Avoiding Delays in Tampa Remodeling Projects!

There is a lot to think about, select and organize on a Tampa remodeling project, whether it is a single room or a whole-house remodeling plan.  Small remodeling projects often have the same list of tasks as larger projects, and the same potential for material selection and delivery to throw your schedule for a loop.  Anything can go wrong during a Tampa remodeling project, but some parts will cause more difficulty than others.

Here are a couple of areas you should keep an extra close eye on as you plan any Tampa remodeling project for your home.

Cabinets:

Cabinets affect a wide range of tradespeople who are lined-up to work directly after their installation during your Tampa remodeling project.  Flooring, tile and countertop installation are all linked to the casework in both baths and kitchens.  Ordering cabinets requires multiple layers of design and selection, including decisions about room layout; door function; wood and paint; and molding choices.  A field measure will also be a must.

Expect a floor plan and drawings showing how cabinets will look straight-on, with complete measurements and notes.  You will need to approve these before production can begin.

Best Practice:

Narrow the number of wood choices and general style of the cabinets early, so the biggest decisions are out of the way early.  Knowing the lead time from the cabinet shop is also critical, and it will not hurt to add an extra cushion to that to make sure your cabinets arrive on time.

Tile:

When you make tile selections, you will have to consider more than just how it looks after the Tampa remodeling project is complete.  You also need to make sure the tile you select has all of the pieces necessary for installation, a question an architect or a tile setter will be able to answer.  Still, there are times that the tile will arrive with all of the appropriate pieces but it is still not quite right due to color differences from the sample.  The dimensions and colors may not be quite what you saw in the showroom, particularly if you have chosen a natural stone or slate.  It is important to understand that even factory-made tile can vary from one batch to another.

Best Practice:

Ask for a sample from the local tile supplier’s warehouse to ensure that the stock delivered is what you really want for your Tampa remodeling project.

Taking care to correctly measure, allow for extra time in a cabinet order and verify color tile all can help prevent snags from occurring in your Tampa remodeling project.  The team from Rossi Construction, Inc. can also provide additional tips and tricks that you should always take into account, and would be glad to do as such in a private consultation at your home.  You can schedule an appointment by calling our office at 813.436.0177!
