Crazy to think we’re already a month into 2019! This year has been rolling, and we’re excited for what comes for the rest of the year… including your next big home improvement project. So, how do you decide which project to tackle first? Check out our 4 step write-up and maybe you’ll find some clarification!
1 – Assess
Sit down with your partner and honestly assess your home’s situation. What is the biggest need? Do you need more space, or do you need to beautify existing space? Do you want to build a huge deck extension for having fun this summer, or is your old deck falling apart and needs to be replaced? Once you’ve identified what makes the most sense, it’s time to learn more about the project!
2 – Research
Hop online and do your research! You should be able to find a rough estimate of how much this project will cost, it’s completion time, the ROI you can expect, and most importantly… inspiration! Don’t be afraid to print off some pictures you find of projects you like – as a matter of fact, giving your contractor a visual representation of the look your going for can help big time when generating your quote. Read on!
3 – Gather Quotes
Do you due diligence, and gather multiple quotes – generally at least 3 or 4. Just make sure that the businesses you are dealing with are fully licensed, and check some reviews! Share the information you’ve gathered in steps 1 and 2 with your contractors, and give them time to prepare a proper quote. There will generally be some disparity in pricing and completion time-table. so be sure you get all the facts before making your decision, and get everything in writing!

This is the easiest part! Sit back and relax as your trusted contractor takes care of your home improvement project!
