Help! My Remodeler Has Moved In: Questions To Ask Your Remodeler

Remodeling may take a while but the end result is worth it. We know the time it takes may be frustrating. Also, we know you might have some other questions for your remodeler. 

So we’ve compiled a list of questions you might have and some answer. 

1. How Long Will It Take to Remodel?

There’s no easy answer to this question. A kitchen remodel is different than a basement remodel. Also, it depends on the size of your project and what kind of materials you want to use. 

However, there are some things that can help you get a better idea of how long it will take. For example the size of your home affects how quickly a remodeler can get the job done. 

2. Where Will You Store Materials?

While you may be thinking of hiring a home remodeling contractor, something you don’t want is for the contractor to get into an argument with you about where to store the materials.

You should have a place to store everything. The same can be said for your home remodeling contractor. If he has all of his supplies stored in one location, then he will have no problems at all having his own storage space. 

This is something you want to discuss with your Indiana remodeler before you start your contract. 

3. Where Will You Stay In My House?

Asking a home remodeling contractor where they will be staying during the renovation is an important question for a few reasons. 

First, it will give you an idea of how much space in your home will be occupied by the contractor and their team, which can impact your daily routine and privacy. Secondly, it will allow you to address any potential safety or security concerns, such as ensuring that only authorized personnel are in certain areas of the house.

And finally, it will help you plan for any necessary accommodations, such as providing a separate entrance or designated work area for the contractor.

4. Where Will Contractors Use The Restroom?

This is a question that should be asked in advance, especially if you don’t want your home to be littered with toilet paper or used coffee cups. 

Contractors will need access to restrooms, and it may be necessary for them to use yours while they are on site.

If this is the case, then you should make sure that your contractor has plenty of toilet paper, soap, and hand towels at their disposal—otherwise they may use up what you have stockpiled in your own bathroom.

5. Will It Be Loud? If So How Long?

If you have a tight schedule and don’t want interruptions, then you should ask your contractor how long they expect the job to take. 

If they say that it will be noisy for several hours at a time, then this is an issue to discuss with your remodeler. If you don’t want to hear the sound of saws and hammers, then you should make sure that your contractor is willing to work at night or on weekends when you aren’t home. 

This will ensure that they are not disturbing any other members of your household or neighbors—and also allow them to get their work done faster.

6. Will You Need Access To the Garage? How Above Front Yard?

Asking a remodeling contractor whether they will need access to the garage or above the front yard is important for a few reasons. 

Firstly, it will give you an idea of the scope of the project and how it may impact your daily routine. For example, if the contractor needs access to the garage, it may mean that you won’t be able to park your car there during the renovation process. 

Similarly, if the contractor needs access above the front yard, it may mean that you won’t be able to use the front yard as you normally would. Again, these details can be easily worked out over the phone or email with whomever you work with. 


In conclusion, when planning a home remodel, it’s important to ask your remodeler these important questions to ensure a smooth and successful project. 

Questions such as the length of the project, where materials will be stored and where contractors will stay and use the restroom, can help you plan and prepare for the remodel. 

Additionally, it’s important to consider factors such as noise level and access to areas such as the garage and front yard.  By asking these questions and getting clear answers, you can ensure that your home remodel goes as smoothly as possible.

We understand your frustrations and we always try to minimize problems.
