Just flipping through the channels, you can see all kinds of home improvement television shows that make home remodeling so easy. With a sledge hammer at the beginning, a small construction montage through the middle and a big reveal at the end, it’s no wonder that the reality of home remodeling comes as quite a shock. In fact, even with a great contractor, home remodeling can be a stressful time. But there are a few things you can do to ensure a happy ending during your home remodel!
First, find a solid contractor with interior design experience. When you find a good contractor you can trust, you’ll feel much better about the entire process. Reputable contractors can give you accurate estimates on work, complete it in a timely fashion, and communicate openly.
Second, make sure that your budget has a discretionary fund. A rainy-day fund keeps your budget from spiraling out of control during your home remodeling project. Instead of wondering where you’ll get money to move pipes or take out asbestos, your emergency fund can kick in.
Third, make as many decisions as possible before starting home remodeling process. Many homeowners are shocked once they realize just how many decisions they’ll have to make in even the simplest remodel. Make your decisions beforehand or, if you trust your contractor and they have design experience, let them narrow down the choices for you.
