The Smart Reno team is well aware of the impacts COVID-19 has on the renovation industry. As we navigate through this uncertainty, we want to share some thoughts with you as we all navigate this rapidly evolving situation together.

Health

First and foremost, our community's health and safety is our top priority. We do hope that you and your families are keeping safe.

Our website will remain functional and you can continue to reach our team by email or phone. We are happy to stay in touch to help you navigate through these challenging times.

Government imposed guidelines

As government guidelines are revised on a daily basis, we encourage both homeowners and contractors to follow the guidelines in their jurisdiction and adjust their normal way of doing business accordingly.

Some impacts may include:

  • Delayed projects for homeowners;
  • Delayed responses for new project submissions;
  • Delayed in-person visits from contractors for a quote;
  • Some materials may be temporarily out of stock.
What we can do in the meantime

Homeowners can continue to submit projects on our website, and take this time to thoroughly plan your home renovation projects to be ready once business resumes. As a reminder, Smart Reno offers a free Cost Estimator to help you plan your next renovation project.

We encourage our network of contractors to continue to engage in conversations with homeowners using alternative options like phone and video. Contractors can also submit quotes remotely, and help clients plan their next renovation to ensure they're prepared for the future.

4 key points to remember when planning a project with a general contractor

There are many reasons why you may want to go through a general contractor: building, renovating or even extending your home.

No matter your project, we can recommend the specialists that best match your request with professionalism, speed, and a complete respect of your ideas. A general contractor has considerable skills in many areas of construction, making it advisable to call one for large-scale multidisciplinary work.

In order to plan your project in the best way possible, it is important to keep the following points in mind:

A general contractor is not a specialized contractor

Do not mistakenly confuse these two experts: they do not have the same skills or the same qualifications! A general contractor has all the qualifications to supervise any type of work. A specialist contractor will only have specific skills in certain areas. These skills are certified by the RBQ.

Be sure to understand each other well

In order to avoid problems with misunderstanding each other, make sure you fully understand your general contractor. Be clear about your project and don’t hesitate to go over your expectations in detail. In doing so, you ensure that the expert has a clear vision of the work and your satisfaction will be guaranteed!

Know how to differentiate in-house or outsourced work

Depending on the professional and the availability of their teams, a contractor may choose to hire companies to subcontract part of the work: roofing, electricity, foundations, etc. If you are concerned, do not hesitate to speak with your expert: he can reassure you about his choice of subcontractors and their skillset.

Delay and logistics management

One of the advantages of a general contractor is that his skills allow him to manage team coordination, inventory of materials and deadlines. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the logistics of your project.
