The Fundamental Pros & Cons of a Whole Home Remodel

One of the biggest questions homeowners debate during North Phoenix home remodeling is whether it is better to stay or to move out during the project. Typically, with certain projects such as North Phoenix kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling, there is no huge issue with the homeowner staying in the house since the projects are confined to a specific area. But the choice is entirely up to you. Here are some of the pros and cons that should be weighed when making your decision.

Remodeling is Intensive

Pro: During a renovation, the specific area being worked on is usually closed off with thick plastic and tape, to limit the spread of dust and toxins through your home. Contractors often use negative air pressure as well to keep contaminated air from leaving the construction zone and dispersing through your home.

Discussing the project and its projected schedule with your contractor, along with having a clear view of your household’s daily needs, will go a long way in helping you understand when and where you will have access to certain areas of your home.

Con: North Phoenix commercial and tenant remodeling can stir up old toxins, bring in new ones, and create infinite amounts of dust. It causes inconvenience, no matter how big or small the project, and can make areas of your home completely unusable for weeks at a time. The biggest question to ask is if your project is a total gut and remodel, or if it is simply contained to one side or room in the house.

It is also important to address the layout of your home. Is it a multi-level home to where remodeling could happen upstairs while you live downstairs? Is there only one point of entry into your home where the construction crew will be tracking in dust and dirt into your personal space all day? Do you have any health concerns that would be exacerbated by dust and other toxins that are stirred up from construction?

Which Area is Being Remodeled?

Pro: Whether the remodel involves a small area or the entire home, it can be really exciting to see the daily progress along with any relics that may be unearthed during the remodel. When the project is finished, you will feel a massive sense of pride and accomplishment after dealing with all the inconveniences of the process.

Con: If your North Phoenix commercial remodel includes a critical space such as the kitchen or bathroom, especially if it is the only available bathroom, keep in mind these rooms may be rendered completely useless for days or even weeks at a time. It is important to communicate with your contractor and know exactly when you will be unable to use certain areas of your home.

If the kitchen is on your remodeling list, plan ahead to organize a makeshift kitchen. Find a way to wash dishes and to cook in a separate area so you do not have to rely solely on takeout for the next few weeks.

Check Your Budget

Pro: Generally, remodeling is less expensive than purchasing or building a whole new home. Planning your budget ahead and working closely with your contractor to ensure the project stays within those financial limits will make the project much less stressful overall.

Con: If your remodel involves needing to leave your home and stay in a hotel, or eat out because your kitchen is useless, there needs to be room inside your budget for those extra expenses. This is not necessarily a bad thing, it is just important to be aware of before beginning your remodeling process.
