service. We had been having roof leaks for more than 2-3 yrs in certain spots in the house.We had this inspected by multiple roofers and no one was able to figure out where the water was coming from … More in the house as there were no obvious signs of roof damage. Ross and Philip were onsite multiple times and helped figure out the issue and fix it. They were always very professional, always came on time and above all figured out the problem.
    They definitely went above and beyond.
    Regarding the work, they went over all the steps in detail. The work was clean and neat. We will definitely call them for any roofing issues.
