Ah the joy, the excitement and the utter horror of a home remodel. If you’re like most people, you probably fantasize about redoing that old 70s bathroom with the pink toilet or the kitchen from the 1960s. But when it gets down to it, the thought of ripping out floors, tearing down cabinets and chipping away at old tile bathrooms is not a happy thought, especially if you are currently living in that space.
In fact one of the biggest concerns that most people have is the disruption of regular, everyday life that a remodel causes. “Not only can it be loud and disruptive, but it’s usually a messy job that stirs up dust and debris. Homeowners worry about their family being exposed to these particles,” said Chris Jackson, a supervisor with Irvine-based Jackson Demo.
While it may be tempting to take on a demolition job as a do it yourself project, experts caution against it.
“Once you start opening up walls and removing tile from the floors, there can be a lot of unexpected hurdles like leaky pipes, rotting subfloors, or mold in the walls,” Jackson said. “Those are issues that need to be resolved properly before construction can take place.”
Another issue that many homeowners run into is unsafe materials. Walls, ceiling and flooring may contain asbestos and lead. The removal of these materials often requires a state certified consultant who specializes in these substances. Not just any contractor will do in these cases.
