With the new year just around the corner, now is the time to start planning any home renovation projects that you’ve had in mind or did not get to do this year. Planning is key and the more time you have to plan the better off you will be during the spring and summer. Here is some great advice that you should take into consideration when planning and executing your home renovation project.
Make a Wish List: Start listing out all of the projects that you would like completed for the year so that you can have a complete visual representation of the projects ahead as well as which projects take more priority than others.
Budgeting: Before meeting with a contractor, have a general idea of how much money you would like to invest in your home for the home restoration projects. Be very clear and upfront with your contractor about how much money you are willing to spend.
Timeline: Understand when during the year is an appropriate time to begin the renovation project. If you would like to have a specific project completed before a certain time, then prioritize that project ahead of others.
Contractors: Not all contractors are created equal. Do some research on contractors in the area and ask people who you know who’ve had prior experience with contractors working on their home. Do not be afraid to go through an interviewing process with the contractors.
