Cayman’s harsh tropical climate can impact the well-being of your home over time. Regularly enhancing both the exterior and interior of your home is essential for avoiding permanent damage and can also add value if you plan on selling it in the future.
Conversely, renovating a home can simply be about your desire to stay in step with modern aesthetics. Whether it is a simple do-it-yourself project or a full scale renovation, the Island’s impressive selection of professional craftpersons, contractors and homeware stores can help bring your vision to reality.
Before you begin tearing out your kitchen or pulling up floors there are several important steps to take and questions to ask yourself prior to embarking on a design project.
If your renovation project requires any structural, framing, demolition or remodelling work, then you may want to consider employing a construction manager. An experienced construction manager will be able to offer advice on how to improve the layout of a room or home and make the most of a space. They will also be able to advise on the best materials for your project in terms of both sustainability and on-going maintenance to ensure that the renovation lasts and retains its value.
For a complete list of construction management companies see the Building in Cayman section.
