Is Now The Right Time?
It’s an important consideration. Each family needs to decide whether they are ready to make the sacrifice for a renovation now. It’s not easy to have a crew of people working on your home. It’s noisy and messy, and your sleep is disrupted. One of the considerations that goes along with it is whether the contractor will finish on time. No one wants to have to deal with a mess for a month.
How Does One Choose A Contractor?
Choosing a contractor that is professional is crucial. It is easy to find contractors who can talk a great talk, but will they follow through? We suggest that you look for experience first. Ask to see before and after pictures and also ask for references. You want to go and see the homes of other people who have worked with this contractor to make sure they do quality work.
Look For Reputation
Reputation is also key. If a contractor or company has done a great job over time, and built a great reputation along with it, you can be pretty sure that they are going to want to keep that reputation going with you, as well. Contrast this with a new contractor without many clients or customer feedback online. You are basically throwing dice at a casino. You may have a great experience, but you may not. Do you really want to take this chance?
What Do I Remodel First?
We suggest that you look at what would make you happiest, combined with what is most practical and needed for your family. Is your family expanding? Do you need an addition? Or, do you need a new kitchen because you want to start having more dinner parties?
Will The Value Increase Be Worth It?
It’s important to wonder if your renovation will really add the appropriate value to your home to be worth it. The question is can you get the value back upon selling your home. It’s not an easy question, but part of it is whether your home is in the right area that has other homes that are selling at your price point.
