Home renovation checklist

Renovating your home can be a time consuming project. Dealing with constructors, sorting out your finances and running the project can prove tough work when having to fit it all around your normal routine. Here are a few tips to help you get started:


Know your needs and plan your ideas beforehand. This will speed up the process and make it a happier experience for both you and your contractor.


Create a list of your preferences and discuss with your contractor to ensure both of you understand what is expected. The more detail the better. Sketch drawings always work well.


It is important to make sure you have a suitable budget for a high quality architect along with the products you would like your contractor to use. Don’t forget about costs for installation and miscellaneous expense such as meals out or accommodation if you have to move out for a while. Control your spending.

Ask questions

Don’t feel embarrassed to ask your contractors for information on their warranty or business licence, they will be more than happy to do so. It is also important to ask questions about the build to ensure you are abiding by the law and regulations. 


Usually, projects run over the estimate price. A good plan is to set aside around 10-15 per cent more than you expect the renovation to cost to ensure you are prepared for the extra costs.
