Secrets to Remodeling Success
Only 1 in 5 homeowners come in under budget. Here’s how to be one of them.
Do It Yourself (DIY) is cheaper, right? Not necessarily, experts say. Depending on the project, amateurs beware. If you don’t have the expertise, you could end up paying between 10% and 40% more.
Why? While your DIY labor is technically free, your lack of know-how can be costly.
And then there’s hiring and scheduling. A task like moving a wall could mean hiring an engineer and an architect, not to mention coordinating permits. A general contractor knows who’ll do the best work for the best price, and they’ll know when to schedule them to avoid wasting dollars on inefficient use of time.
For example if the plumber comes out before you’re ready for him, they’ll charge you for that visit, and then to come out again.
Finally, a contractor is more likely to get it right the first time. There’s nothing like having to buy stuff twice because you messed up. Experts recommends hiring a general contractor for most medium- to large-scale jobs.
Takeaway: Don’t DIY unless you really know what you’re doing. Mistakes cost more than hiring a pro the first time.
#2 Map Out the Project Step by Step (So You Don’t Miss Anything)
When estimating the cost of your project, consider the large expenses, like that tile and adhesive, but also remember the little items like sales tax, delivery charges, shipping charges, the float, caulking, cleaning materials, and more. For bigger projects, you’ll need to estimate engineering costs, interest costs, permit fees, and sewer and water tap fees, says Bennett. The more you can plan to expect, the better.
Takeaway: Don’t forget the “small” costs. Like pennies, they might not seem like much at first, but they sure do add up.
#3 Know Where You’re Willing to Cut Corners — and Where You’re Going to Invest
Before setting a project budget, consider what features are most important to you. When it comes to allocating funds, ancillary desires should take second place to your overall project goals
Takeaway: Let your goals drive your budget decisions.
#5 Pad Your Budget
For any large renovation, you have to plan for the unexpected. For example you could open a wall and find electrical work needs to be done. You could find that your chosen finishes are on back-order and your second choice comes at a higher cost. We suggest a 10% pad into the budget. Some experts suggest more — up to 25% for those with older homes. Cash cushion is used more often than not.
Takeaway: Pad your budget for the unexpected — and don’t rush decisions.”
