The Remodeling Process

Are you thinking of remodeling?

Remodeling your home can be one of the most exciting yet stressful times of your life. You can make the process more smooth and stress-free by working with a contractor who understands your needs and wants and works and communicates well with you. Where do you find such a mythical beast?

Where to begin: developing an idea

Before you even meet with a contractor, you should develop an idea of what it is you wish to do in your home. Do you want to update your kitchen? Add a powder room? Or is it an entirely new addition that has you combing the pages of home magazines for ideas? Think about your needs AND your wants and make a list of them in order of importance to you. Think about how you want to use the remodeled space. Do you have a clear budget in mind? If you do, make sure you know what it is when you talk to a contractor. The contractor can help you brainstorm ideas and tell you if your budget meets your dreams.
