Major Considerations When Ordering Materials for your Renovation

Here Are a Few Major Factors to Consider When Your Choosing Renovation Materials…

When you are planning any home renovations  in Toronto, ordering materials is a top priority. There are several things that you should consider when you are ordering materials for this renovation. Before you start the job you will want to make a list of each type of material that you will need to order. This includes paint, wood, cement, tools, essentially anything that you need com complete the entire renovation project.

When you are making your list you need to make sure that you include the amount of material that you need. It is a good idea to keep track of the paint colors as well as the item numbers when you are completing your orders in case you need to go back to order more at some point during the project. You should also write down the contact name from the place you order the materials from.

It is a good idea to have at least a second choice listed and possibly a third as well. This can be beneficial if the manufacturer is currently out of your first choice material. If the material is not in stock, ask the supplier for an estimated time of arrival.

Know Your Measurements…

This is a must, whether you’re doing a kitchen renovation, bathroom renovation, home addition or a complete design build project. Before you make your order make sure that you double check each of your measurements. A general rule is to order 5% to 10% more than is required. The extra can be stored for potential repairs that may arise.

You should always ask about the delivery options that are available. The delivery person should call you at least an hour before they arrive so that you do not waste a whole day waiting on your materials to arrive.

Once the materials arrive, make sure that you keep a file of all your warranties and receipts, which will contain important information that you may need in the future.
