The Challenges of New Home Construction.
Recently, we received a call from a new client who was panicked to say the least. For the sake of this article, let’s call him Marc. In the midst of the construction of his new home, Marc had noticed that mistakes from both the general and plumbing contractor were steadily increasing. Here are just a few of the problems:
- Specifications of the bathroom accessories, shower and bathtub weren’t completed properly.
- Kitchen measurements were off.
- An overall unsatisfied and disorganized situation for the new homeowner.
Obviously, there was a lack of communication between the contractor, suppliers, and Marc. This is not an uncommon situation, and can be resolved easily with some attention to detail. It is important to do business with a company you can trust, whether a small renovation job or full construction of your home, you want the project to run smoothly.

Construction and Renovation Planning
Have you ever seen a completed construction plan? If the answer is no, picture this: you are looking at a road map while travelling overseas, and it’s in another language unfamiliar to you. Most likely you’ll end up arriving at your destination, but you’ll take a few wrong turns along the way.
When you entrust the construction or renovation of your home to hired professionals, many people will assume that they fully understand your wants and needs for the project. These assumptions can lead to mistakes, and it is important to ask questions, confirm details, and evaluate each step – especially if several stakeholders are involved. Builders consult construction plans daily, as do renovators, but even with these plans a lack of communication can lead to issues. As an example, we refer to changes in the construction of the project: a support beam that has been moved or the modification of a sink center. The plans and project evolve as they progress, adapting to change along the way.
In the case that was brought to us, changes were made to the bathroom design without the plumbing fixture and supplier being notified. As a result, the bath, shower, toiler, and sinks no longer meet the requirements, causing the whole project to change after the client had already completed the payment. This frustration between the supplier and Marc finally ended up stopping the project completely, have him be refunded, and finding someone else to complete the job: Plomberie Outaouais Plomberium.
