Ok, there are some cons to doing home renovations while you’re away – mostly to do with the expense and bother of finding and living in a different house. Trust us though, after 150 years of combined experience, we have found that homeowners regard moving out of your current home as the best option in the long run.
If you time it right, your remodeling home improvement projects can be done while you are on vacation which offers all the benefits with none of the hassle. Talk about a win-win plan!
Avoid the Dust
Seldom, if ever, does a home renovation not involve copious amounts of dust for days on end. Especially if your upgrades involve a new tiled bathroom or pristinely sanded hardwood flooring – the spread of dust and potential toxins is mind-blowing.
By the end of the day, you may find yourself chomping on some grit between your teeth.
Avoid the Noise
Sound pollution is a real threat when a remodeled home requires noisy machinery. Not only is it difficult to function with so much loud noise, but it can also possibly damage your hearing. While the machine operators wear protective ear plugs, the rest of your household may not be prepared.
Even manual work can be distractingly noisy – think of hammering in nails and pulling down cabinets.
Job Completed More Quickly
Even with a contractor who can handle making big changes in small quarters, the process of remodeling your older home will always go more smoothly, and therefore more quickly, when they don’t have to work around your scheduling movements.
Avoid the Inconvenience
Just three words should convince you: temporary kitchen and toilet.
Living without functioning plumbing or fixtures for even a few hours can lead to high levels of frustration. Now add to that a new floor you can’t walk on, the dust and noise discussed above, and any inevitable delays… you get the picture!
By the time your renovation is complete, you may well have lost all love for it. Rather just move out or, even better, go away and leave the inconvenience and stress behind. Coming home to a completed remodel will be pure delight!
