Where to you start with a Redesign Project?

IMG_1439 55208 Big Spring_HR_030.It’s so exciting! You are going to update, refresh or redesign your home. But wait! Before you hand over a hammer or money to just anyone there are a few things you need to get in order.

Know EXACTLY what you want.

That sounds pretty elementary, but if you don’t know exactly what you want, you may end up with something the contractor likes or wants only to find out that is exactly what you DIDN’T want.

Don’t run with the lowest bid.

If you are looking at remodeling or redesigning from just the $$$$, you may end up with exactly what you are paying for. I know it can get expensive, but spending the money on quality work as well as materials will save you huge headaches in the long run. Best thing to do is to gather three bids from reputable contractors and then ask the questions to determine who is the best fit for you and your redesign project.

Get it in writing!

S*P*E*L*L out your project in extreme detail and include time limits. Also, include verbiage which includes what happens if there is a defect in the material or workmanship. Be sure to include a payment schedule to what is paid at what point. Don’t pay all upfront – delegate a certain amount of money to be paid at different stages of the redesign, leaving the majority of payment after the work is completed.
