If your commercial building is due for some remodeling, you likely have a handful of questions. There are even more that you might not have considered asking a contractor or building company yet. We’ve compiled some of the questions and concerns that are necessary to think about with commercial remodeling!
Can your business remain open during the remodel?
This truly depends on what type of renovations you’re having done. Some will restrict your space temporarily, which means that you can’t accommodate customers as you typically do.
In order to truly know the answer to this question, you should talk with a contractor. They can give you all the information you need, including the duration of the remodel and how invasive it might be.
Will your customers be able to see the renovations while they’re being completed?
Some business owners don’t want their visitors to see the construction. Even if you keep the remodel work out of your customers’ sight, they can probably smell and hear what’s going on. Talk to the contractor about how this could affect your business.
Of course, you do have the option to just let your customers know what’s going on. Most of them shouldn’t be too bothered by the remodel, especially if you tell them about the new and improved features to come.
How do you know if you have picked the right contractor?
Remodeling can be a pretty big deal. There’s a lot to keep track of, and you want to make sure that it goes as smoothly as possible.
When you’re getting quotes for the project, you should ask the contractor as many questions as you can come up with. Ask them about what steps they would take and the duration of the project. You can also ask for references or see if they’ve completed similar remodels in the past.
A commercial remodel might seem overwhelming when you first start the process. It will be worth it, especially if you know the right questions to ask and get the answers you need.
