Q: What are questions that homeowners should probably ask before doing a major remodel, but never do?
Just curious about questions that don't get asked by homeowners, but probably should. There must be a boat load of questions that homeowners would ask a contractor if they were more educated and/or less embarrassed.
A: questions to ask before a major remodel
That's a tough one, because we try very hard to answer any and all questions prior to starting. But here are a few:
-Designated jobsite bathrooms: either an existing bathroom for workers to use, or a rented port-o-let
-homeowner pets: what happens is the family dog gets loose?
-smoking: we DO NOT allow smoking on the jobsite, some contractors may. If so, where is the designated area?
-cost overruns: how much should you set back for potential overages in selections?

A: A couple of additional questions.
The above questions are all great examples of some questions that might be overlooked. A couple more are:
- Designated parking area: on occasion there may be a few more than one vehicle at the job site and if parking is a question it should be outlined.
- Garbage removal: some times a remodel can be handled to wear the owner can take care of the trash, and others are too large and a dumpster needs to be rented. Make sure to answer this before so that there are no surprises. I hope this is helpful.
