Custom Renovations: A Step-By-Step Guide

Coming up with the right renovation strategy can be difficult when you can’t seem to find the proper resources. Even when you hire a construction company to help with your renovation, you’ll likely want to know everything there is to know about them in order to better communicate with your contractors. Here at Lions Den Construction, we have come up with a blog post outlining the ins and outs of a typical renovation process.

The Step-By-Step Process

  1. Brainstorming: This part in the project is crucial to the overall plans & implementation of said plans down the road. In this step, you can truly begin to outline what your vision is for your space. During this time you will want to try and cover all bases possible. Ask yourself questions about what you need & don’t need, what materials you want to use, what overarching style you want for your space, etc.
  2. Make a layout: Once all of the brainstorming has been completed, it is time to get down to brass tacks and come up with a professional layout draft. A floor plan is necessary if you want to ensure an organized and time efficient project overall. 
  3. Wish for the best but prepare for the worst: When planning a renovation, always have back up plans in case something goes awry. This includes saving 10% or more of your budget for what’s considered “emergency funding”. If you hire the right company you reduce your chances of coming across this risk, but it is always important to be prepared.

How to Choose the Right Renovators

If you want your renovation to be completed in the best way possible, it is important that you choose the right people for the job. This advice on it’s own is not enough, however, as you’ll want to know how to find these people amongst the large pool of renovation businesses that are currently available. Luckily for you, we have come up with a few tips on how to do so:

  • See how much experience they have. This one speaks for itself, but still remains extremely important regardless. In general, the more experience a company has in the field, the more knowledgeable and capable they will be of completing your project in the best manner possible.
  • Are their previous projects available to look at? Some of the most reputable renovation companies out there will make it known that their work is good. This means displaying their previous projects on their websites or social media so others can get an idea of what they can expect for their upcoming renovation. 
  • Do they have more favourable reviews than negative ones? When you go to search their business online, do they have reviews that work in their favour? Are these reviews full of the good things about what they do or are only filled with negatives? Through online reviews, you can see exactly what past customers had to deal with. If there are any overwhelmingly good or bad qualities about a certain company, they will be apparent in their online reviews. When it comes down to it, try to hire a company that has more positive reviews than mediocre or negative ones.
