The Most Important Questions to Ask When Remodeling Your Home

You made it here… so you’re already on the right track! 

Putting in the necessary research and planning for your home remodel is the first step to a successful home renovation. Here are 3 key questions to ask yourself when beginning the home remodeling process.

1. What scope of work can be accomplished within my budget?

The first step to answering this question is to create a budget and then develop a MUST HAVE list and a WISH list. What areas of your home MUST be updated and what areas of your home do you wish could be updated if your budget allows?

Next, gather multiple inspiration photos to help your contractor gain an understanding of your style.

Finally, sit down with your contractor to share your budget, your must haves and wish list as well as inspiration photos to determine if your must have list and wish list can be accomplished within your budget. From this, you can create a scope of work to begin to work off of.

WARNING: Giving yourself a healthy margin for any unanticipated expenses that could come up. The most important thing here is to partner with a builder you trust who has a lot of home building and remodeling experience.

2. How long should my home renovation take?

The answer to this question will depend largely on the scope of work for your home remodel.

How many spaces are you planning on renovating?

How decisive are you in choosing the materials for your remodel?

And while there are other factors to take into consideration, like weather delays and/or the availability of materials, choosing a contractor with experience in the industry and a strong plan and ability to communicate, will help you through the undesirable moment that can arise throughout the process.

3. What selections do I need to be making now?

You’ve nailed down your project scope, timeline and budget, so the next step will be to make selections on the following:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Trim
  • Appliances
  • Flooring
