Invest in Home Remodeling Wisely, To Get the Best You Can Afford
Experience teaches us that if we treat everyone with the same levels of compassion and respect, we discover that they have real feelings, needs, and desires. Everyone wants the best of everything! Although there may be more money to invest in a remodeling project, there should always be a budget.
Everyone is special in their own way. It shouldn’t matter whether you have $500,000 or $5,000 to invest in your home. No matter what your remodeling budget is, follow this advice:
» Talk to at least three professionals before making a decision; get information about experience, check references, and trust your “gut feelings”
» Ask questions, and don’t accept pat answers about anything
Detailed Plans Are The GPS To Get You To Your Destination!
Detailed plans were mentioned in a previous blog. Projects that do not include changes to plumbing location, electrical wiring, or framing changes may not need plans for permits. But if you are installing new cabinets, you need to communicate your goals, and you may want to get comparative estimates. Simple detailed plans can definitely help you!
What exactly are detailed plans? How can they make your building or remodeling project better and smoother?
Imagine you’re going to an unfamiliar place, and you’re meeting other people who have never been there, either. How are all of you going to get there? Detailed route instructions! Plans are the GPS that everyone uses as a guide to lead them to the same goal: your satisfaction. Below is a list of everything needed for permits, details that the building-remodeling team needs to assure that what you want to do is possible, within your budget. If you’re a D-I-Yer, this list will help you understand what’s ahead, and possibly change your mind about tackling a major project alone.
