Embarking on a home improvement project is both exciting and stressful.
Don’t let one of these common mistakes spoil the fun…
Don’t rush! Large scale projects take months. Plan accordingly and build in several weeks for curve balls.
Miscommunication. Tensions can run high, so find out the best way to stay in touch with your contractor – email, text, weekly meetings.
Your contractor can then mitigate issues between you and your partner.
Controlling design. There’s a big difference between what you like and what makes the best sense for your home.
Let a designer help decide what works for design and functionality.
Forgetting to budget. Go into the project with a number, then add in another 10 – 20 percent.
