As a bathroom remodeling Mansfield contractor, safety on site is huge priority for us. A home renovation project can have a wide array of scope, from something small such as a backsplash tile to larger size like a home addition. However, no matter the size of the project, there is always the opportunity for injury, whether it could be the contactor or the homeowner and his/her family and pets. Here are some tips to help protect you and family members during your next project:
Background Check – the first thing you should do is hire a reputable bathroom remodeling Mansfield contractor. Make sure they are insured, visit with references, and make sure they are licensed if your state has a licensing policy (Texas does not).
Security or Locks – You might look into getting a smart lock that allows you to monitor the comings and goings of workers in your home via your smart phone. It also allows you to change the codes once the project is over so that contractor does not have the access code to your home.
Keep Kids and Pets away from the project area, including outside where there might be power tools. We do a lot of flooring projects in addition to being a bathroom remodeling Mansfield company. So we typically will have a saw plugged in constantly just outside a door so that we can cut wood or laminate and if a kid had access to it, it could be ugly.
Consider boarding your pet depending on the duration of the project. There likely will be lots of noise and lots of strangers that could agitate your pet if they are used to a quiet home. So if the project is a few days, look at the possibility of boarding them or visiting a family/friend.
