WHAT TO EXPECT

Renovations can sometimes be an inconvenience by causing noise, dust and debris. Zumin aims to mitigate these effects by working during regular hours (9am – 6pm), masking off working areas and covering floors/furniture where applicable. Please see the list below of what to expect during your renovation.

DUST

Even with sealed off rooms, dust can still escape and create a thin layer on furniture, TVs and in other rooms of your home. All vents are sealed prior to renovating to protect your HVAC systems from damage and to help avoid unnecessary dust circulating through your home.

NOISE

Drills, saws and hammers cause incessant and often annoying sounds and vibrations. While we attempt to minimize the use of these machines and tools, they are an integral part of any renovation. We recommend scheduling renovations when these sounds will not be an inconvenience..

LOSS OF USE

During kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations or whole home renovations the loss of the rooms under renovation is more than likely. We recommend budgeting and planning for easy meal options when doing a kitchen renovation, a central shared bathroom during bathroom renovations and alternate living arrangements when doing whole home renovations. We know that renovations are an inconvenience, and our dedicated project managers will work with your schedule to help minimize the duration of such inconveniences.

PROJECT CHANGES

Surprises on reality shows like “Love it or List It” create dramatic moments, but in reality these surprises can create panic. Zumin anticipates many surprises and plans for them in advance. Despite our best efforts, change orders may be necessary during any renovation. We do our best to be prepared, but sometimes unfavourable discoveries are unavoidable when the project starts. We always recommend having a budget of 5-10% of your project’s total budget as a contingency.

DELAYS

Zumin Kitchen and Bath strives to under-promise and over-deliver, but the world is not perfect and neither are we. Communication is of utmost importance here at Zumin, and if we predict any delays you will be notified well in advance.

DECISIONS

Our designers and consultants will work closely with you to pick out faucets, knobs, tiles, colours, floors…everything you will need to make during your renovation. The decision is ultimately yours!
