Home renovations in Seattle, WA are on the rise. Rather than moving to a different part of town, more and more homeowners are seeing the value of investing in their existing properties and putting thousands of dollars of upgrades and additions into their homes. Whether your home has a small footprint and you want to build vertically to capture more space, or you want to rework the layout of your home so that you can have more or different space to enjoy, the crew at Eakman Construction can help. If you are thinking about jumping into a home renovation project this year, we want to make sure you are as prepared as possible. Here are some tips to help you get ready for what will surely be a wild and rewarding experience.
Do your homework.
Before you get into any remodeling project, you need to do some homework to find out what kind of style, space, and layout you want to achieve with your project. Of course, the more work you want to complete, the more money it’s going to cost – but more on that in just a minute. Doing your homework means that you and your family need to explore how you use your space currently and make a list of what you’d like, what would be nice to have, and what you absolutely can’t live without. Think big, but conduct your research in a realistic way.
Talk about the money.
Money talks when it comes to home remodeling projects. If you have an unrealistic budget for your over-the-top renovation, you’ll be disappointed from the start. A good rule of thumb is whatever you think it’s going to cost you at first glance, be prepared to pay more. That’s why it’s so important to work with an experienced and professional home remodeling company in Seattle, WA. When you work with a high-quality company that has a reputation for doing great work, you’ll be able to sleep soundly at night knowing that you are getting the best bang for your buck.
Ask for referrals.
When it comes to choosing your contractor or home remodeling company, be sure to ask around. Don’t take our word for it – we aren’t the right home remodeling company for everyone in Seattle, WA, and any contractor that tells you they are is not being realistic about the industry and customer needs.

Clean your house out.
When you are getting ready to start into your project, it’s important that you take some time to remove larger items from your home and clear the clutter. Of course, this helps to keep your belongings safe and sound while your home is being renovated, but also, it makes it easier to keep clean and prevents unnecessarily delays when our crew has to move equipment and supports to complete a job. Plus, once your home is completely updated, you’ll be thinking twice about bringing everything back into the new room that was once there. Scale back and take back only what you love.
