The Challenges of Working from Home

Working from HomeIn the past year, a lot of people have learned a lot about working from home. To promote social distancing and keep people safe, many companies are allowing more and more employees to work remotely rather than having to commute to a centralized office space.

While this can reduce costs and improve efficiencies for workers, it can be problematic for home improvement contractors. Rather than having free reign of a home to replace kitchens, paint interiors, or tear out and rebuild bathrooms, we now have to be more cognizant of the fact that there are often people doing important work on the other side of a wall.

Lessons Learned

At a time when many people are investing more to improve their homes, many are also spending a lot more time in them That can create a challenge for people like painters, carpenters, electricians, and plumbers who are accustomed to working more independently.

Fortunately, in recent months we’ve had a lot of practice. So we have learned to work quietly, efficiently, and constantly aware that clients are likely to always be around. When we know you are going to be home, we will keep our radios turned low (of turned off completely) and keep loud, annoying jobs like hammering or demolition to your downtimes.
