Safety Precautions Often Overlooked During a Remodel

More Savvy Tips

Safety should always come first when your home is being remodeled. According to Diamond Certified contractor Matthew W. Johnson, your contractor should always make sure that any removed windows are boarded up with both plastic and plywood when the carpenters finish for the day. Anyone trying to break in would need a power tool to remove the barriers.

If you want to continue using your alarm system during the project, it’s a good idea to create an alternate code for the contractor and his subcontractors. When the job is completed, you can delete the extra code and ensure no one has access to your personal code. Finally, Mr. Johnson makes a special point of keeping all his power tools locked up at night. This way, children and even adults won’t be able to get into trouble by experimenting with them.
