Gut rehab is the most extreme scenario of remodeling or renovating a property or a home in Chicago, without actually demolishing the exterior walls and rebuilding from scratch. Gut rehab starts with taring everything on the inside out – at times down to the studs or the frame. Gut Rehab in Chicago does not however, refer to interior work alone. Many times rehabbing of a house involves severe exterior changes or alterations. Generally once most of the interior of the house is cleaned up and exposed – the gut rehab remodeling contractor is able to inspect insulation, structure and any utilities which usually are not readily available. This is the perfect time to repair, replace or alter in any way – the electrical service, plumbing, sewer or duct work/ventilation service. At any other time such alterations typically mean a part of the house where the work is being performed is being partially torn up and additional repairs are necessary following the initial repairs.
