Orem Home Remodeling Myths: DIY, Move-Out, Home State

Any realm that becomes very popular and useful also tends to develop a few myths surrounding it, and the world of home remodeling is sadly no exception. There are a few major misconceptions out there about this process that some people truly believe — these can cost you both money and time if you’re not careful, and may even ruin your plans for a given remodel in some cases.

At Crown Finish, remodeling services are just some of the broad range of handyman solutions we offer to clients throughout Orem, from basement remodeling and finishing to numerous other parts of the home. We’ve heard a number of the most common pieces of misinformation about remodeling homes, and we’re here to set clients straight so they have the proper info with which to make their decisions. This two-part blog series will go over the most frequent home remodeling myths and debunk them.

Myth #1: It’s Cheaper to Do a DIY Remodel On Your Own

While there are certain areas of life where do-it-yourself (DIY) projects are a great way to save some money, the realm of home remodeling simply isn’t one of them. This can be a dangerous misconception, and unless you have the proper knowledge base, not only could your home end up looking worse for wear, but you may even get hurt in the process.

The simple fact is that there are many tasks involved with home renovations that are beyond novice skill level, so trying to do one by yourself can result in a botched job or a project that never gets done. On top of that, you don’t want to risk hurting yourself just to save a little money! We strongly recommend going with the pros for any remodeling need — it will save you money and hassle.

Myth #2: You Have to Move Out During a Remodel

Our remodeling professionals are quite used to working within a limited space and around home occupants, so you never have to worry about having to move out during a renovation. Of course, there are some projects that require more extensive work in which case it is beneficial to shut down activity for a while — but most honest professional contractors will let you know when this is necessary.

Myth #3: The Home Will Be a Disaster During the Remodel

Some have an image in their mind of a disaster zone during any sort of renovations, but this is usually not the case. Well-organized professionals keep the worksite clean and safe, so you don’t have to worry about little messes or safety hazards that don’t actually affect your daily life. And if there are any areas where some level of mess will be present, we’ll be sure to inform you of this well in advance so you can prepare.
