A restoration project has a simple mission: get the home back to its original, pre-disaster condition. But that doesn’t mean the restoration work can’t coincide with other plans to upgrade and enhance a home. In fact, tying a restoration project to an upgrade can really work in a homeowner’s favor.
One advantage is using the “down time” of restoration work means not disrupting life at home a second time to handle the upgrade. In some cases, the upgrade can immediately follow the restoration. The two projects may also be in progress simultaneously with respect to each other.
As the written agreement for the restoration gets assembled, a homeowner who is interested in adding some upgrading to areas of the home should make those interests known to the contractor. Adding it afterwards can be accommodated, in some cases, but may slow down the restoration process and alter the delivery of the initial work. Working out the details in advance instead gives a homeowner a more accurate timeline for completion of the work.
Here is one way it could work to restore and upgrade at the same time. A flood causes water damage to a home, prompting the need to repair walls and replace flooring. At the same time, the homeowner now wants wider hallways and doors to allow more ease in mobility for an existing physical condition, the work can be done to meet both objectives.
Aaron’s Restoration is ready to help homeowners in Michigan return to their normal lives at home, and can help upgrade at the same time when that is a homeowner’s plan. The work need not be strictly related to barrier-free services; it could be any general contracting services we provide. Ultimately the goal is to provide a comfortable place for you to live, and extra comforts and convenience are certainly great reasons to go home every day.
