There are many reasons to renovate your home. It could be to make more space or it could be just to make a space more comfortable. It could be for convenience or it could be for aesthetics. It could be as big as a full basement or as small as a kitchen backsplash. Safer, easier to maintain, more energy-efficient and more attractive are all good reasons to renovate, with the added bonus of probably increasing the market value of your home.

Whether it is big or small there are steps you can take to ensure the job is done well. The most obvious is to choose the right contractor.
Your contractor should:

  • provide you with a detailed, written quote
  • have a high standard of workmanship
  • respect your property by maintaining a safe and organized work site
  • give references and will follow up, if necessary after the job is complete.
  • should be licenced and carry liability insurance

But above all you need to have a contractor who you feel is trustworthy and a good 'fit' for the job. You want someone who will answer your questions and ensure a professional level of knowledge and experience from start to finish.

Any sort of renovation, large or small, takes time to plan. There are hundreds of decisions to make: colour, size, material, trim,, wood or MDF, chrome or brushed nickel.. The lists go on so be prepared to take some time for the planning process. Other things you can do to make the project a success:

  • dream big with ideas but be realistic about budget
  • have photos or magazine pictures of things you like
  • ask questions and listen to answers

Working together we can make your dream renovation come true.
