Best practices for picking up a half-done site from old developer?

Owner has removed the old developer (too slow, delays), and hired me. It’s a few pages done with WPBakery and a woocommerce shop. Need to redo the homepage and finish shop.

Still many missing elements, etc. I will do a WPvivid backup, remove most plugins, install Elementor.

What other things should I do? I really want to reset the whole site, start from scratch, but also don’t want to lose the woocommerce shop setup…

Is it recommended I backup just woocomerce, reset whole site and load back on the woocommerce portion?
