Some people live for it, some people dread it. Fixing up your home comes with a mixed bag of emotions. We’ve worked in the home building/renovation industry for many years, and we want to give you a few tips on how to make the process a lot more cost efficient and less of a burden on you.
Out first tip is to do your research.
While your uncle may have refered you the BEST contractor ever, it’s important to show them that you know a thing or two before they make all the important decisions about your home. Building (pun intended) a relationship with you contractor is one of the best ways to save time and money when renovating your home. Chances are they have the experience necessary to give you what you didn’t even know you needed in terms of your build!
We also think it’s important to never underestimate your costs.
Of course its important to be frugal. However, when you decided to upgrade your home, you knew what you were getting into. Again, do the research! Talk to multiple building crews and ask the right questions when getting an estimate. If you don’t understand something, ASK. Knowing the right contractors and people will help you get a fair estimate, but be prepared to do what it takes to get the job done right the first time.
Finally, we want to push you to don’t quit until the project is finished.
If you’re trying to do these renovations on your own, this is more of a problem. Make SURE you allow yourself the time it takes to get the job done. Create a calander, work outline, or finishing goal to help push you to do the work! If you’re working with a crew, make sure you communicate your needs in terms of finishing dates, and try and be there as they complete each step.
