If you think remodeling is as easy as browsing magazines and picking some featured layouts to follow, you may be in for a surprise.
The actual work will require more steps that only professional contractors would know. You might end up coughing up a fortune over what appears to be a simple do-it-yourself Sacramento kitchen makeover.
Here are some more common mistakes that a lot of homeowners make when planning for a remodeling project:
- Not stating the budget. Good contractors should not have any problems tailoring home improvements based on your budget, but it would help them come up with more accurate estimates if you inform them just how much you are willing to spend. Withholding the information from the experts will not keep the costs down and land you a bargain. Often, the quotes might even exceed your expectations.
- Not preparing for the unexpected. Material pricing aside, there are several other instances that might require additional spending: local code violations, structural repairs, order changes. These make preliminary walk-throughs and the availability of contingency funds very important.
- Not researching the contractor’s background. Not all home improvement companies operate the same way. A lot of homeowners fall into the trap of choosing the lowest bidder, only to find out that design, architectural, and permit fees are charged separately, or that kitchen remodels aren’t the contractor’s specialty.
