Honest, open and timely renovation communication is key in all endeavours, and an especially important one for a renovation project. One of the key ways to ensure this, is to have a project manager allocated by your renovator. This person is your go-to person during the entire renovation process, which means that you don’t need to address any issues with timelines, tradespeople, or deliveries with anyone else – that’s their job! And it’s their job to keep the project on track and advise you of any changes to the schedule.
Issues sometimes come to light during construction – may be a key product is delayed or discontinued or maybe something is discovered during demolition that requires attention. If there are changes to products or costs, both you and the renovation company need to sign off and agree on the changes. This document, often known as a variation to contract, outlines the nature of the variations and any changes to costs involved.
Trust is built over time, backed with actions and communication about your renovation project is key!
