Staying on Schedule - ©onairWe know projects can run long and go over the deadline.  We also know how important it is to stay on schedule and that’s exactly what our flooring experts are all about! Remodeling is incredibly disruptive to your life, so our ultimate goal is to get in and get out as quickly as possible, as well as on time. Here at Floor Coverings International of White Bear Lake, we want to pass on some tips on how to keep your projects on running smoothly.

Don’t Budge on Your Budget

Everyone has a budget and it can be hard to stick to it when unforeseen circumstances come up. Before you start your flooring project, take a second look at your budget and be sure you have some wiggle room in case there are unforeseen costs. One of the main factors that will prolong a project is if money runs out. Many projects are put on hold because of this, but flooring is not a project that can be left undone.

Making a Schedule and Sticking to It

It can be difficult to make a schedule in the first place because there are several people to coordinate with. Once you’ve made a schedule, stick to it as closely as possible. It’s true that certain last minute events are unavoidable, but if you or anyone else cannot be at the house, the contractor can’t be either and then the project is held up. Establish clear communication for the flooring timeline.  Your flooring professionals should be able to provide you with a good idea of how long they will need to be in your home.

Possible Permits

Be sure to look up what permits you might need to remodel properly. Obtain your required permits as soon as you conclude a budget and schedule. Permits are important for resale, so you will want your house to be up-to-code. If it’s not, you could end up spending a lot of money remodeling the flooring all over again when trying to sell!
