What’s the first step in every home exterior renovation? Get your neighbors on your side.
Exterior renovations can be noisy and disruptive to the neighborhood. The best way to keep your neighbors on your good side is to give them a heads-up about the work being done so they aren’t caught off guard. In today’s post, Universal Roofing & Exteriors, your trusted drywall contractor, shares common mistakes to avoid:
1. Picking an Unprofessional Team
Do not underestimate manners. Your budget is important, but so is the professionalism of the team you hire. Nothing can replace the human factor in every renovation project. Hire a team that will be considerate and respectful not just of you but your neighbors as well. You can ask them to keep the noise down as much as possible and to clean debris such as the drywall repair scraps that may get into your neighbor’s property.
2. Failing to Reach Out
Always be available for your neighbors. You’ll be surprised how much they’ll appreciate the small gesture of giving out your contact information. This way, you’re acknowledging that your project may cause some noise, but making it clear that you’re listening to any concerns and will do your part to help minimize the disruption.
3. Not Keeping Them Updated
Let your neighbors know what to expect. Will there be a big dumpster in front of your house? How long will the noise persist? Keeping your neighbors on the same page will eliminate confusion and help avoid conflict.
4. Going Beyond Schedule
Do not shock them with noise early in the morning or late at night. Keep in mind that 9 to 5 is a magic number; stick to it. Make sure that your crew’s working hours will be kept on normal working days and hours. You don’t want to disturb the neighborhood when they are having their relaxation time – unless you want trouble.
