Grabbing a measuring tape and mapping out a space can seem like a no-brainer. But there is more to this process than meets the eye. One of the number one causes for mistakes and hang-ups in renovations is incorrect measurements. Why is this? Incorrect measurement recordings can cause:
- Too much or too little product. There is nothing worse than wasting your time and money. And that is exactly what you will do if you end up with the wrong amount of material for your project. An oversight in measurement can skew the numbers in such a way that it makes ordering flooring a nightmare. If you order too much, you may be spending more than you actually want or need to. If you order too little, you can spend weeks waiting for the replacement materials to arrive. This can halt the renovation project indefinitely. Avoid the hangups and make sure your numbers are right on your order with proper measurements.
- Bad results. Imagine if you are cutting a slab of marble for a countertop. Now picture that you misjudged the measurements and the beautiful, expensive slab you purchased is now rendered useless. This is the fate of many homeowners who choose to do their home measurements themselves. It can happen in just about any project and any application. A strangely shaped space might not have the right flooring to fit, a lighting fixture might be too big or too small to work in your kitchen or bathroom. The sink might be too small, or the counter might be too long. Avoid annoying and costly mistakes by having the space measured by someone who knows what they are doing.
- Endless frustration. It can be stressful enough trying to renovate your home. Doing it alone can make the burden that much worse. Having professionals on your side to turn to for suggestions or help can make things a lot less stressful for you. You will not have to worry about taking extra time off of work because you will know that the job will be completed quickly.
