Coronavirus Lockdown!! – What About the Work on Your Home Remodeling Project?

Currently, due to the pandemic, countless people are facing uncertainty for an undecided and unpredictable period. No doubt, just like any other field of life, COVID-19 has impacted the on-going home remodeling projects too. Want to learn if the home remodeling experts can still work on your project? Go through the following passages, if you want to learn more in this regard.

Let’s check out what the Cabinet minister Michael Gove says. Builders doing their jobs that are critical to the nation and the life of the economy should continue to work even at the time of the coronavirus pandemic. He further says that it would be inappropriate to carry out construction jobs entailing intimate contact in someone’s home, along with remodeling a house where the property owners are still living.

However, according to the homeowners, builders, and architects, the instructions regarding the residential projects are not clear enough. So, this is a concern of almost all the property owners with on-going home remodeling projects – ‘what am I supposed to do in the middle of my major home remodeling project’?

Coronavirus Lockdown!! - What About the Work on Your Home Remodeling Project

Well, you need to consider several factors as follows:

An Essential Project

Now, this is a big issue since the government has not yet clarified the definition of ‘essential’ home remodeling projects. According to the recent government advice (26th March), work that is going on at people’s houses, such as maintenance and repairs, can be carried on. And that will be possible only when the tradesperson is healthy with no symptoms of illness. No need to mention that, at this point, people should follow the guidelines regarding social distancing for the safety of everyone.

According to the membership services at Federation of Master Builders, any work that people need to achieve in a weather-proof and secure site with the safety of the stored material will be a critical work. As NHS reports, people can carry that out by taking all the relevant precautionary measures.

According to experts, people should enforce safe social distancing practices. Property owners, as well as the professionals involved in the remodeling project, should implement all the following on their still-active projects.

  • There should be limited workers as possible. And all present there should practice the measures of safe social distancing at the two-meter distance between each other.
  • The workers arriving at the project site should not be using public transport. They should arrive by van or car.
  • In case the above measures cannot be maintained, all works on the site should cease. People need to review the on-going job for enabling the above as far as possible.
  • Anyone with even mild symptoms of COVID-19 should avoid being on the project site. They should follow the government guidelines and remain at home for 14 days.

What To Do If Your Household Is Self-Isolating?

Well, in this regard, the government has clear advice that people should continue no work in any household that is self-isolating or where a person is shielded.
