How to Avoid Home Renovation Nightmares

If it hasn’t happened to you, it has undoubtedly occurred with someone you know – a home renovation that went down hill fast, taking with it far more time and money than anticipated. All you have to do is look online and its easy to find a multitude of home repair and renovation nightmares.

Take, for instance, a Florida man who paid a substantial amount of money to have hurricane impact windows installed. When a tropical storm hit soon afterwards, the windows did their job – with the exception of just one small leak. Within just a short time, though, mushrooms began growing out of the wall and into the living room.

While he was able to have the mushrooms removed and the wall replaced (which cost him another 4-figures), it was discovered that the contractor did not obtain a permit to install the new windows. A “simple” mistake that ended up costing far more money, time, and aggravation to the customer.

It is likely that no “victim” plans for these types of disasters. So, how can you better ensure that the same thing doesn’t happen with your long-awaited home makeover project?

There are actually some things you can do – starting with choosing a reputable contractor to both design and perform the work you want done. It is also recommended that you review any testimonials from past or current customers, as well as information from highly-respected agencies like the Better Business Bureau.

The first step in any home renovation project should be to discuss your objectives with a specialist in the field. That way, you will be able to take a look at various options, as well as the difference in cost.
