8 Hidden Remodeling Expenses You Probably Haven't Considered In Greenville Nc
Based on Houzz, an American website and online community about architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home improvement’s 2018 study of renovation trends, 46% of US homeowners went over budget on their remodeling or renovation projects. Such figures trigger a significant concern and at an alarming rate for US homeowners which should be addressed with awareness and caution.
No Limit Contracting & Design, your new construction-home improvement-remodeling contractor in Greenville NC, with combined 50+ years in the construction industry by both owners and specializing in new construction, commercial, custom renovations and remodels discuss eight hidden remodeling expenses for every homeowner who has plans of remodeling or renovation projects.
Hidden Expense No. 1: Complete List of Project Expenses
It has been a common misconception for most homeowners for not making a detailed list of expenses for a certain project. Commonly, the ‘always assuming‘ attitude with the overconfidence of no-limit budget are the primary culprits. However, some may make a list of general expenses but unknowingly forgot the small items like accessories, designs, and miscellaneous items come along with it. Like for example in a kitchen remodeling, budgeting for major items like appliances, cabinets, and manpower, but not listing the minor ones like backsplash tiles, light fixtures, and garbage disposals.
Hidden Expense No. 2: Hidden Construction Issues
Always remember that in any construction project, everything is connected. The same applies to any residential house like a kitchen that needs expansion will be bought down. For example, a load-bearing wall that needs to be torn down unknowingly has connections to the critical electrical wiring of the whole house, and plumbing pipes and gases. You might ask your contractor’s advice, engineer or architect first if the original foundation wall is simply decorative, structural or functional, for certain these professionals should know before making the decision unless they are of unlicensed or fly-by-night contractors.
Hidden Expense No. 3: Demolition Costs.
Another small forgotten expense is the demolition costs. Most homeowners neglect this initial part of the construction process, the manpower to demo the project including the labor to remove the materials to another location. Even if you make it as your Do-It-Yourself small project to spend most of your spare time productive, you still have to pay for the disposal cost or for the truck to haul away the debris. Always think thoroughly the project costs from the start to finish, to assure a more successful project budgeting.
Hidden Expense No. 4: Damages from Water Leaks.
A lot of houses have hidden secret issues especially the plumbing or electrical problems. Usually, water damages can be discovered until you open up the water connections for a new renovation kitchen works. It is advisable to review the water bill on a regular basis for any changes in your water bills. If the water bill is soaring up, possibly there could be a water leak somewhere in the house. Immediately call the professionals and have them checked.
Hidden Expense No. 5: Damages by Termites.
It's not uncommon to discover a house under a termite infestation, may it be old or newly built. Termites or wood destroying insects are nearly everywhere, except Antarctica, with most living in tropical and subtropical regions. In the U.S., termites are mostly found in warm areas of the country but are found in all 50 states except Alaska. Alone, the cost for termite removal will eat the project budget slowly, however, this can be prevented by having a regular house termite check-up and calling in the termite exterminators.
Hidden Expense No. 6: Over Estimating and Neglecting Livable Space .
Most homeowners who want to sell their house, add too many fixtures, but unknowingly forgot the value of space living. While fancy fixtures are great, they don’t directly give a value on a ‘price-per-square-foot basis, square footage does’, as suggested by real estate agents and property investment specialists. Quality of space is a big factor for most buyers, which any homeowner seller should not neglect to increase the chance of not limiting customer prospects.
Hidden Expense No. 7: Doing it as a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Project.
While making it as your small or ‘making yourself productive‘ project may save you big bucks, however, there are some projects better left to the professionals to lessen potential and unwanted problems. A simple example is a furnace installation, where improper venting can cause hazards due to gas leaks which can be life-threatening to you and your family. Other notable projects better left to the professionals such as replacement of electrical panels, remodeling of bathrooms and replacement of gutters.
Hidden Expense No. 8: Unlicensed Contractor will be More Costly in the Long Run.
You may save a lot of money by hiring the ‘next-door all-around guy’, but there are consequences which will cost more than saving a few bucks if he is not licensed, contractor. First, most home renovation projects require permits and it would be hard for the unlicensed contractor to get one. Permits, such as demolition a part of a house, electrical and plumbing replacements, and even water heater replacements. These can be avoided by calling city's code enforcement department, which has a list of legal contractors.
