When buying a home for resale or renovating your forever home, there are three undeniable truths that every professional remodeler will attest to; these three tips will help you make sure your home improvement project is successful no matter the size and scope:
Make a detailed plan — Starting with a fully realized plan will keep your project from going off the rails once work is underway. Plan for as many variables as you can imagine and keep a trusted construction professional in your contacts just in case you run into an issue that calls for a skilled journeyman.
Don’t skimp on materials — Cutting corners is never a good idea unless you are literally cutting the corners from a sheet of plywood with a jigsaw. Bargain hunting is one thing, but make sure to pay close attention to the quality of the materials you choose. You will get what you pay for so make sure to stay informed, do all you research and spend wisely.
Measure twice… — Detailed planning will be for nothing if you are hasty and rushed with your primary construction work. The old adage, “measure twice, cut once” is as true for you and your project as it is for experienced professional carpenters and remodelers.
