Home Renovation is simply the best! You are improving the property value of your house while making major changes to your home and everything associated with it is awesome. However…improper management of funds as well as hiring unscrupulous contractors are two of the major perils associated with home renovations.
Depending on what part of the house you are renovating (Kitchens and Bathroom’s are the priciest), your budget will vary. While you want the marbles flooring and quartz counter top, is it truly in your budget? It can be! This article will mention some of the most important tips when it comes to managing your renovation budget. We work with several home improvement contractors across our service area and these our tips for you:
1) Choose Quality and Experience
One of the biggest mistakes home owner’s make is to cut corners during their home renovation. They opt to go with the in-experienced young student who is on his fifth home renovation project over someone who has been doing it his life. Granted the Student offered to do it for 80% of the price. However, the risks outweigh the benefits. Choosing an inexperienced contractor can lead to disastrous and nightmare situations. He might not have the experience, he might use up all the money you gave him without completing the job, he might not complete the job at all or worse….he takes twice or three times the time to finish a simple renovation.
Choose Quality and Experience. Even if it is 20% more, the finish of the job will be impeccable. Professionals will collect their deposits on time and finish the work accordingly. They have seen all forms of scenarios and are more than familiar stabilizing a site when the unexpected happens.
2) Disposal Bin Rentals
Similar to hiring a contractor, hiring a professional waste management company is imperative for the success of your project. Choosing to go with a smaller company will end of costing you more due to their inefficient way to dispose of waste. Be Sure to choose a company like Dump-Squad that is licensed and insured with a great reputation in the industry. We offer flexible pricing to all over clients (Fixed Price or Variable) and will handle all your waste like professionals.
We have experienced drivers and customer reps who have seen every form of situation and will be more than happy to alleviate your burden.
3) Material Cost
The Last thing you can save money on Material. More than likely your contractor will provide you with an exceptional price but be sure to also get a quote if you were to provide the materials. It never hurts to ask and sometimes can even save you thousands of dollars!
