Home renovation projects take time, energy, and money. And they often cost more than what you originally planned for.
To ensure that your home renovation is completed on time and in a smooth manner, you need to establish a timeline and define your maximum budget. You could potentially hire someone else to plan it for you, but being involved in the project will make it far more likely that you’ll achieve your renovation goals.
While not every home renovation project pans out in the same manner, you might want to follow some basic guidelines to avoid unnecessary work and long hours.
Devise A Plan
Assessing and prioritizing what you need to renovate and repair will help you devise a basic plan. You need to assess where you need to start, the time you can allot to each aspect of the project, and the money you’ll need to set aside.
You also need to figure out where your family will be living during the renovation project, as this will add to your expenses.
Determine A Budget
Your finances are by far the most important factor when it comes to project completion. You need to come up with a number that you’re comfortable spending.
Remember, the costs are likely to exceed your estimates. Hence, to cushion the burden, you should always plan for 10 to 20% more than the final number—but try not to cross it.
Hire A Contractor
Select a construction contractor who’s an expert in the construction industry and popular for their reliable services. For your renovation project, you need a contractor who shares your vision; someone who can handle the scope of the work within your timeline.
Secure Permits And Order Your Renovation Materials
Permits are required to carry out any renovation projects. Ensure that your contractor and property managers have checked out the municipality’s regulations and inspection rules beforehand.
After you have your permit issues sorted out, you’ll need a few basic items to get the renovation project started. These include drywall, lumber, new doors, and windows.
