Your house has good bones, it’s in a neighbourhood that you adore and you plan to stay for many years…this is an ideal scenario to consider a renovation! Although HGTV can make a homeowner renovation seem like a simple project to design, develop and implement the reality is that a renovation is multi-staged and will require knowledge of construction processes, by-laws, permits, codes, product compatibility, installation techniques, budget and contractor management.
A common belief is that a homeowner saves money when they plan and execute a renovation themselves. However, a poorly executed renovation is not only time intensive and frustrating but often results in a more costly end product and a design that doesn’t quite achieve the look or function that was desired. Working with a professional team with accountability, expectations, timelines and budgets will save you time and often money while delivering the function and style that you desire.
