Mistakes to Avoid in Commercial Remodeling

You don’t want to have to stop business because of a poorly done commercial remodel. The goal of your remodel is presumably to enhance your building’s aesthetic and functionality. A poorly done remodel will do none of those things. Make sure your commercial remodeling project comes out as planned by avoiding these mistakes. 

Not Doing Enough Research

Make sure you do research before removing one board, tearing down any wall, or scraping any paint. Take time to think about everything that needs to be done. List all of the issues you currently have and use the internet to research possible solutions. You can also talk to a remodeling company to answer some of your remodeling questions. 

Asking Broad Questions

No two projects are the same. It’s unwise to ask contractors broad questions such as “how much will it cost to…” without providing additional information. Reputable remodeling companies won’t feel comfortable giving you a quote without being provided additional details and looking at the space themselves. Provide contractors with photos and/or allow them to come and survey the area themselves to get a proper estimate.

Hiring the Wrong Contractor 

There is an abundance of remodeling contractors around the DMV area, but they all don’t provide the same quality of work. Take some time to look at your options. Don’t choose a contractor based on price alone. Instead, look at online reviews, ask around for references, and call prospects to ask questions. Remember, you’re hiring unique craftsmen that will determine how the end quality will look.                                 

Rushing Through the Project

As a business owner, you probably know that all good things take time. This goes for your commercial remodeling project as well. Don’t make the mistake of having the end date always at the forefront of your mind, this can lead to not enough planning and cutting corners. Instead, set a date, and add a bit of flexibility. Experts suggest adding 10 percent more time than you originally expected to properly complete a project.

Northstar did a great job at a commercial building I own. He soundproofed a large 3 car commercial garage and took care of some draining issues, by installing a 15’ drain and diverting the water away from the building. His estimate was very fair and he completed the work on time. I would recommend him highly .
