• Budget well
Make sure you do your homework. Talk to a friend who has been through a similar renovation and do as much window shopping and cost-comparisons that you can do. Make sure that you tack on at least an extra 20% for those inevitable issues that will spring up. And check your budget with your contractor to make sure you’re on track.
• Find the right contractor
The best contractors are mostly gotten through word of mouth. Make sure you get great referrals before you sign any agreements. Also, don’t limit your options talk to about two to three contractors and endeavor to see the projects they have successfully handled in the past.
• Be realistic
Dreaming is the start of any good renovation, but to have a good experience, you have to be realistic about what you can accomplish based on your budget, resources and your existing home.
• Your day-to-day life will be uprooted
The construction team might not work around the clock, but nonetheless, a home renovation is a 24/7 deal. You’ll hear the sounds of hammering and sawing by day. And deal with roped-off rooms and sawdust by night. And you may find yourself locked out of major rooms for days or weeks on end.
• Materials matter
The building materials used during renovation can make or mar the outcome of the home renovation. Make sure you choose materials that support the long-term viability of the home.
