‘Tis the season for hunkering down at home and celebrating the holiday season. As you turn on the fireplace, dress up your home with festive decor or shovel the sidewalk, you might start to take a mental list of all the improvements you dream of that would make your home the ultimate space for your family.
As we end the year and begin another, consider making that list a reality sooner rather than later. Home renovations in Calgary have seen extended lead times for some key materials and fixtures that your project wouldn’t be complete without!
Why the delay?
Home renovations involve many moving parts, from building permits to design to the actual remodel itself. So when some pieces of the puzzle are thrown off course, it can mean that your project suddenly has an extended timeline. Home improvement projects in Calgary could experience delays this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take steps to make the whole process a lot smoother for everyone involved.
Be selective with material finishes
If you have a specific look in mind for your home, the finishes that you choose can play a role in the timeline of your project. When working with us, we’ll talk finishes for your project and ensure that lead times are a part of the decision-making process so there are fewer surprises along the way. If you have a general vision and are open to different finish options, then you’ll likely find this step pretty easy.
Plan for material holdups
Recently, renovation companies in Calgary have noticed longer wait times for custom glass, tile, laminate, various paint products, plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures and or rough in material. Some items have become surprisingly hard to get your hands on at the moment! If your project involves these types of materials , it’ll be important to be proactive and plan well in advance to get them.
Brace yourself for the unpredictable.
If these past couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that things can change in a flash. We create timelines with buffers, but sometimes even the best-laid plans have to be shifted. Communication lines will always be open, and we’ll keep you posted about changes to the project schedule as we go.
With a little bit of forethought, combating these extended timelines can be simple, not stressful.
