How to Overcome Supply Chain Issues With Your Home Remodel
As we are all aware, the current supply chain delays are causing a world of issues, especially in the construction industry. Currently, we don’t know how long these delays will last, so what we can give you is some advice on how to manage the current climate to complete your home renovation. We have put together 5 factors to consider when planning your home remodel.
As the current climate refuses to budge in a positive direction, it is important to have flexibility across the board. Flexibility with your timeline is essential. Remodeling is taking a little longer than usual as sourcing materials becomes more challenging. Flexibility with materials can also help you in this process. If you keep your mind open to alternative materials, this could work in your favor and result in your remodel job completed faster. However, we don’t want you skimping on your dreams, so it's imortant to be patient. Don’t settle on a kitchen cabinet that you may regret down the track. It’s better to take it slow and work with a flexible timeline, than to change too many aspects of your dream remodel just to get it done.
2. Break it up
If your remodel does not have a hard end date, it could be wise to break it into phases. Tackle one section at a time. This way you wont be completely overwhelmed by delays and lead times across the entire project. If you can do one section at a time, you could have smaller sections completed one by one instead of multiple sections of your remodel pending completion. This will help you feel more in control of the entire project despite the current supply chain. Complete the bathroom first and have a fully functioning room before planning and moving on to the next.
With supply chain delays also comes price fluctuations. Supply and demand. You know the drill. With any project you tackle, it is important to set aside additional funds in case the budget is exhausted. Unfortunately, we are seeing under-budgeting in the industry fairly frequently in the current climate. You don't want to be left in hot water and have to scramble for additional funds. It may be worth saving a bit more and starting your remodeling project a little later than planned to ensure you have your safety net in place. We can help you from start to finish planning your budget and buidling in a buffer.
4. Professional Team
Working with a professional remodeling company will be invaluable to your remodeling project. Professionals in the industry are currently well versed in the supply chain. They have industry insight into what materials are available to you and their lead times. They can provide you with multiple options for materials that won’t break the bank or compromise on your dream plans. Their insight is invaluable especially in the current climate. Working with a professionaly team could save you time and money in the long run.
