Let’s face it, accidents happen. They can happen to anyone, anywhere. No matter how careful a work crew may try to be, it is wise to take steps to protect your home and your belongings from damage during remodeling, renovation or construction of an addition. Here are a few smart steps that will help you protect your property:

  • Move fragile items from the work area and from access areas
  • Move valuables to a safe location – a safe deposit box, a family member’s home
  • Instruct your children not to leave things lying around where they could be damaged
  • Cover your plants and shrubs
  • Seal off the work area to prevent fumes and dust from entering the rest of the house
  • Designate a walkway for workers through your landscaping, and possibly lay down plywood to walk on
