Planning a Home Renovation Project

As the weather grows steady, you’ll have time to focus on home improvement projects and any changes you would like done to your house and yard. If you are in the planning stages of a renovation project, you may find yourself overwhelmed and unsure of where to begin. Follow these steps to have a successful project and end up with an end result you’ll be proud of!

Decide What You Want Done

The biggest decision you will need to make is choosing what parts of your home you would like to improve and how you want it to look after you’re done. If you are looking to do an expansive redesign, you may want to take it step by step in order to stay within budget and not have to temporarily vacate your home. Take measurements of each room that you plan on remodeling in order to help you decide what you have the space to do. This will give you an idea of what is possible in your home, and what will require additional work. You will also be able to determine what type of professional help you may need, such as a plumber or electrician. Determining the full scope of the project will also help you figure out a timeline.

Come up with a budget

After deciding what you want to be done, crunch the numbers and develop a realistic budget for the project. You will need to take the price of materials, contractors and manual labor into account when determining your budget. Once you have a number, you will need to figure out what it will take to stay within your limit and whether or not you will be able to afford the project.

Contact Contractors for Estimates and Bids

You’ll want professional help for your remodeling project, especially if your plans involve the structural integrity of your home. Contact local contractors for their opinion on your initial design and for bids on your project. Make sure you discuss permits and insurance on these initial talks.
