Renovating your property is an exciting and laborious process. But there are many ways things can go wrong along the way. So never make these 3 home renovation mistakes!
1-. Going with the first contractor you find or Going with the lowest estimate you get.
One of the biggest home renovation mistakes homeowners make is not properly vetting their remodeling team. If you are planning a major remodeling of your home, you must make sure you have a reliable team, that is why it is always good to ask for their project portfolio and check their website and social networks.
Sometimes it is very tempting to go for the cheapest estimate, but is it always best to go for that option? You must make sure that the work done on your property is of quality and that it will last for a long time.
2-. Ignore lighting
Good lighting is always important for a house to look good! A specialist can help you design a lighting plan to intelligently position and size your lighting schemes. This will create a well-lit, inviting, and usable environment. Remember also to use natural light, that will give an open space aspect to your home.
3-. Working without a permit
When starting any kind of renovation on your property you want to make sure there are no problems down the line, which is why it's always good to check with your county or local municipal building department to determine if a permit is needed for your specific project. Unauthorized projects are often torn down. If you ever sell your home, the resale value or the sale itself may be affected. At Elevation Construction Team, we make sure we get the necessary permits for all of your projects.
