Going through a kitchen remodeling project can be overwhelming, yet also worth it when it’s planned and executed properly. But keep in mind, there will always be a few surprises during the remodeling process that may add to your overall budget. To help you out, our team at Nuss Construction Company discusses some of the most common surprises you may encounter:
Unexpected Water Damage
While your contractor works on your kitchen remodel, they might find several water stains on your walls and ceiling. These may come from moldy sheathing or rotted rafters, so the repair job may not be simple depending on the damage. This should be addressed as soon as possible, or else the damage can affect your new kitchen, and you’ll end up paying for additional repairs. By anticipating the surprises and addressing the problems early on, you won’t have to worry about going beyond your budget!
If your kitchen walls have water damage closer to the ground, they may indicate a pest infestation. Termites are likely culprits, and the only way to effectively eliminate the infestation is to take down the affected wall and flooring, and remodel that part of the home. This can be costly especially if the problem was only found at the later stages of the renovation process. To avoid unwanted costs, make sure to get a termite inspection before the kitchen remodelers start their work.
Sometimes, additional materials may be needed during the remodeling process. For instance, even if the contractor does most of the cleaning each day, you might have to buy cleaning materials because of the amount of dirt and debris accumulated from the kitchen remodel. After the kitchen remodels, you may also need to hire additional labor to clean the dirt and dust in your ventilation system that accumulated from the remodeling process.
