Whether you’re a little bit handy or a talented Do-It-Yourselfer, it can be tempting to take on a remodeling project yourself to save money. However, there are a lot of moving parts in even a basic remodeling project, so there are several things for you to think about before taking on the task yourself.
Remodeling projects can range from simple to complex, small to large. Each project is unique because of the home itself as well as the project scope, types of products being used and quality and price of the materials.
Getting a fair price from a remodeler for your project is important. But what if the price you get seems almost too good to be true? A remodeling industry expert once observed that “remodeling horror stories often start with a great price.” Why is that?
At Melton, we strive to fulfill all of our clients’ wishes within the budget they give us for their remodel. However, we want to be sure our clients to get exactly what they’re dreaming of in their remodeled home, and sometimes that means supplementing their budget with some financing so they don’t end up having regrets about their choices later.
For a design/build or any remodeling professional to help you the most, it is important that you and they know and understand the priority order of what is most important to you. You should also determine what your priorities are for selecting a remodeling professional.
