The top 3 renovating mistakes you need to avoid

Deciding to renovate your home is a big decision. And a large renovation is a serious project—one that you don’t want to go awry. And yet we read all the time about renovation disasters where everything went wrong.

Here’s our top 3 things to remember, so that your renovation project does what it’s supposed to do...add value and comfort to your home:

1. Stay true to your home’s style 

Whether it’s a Spanish villa or a traditional log home, it’s important that any improvements you make stay true to the style of your home—otherwise, chances are your additions will look out of place.


2. Stay in the neighborhood’s value range

Homeowners often make the mistake of over renovating. If your home is in a $200,000 neighborhood, and you put a $200,000 dollar addition to it, you’ll end up with a $400,000 home in a $200,000 neighborhood. Unfortunately, the neighbourhood value always trumps the individual home’s value.


3. Hire the right contractor

It can be a thin line between the renovation of your dreams and a bomb site. And the common denominator is usually the renovator. For a quality project, you need to hire quality help—it really is as simple as that.
