Nearing the end of your remodeling project?
Have you thought about creating a “punch list,” which details any outstanding items that need to be taken care of? These Punch Lists can be extremely helpful when making sure you and your project manager agree that the project is completed. A completed Punch List ensures that the contractor will be paid any remaining money owed by the homeowner, so this goes hand in hand with both parties agreeing that the project is complete.
Now, what kinds of things should be on this Punch List?
Paint. Issues or mistakes made with the painting on a project tend to easy to identify. Make sure the color matches the one you selected. Additionally, check for drips and blemishes on the walls, you may need to feel the walls with your hands for smaller imperfections.
Tile. Take a moment to visually inspect any and all tile work that was completed on your project. You can inspect the work with your eyes as well as by touch, feel for raised tiles and inconsistent spacing.
Lighting and Electrical. Test your lights by turning everything on and leaving them on for a while. Make sure there is no flickering or dimming of the lights.
Plumbing. Turn on and off the water in any sink, bathtub, shower, and flush the toilets. Leave the water on to ensure that the water heats up and stays warm, similarly that the water gets cold and remains cold. Check that water is draining and pipes are not leaking.
Talking with your project manager about any discovered issues will ensure that they are resolved in a timely manner. Our project managers will work with you to ensure your satisfaction on the final product before the project is marked as completed.
