Whether you want to upgrade your bathroom to sell your home or for your quality of life, bathroom remodeling Houston is a big undertaking. At Hestia Construction & Design, we know every project is another wish list item checked off, but every remodel can also be a hassle. That is why we recommend tackling multiple remodeling projects at once. If you have various projects planned for your home, here are three reasons why you should consider getting them all done at once.
Go Through Less Hassle
There are multiple steps in any remodeling project. These start with demolition and include many of the following activities:
- Exposing existing plumbing and wires
- Rerouting plumbing and wires
- Replacing walls
- Installing fixtures
- Installing floors
- Clean up
When you remodel similar rooms together, such as your kitchen and bathroom, which both use plumbing, then you can combine tasks and improve efficiency. For example, rerouting plumbing means turning off your water for some time. If two rooms are being rerouted at once, you only turn your water off one time. However, when you split these projects, you could be turning your water off and on for a couple of weeks.
You must also consider the mess and disturbance that come along any remodel. If you live in your home during renovations, even our neatest crews will have some impact on your daily activities. For example, for electrical outlets, power tools require electricity, and you could find yourself moving and unplugging useful items in your home. Remodelers in Houston do their utmost to avoid causing inconvenience, but construction is a messy and invasive process.
Spend Less Time
Even the shortest remodeling projects take time, and when you plan projects sequentially, that time starts to add up. For every additional home remodeling Houston project you have, consider the amount of time it should take, add a few days for unexpected issues, then tally up the time. This could be a month or more of your life taken up by the noise and inconvenience of construction. When possible, timing these projects together means they can take less time in the long run.
Use Less Creative Energy
Even if you want our designers to make all the decisions about your remodeling project, you still need to approve various design elements and fixtures. Timing your bathroom remodeling Houston to coincide with other remodeling projects means you can choose elements that are already complementary and take less effort to pick. You can decide from the beginning that you want every room to have its theme with some continuous element through your whole house. For example, if you want a rustic feel in your home, you could have a ranch-style kitchen and a complementary farm-inspired bathroom. Certain items, such as fixtures and paint, can follow the same strategy for the other rooms.
Spend Less Money
Most contractors base their prices on a per-job basis, which means you take on that cost for each room you remodel when they’re done separately. There are also costs for the time it takes to do demolition and cleanup, so pair tasks that can be done at the same time when you remodel multiple rooms. Similar to bundling other services, contracting various projects at once can sometimes come with a discount.
In addition, you must also consider the time your contractor is available. Serving the Houston area means being open to over 800,000 households. When you make a contract, Hestia Construction & Design will be at your disposal throughout the entire process. Multiple contracts could mean waiting while other homeowners complete their projects.
Another overlooked aspect is where you will live during construction? If you have only one bathroom, you may need to relocate during parts of the remodel temporarily. If you have friends or family with some extra space, then this should not cost you very much. However, if you are staying in a nearby hotel, every additional day costs you more money. In this instance, saving time saves you money.
