What to do in the First Steps of the Remodeling Process: 3 Tips for a Flawless Project
Posted on November 11th, 2013
Remodeling a home is a huge endeavor to take on. There are many pieces, both big and small that must be put together before you can truly see the big picture: your newly remodeled home. There are three things any homeowner must consider before renovation, whether remodeling services will be used to update a whole residence or a single room. Read on so you too can create a pre-renovation checklist that will make the renovation process easier and head-ache free.
1. Work with a Budget
Creating a detailed budget is the most important to ensure you get all of the details and features covered in the remodeling process. If there is a detail that you absolutely must have but it’s rather expensive, do some shopping around and compare costs. Though during the planning process it may seem that getting more bells and whistles for your money is the way to go, getting cheaper valued components -and lots of them- will actually cause you to lose out in the long run. Costs of labor and services should also be included in your budget- that information comes from your contractor.
- Come up with how much money you can safely spend on your remodeling project
- Make a list of things you need, then make a list of things you want
- Do your research and map out the cost of each need
- Use the rest of your budget to cover the most important “wants.”
2. Look, Feel, and Function
How do you want to use the spaces being remodeled? Will they have a particular function? Do you want them to have a specific feel or decor? These are all important things to consider before you get started with a remodeling project. It is best to have the entire project planned before it even begins.
3. Finding the Best Contractor for the Job
Only the most knowledgeable and experienced contractor should be chosen to complete your home remodeling project. If you’re looking for quality and know-how, you’ve come to the right place.
