Giving your home a completely new look is always fun. But before you get to the (fairly) easy stuff, like choosing new paint colors and fixtures, you have to go through a few steps first to ensure the process goes through smoothly.
Know Your End Goal
Why are you renovating your home? Is it to raise the resale value or simply make it better for your family to enjoy for years to come.
Once you’ve figured out the ‘why’ it’s time to break down the ‘worth.’ Research which projects are worth your time and money — this will help organize (and possibly eliminate) your home renovation even further.
Stick To Your Budget
Figure out your budget — and stick to it!
Our biggest tip? Add in a contingency fund for unexpected costs, and expect to use it. Even put some money aside for incidental costs.
Do Your Research
More than likely, someone close to you has undergone one or two home renovations. Ask them about the challenges they faced, and any tips or tricks they have for the process.
Any information you can get will help improve your chances of having a positive experience.
Ask For References
You know you have a good contractor on your hands when the company has no problem showing you references, insurance papers, and plenty of testimonials. For any project, ask for plenty of before and after pictures to get a good idea of their work.
