Once you’ve worked with a building contractor to agree on a quote and schedule of work, it’s not long to go until your builders can get started on the project. While this can be exciting for some, for others, the prospect of their home being turned into a construction site can prove to be a bit daunting. This is especially true for customers investing in home improvements for the first time. To help your local builder produce their best work and help you through the construction period, here are some useful tips to follow before work commences.
For your safety and to allow your builders to focus on doing the best job possible, it’s important to consider how you will accommodate their presence on your property. Before construction begins, consider making the following arrangements:
When you have construction work in your Ealing home, it’s not just your daily life that can be affected. If you live in close proximity to your neighbours, you will need to make them aware of the work that’s about to begin so they can make their own preparations. Considering how noisy and disruptive construction work can be, you want to make sure you give your neighbours plenty of advance warning so that you can maintain a good relationship with them in the future.
If you have any pets or young children, it’s useful to let your building contractor know. They can advise on how to keep your Ealing property safe for them during construction, especially if you choose to live on-site. You will also need to consider how you look after your belongings in the affected area of your home that’s being worked on. Some items can be redistributed into other rooms of your home, or, in some cases, you may need to arrange for certain things to be placed in storage for the duration of the work. Harm to you, your loved ones or your belongings is the last thing you and your local builder want to happen, so it’s important to take all necessary precautions to avoid this.
