How to Handle Delays in Your Reno Projects

It’s no secret that renovating or remodeling a home in Seattle can be wrought with rain delays and issues that are beyond any contractor’s control.

It’s no secret that renovating or remodeling a home in Seattle can be wrought with rain delays and issues that are beyond any contractor’s control. At Eakman Construction, we work hard to ensure our client expectations are met with the reality of the renovation process and we ensure that our clients have all of the information they need to avoid disappointment and frustration. No project is without some kind of delay, but when you work with our expert team, you’ll rest easy knowing that we can get the job done. We help you understand how to handle delays by setting expectations, allowing for open communication and the opportunity to ask questions, and marking milestones so you know how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go together.

Set Expectations

When it comes to working on a renovation project in Seattle, WA, we know that it’s important to take the time to talk through the process with our clients. Ensuring that everyone is on the same page is the first step in handling any delays that may arise. If clients believe that the home will be ready in two months, but it takes six months to complete, then we haven’t done our job. Setting those expectations at the outset of a project means that even if delays occur, clients know what to expect and how we plan to remedy the situation.

Ask Questions

At every turn during the process of renovating or remodeling a home in Seattle, we are available to our clients. This ensures open lines of communication and trust. If we aren’t available to answer questions, or if we haven’t provided enough information at the outset of the project, clients feel left out and disappointed by our work. The goal is always to over deliver, and we do that by ensuring a space is available for our clients to get the answers they need. When you call, we pick up the phone. Someone will be available to tell you what’s going on, when it will happen, and how quickly it can be done.

Mark Milestones

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our years of contracting and building beautiful homes in Kirkland and Seattle, WA, it’s that each step of the process can be marked and tracked. If a contractor tells you, “I don’t know” it’s because they aren’t doing their due diligence to keep their finger on the pulse of the project. Our team knows what’s going on and when and even during delays, we know why, how and where things will pick up again. It’s what we do. It’s not the client’s fault that there is a delay and so we treat every issue with responsibility and professionalism and ensure the project moves closer to the end result every day. How do you handle delays? If we are doing our job correctly, you shouldn’t have to – we handle it for you.
