For those of you who missed it, the topic was “Renovations and Strategies to Maximize Your Townhouse Value.”
Zachary Kaplan, President of ZMK Group, spoke about how to assemble a team and organize any renovation, from small projects to large jobs. He emphasized getting your building permits and Landmarks approval before beginning a job, and gave sample pricing for various jobs — from relining a chimney to digging down a cellar.
Zach also spoke about doing construction projects in stages. In one example, the owners were planning on adding an additional floor but decided they would rather budget for it in the future. So midway through renovations, ZMK and the architect put stairs, a bulkhead, and plumbing lines up to the future roof addition. That way, when the owners decided to do construction on the roof later on, the workers would be able to simply go upstairs without disrupting the rest of the house, and the construction materials could be elevated up the exterior.
