What Can Cause A Basement Remodel Timeline To Change?
Job complexity. The more work that needs to be done the longer it’ll take to do. Complex remodels can involve adding rooms. More basic remodels are usually quicker.
Damages. If we find any damages before or during the remodel we’ll need to talk about fixing them. We don’t want to leave them or they’ll just get worse and costlier.
Materials. Some materials can take longer to get than others. They may be on backorder or are just harder to find. Custom materials will definitely take longer as they take longer to make.
Change orders. If you want to change something about the project during it the timeline will change. We’ll need to make adjustments and maybe wait on new materials.
