What Changes Might I Notice in My Newly Remodeled Spaces?


After your remodeling project is complete, you may feel relief, excitement and renewed pride in your renovated home. And, after the dust has settled (literally) and you begin to live your remodeled space, you may notice some of the following items. Many of these changes occur due to seasonal changes, fluctuations in your home’s temperature and the materials’ response to the environment (natural elements like wood can swell with moisture). Many of these items occur in most remodeling jobs, so Merrick offers “tune ups” to ensure your project continues to look and feel its best.

 

Some of the changes you may notice include:

Settlement Cracks and Nail Pops – You may notice small cracks in the drywall, which often appear in the corners of the room. Cracks may appear within a few months or within a year because of temperature and humidity changes. Nail pops can occur anywhere, but happen most often in ceilings.

 

Small Separations and Paint Lines – With crown molding and painted panel doors, you may observe small separations and paint lines due to changes in the seasons and humidity.

 

Loose Cabinet Doors and Door Knobs – For your cabinet doors and door knobs that get a lot of use, loosening and changes in alignment may occur.

 

Color Changes and Minor Cracking in Grout – New grout in kitchens and bathrooms may change color due to wear and tear. Signs of aging and minor cracking may appear where tile meets another surface (sometimes, the adherence of grout to materials other than tile can be inconsistent).
