Updating your home can be an exciting process – and perhaps a tad overwhelming. It is important to stay organized to enjoy the home remodel process. Check out our checklist below to keep you on task and to help with the design stage!

  • Talk to your contractor!  Having a clear conversation with your contractor is important.  Are they working on other projects at the same time as yours? Make sure they know your deadline so they can work around your timetable.
  • Are you responsible for any materials as the homeowner? Ensure you know when they are needed in order to not delay the project.
  • Be prepared for surprises! As with any big project, remodeling can throw you some curve balls. Accordingly, keep those lines of communication open with your contractor and stay updated!
  • Check out VSI!  The Vinyl Siding Institute provides you with vital information such as Finding Certified Installers and Products.
  • Have you tried browsing through Houzz? It can be a great online resource to connect with the pros and browse photos to inspire any home design project.
  • You can also use KAYCAN’s very own Home Designer 2.0; an amazing tool that you and your contractor can use to choose the siding style and color. Our hugely popular Home Designer 2.0 software has a few improvements that will help you show off your design skills. Learn more here!
