At Gateway Kitchen & Bath, our experience with home renovations has given us the opportunity to share with you some of the best ways you can prepare for your own. From cost to goals, we work with you through the steps to see that your project turns out exactly as you are expecting. We recommend considering these important steps before you begin your home renovation journey with us.
- Budget – Consider your budget carefully. Home renovations can be done on an endless budget or a more frugal budget, but it is important to know your limits. Once you know what you can afford, it is easier for your contractor to give you options in the appropriate price ranges.
- Find a Contractor – Finding a reliable and trustworthy contractor is an important step. You may have to talk to many contractors before you find one that you feel comfortable working with. At Gateway Kitchen & Bath, we can recommend the contractors who will give you open communication and be up-front about their pricing.
- Know Your Must-Haves – An exciting step in the home renovation process is to complete a must-haves list. If you are considering home renovations, you likely have certain goals in mind. Write down which renovation projects are especially important to you and discuss them with your potential contractors. If you have an idea, but not a clear vision for a specific request, do a little research or talk to family and friends about things you like about their home.
- Be Willing to Negotiate – Although your contractor will do all that he/she can to meet your must-haves, it is important for you to be ready to compromise. If you can’t compromise on some of the details of your home renovations, you may have to wait until your budget meets the expectations of your remodel.
