Safety Precautions Often Overlooked During a Remodel

by Chris Bjorklund


Safety should come first when your home is being remodeled. According to Diamond Certified contractor Matthew W. Johnson, your contractor should always make sure that windows which are removed 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.

Another great idea is to continue to use your alarm system, but create an alternate code for the contractor and his subcontractors. When the job is completed, you delete that code and the workers never have access to your personal code for the home alarm system. And finally, Mr. Johnson makes a special point of keeping all of his power tools locked up at night. This way, children and even adults won’t be able to get themselves into any trouble by experimenting with them.
