There is certainly nothing wrong with trying to get the biggest bang for your buck. Finding a great deal on renovation supplies and materials is one thing, but purchasing the cheapest products you can find is quite another. Prices vary for building materials for a reason. Typically speaking, higher quality materials with better durability are going to be more expensive. So, you always want to make sure you're buying the right tools and materials for the job or you're going to face problems with your renovation in the future.
However, there is sometimes a far more important home renovation to be considered, and that, unfortunately, falls into definition number one. It is the maintenance renovation, the "restore to a former better state" renovation, the boring renovation - and the ratio of financial cost to "wow" factor absolutely stinks. This type of renovation includes things like a new roof, foundation repairs, pointing, insulation, and wiring - normally renovations you can't see - and are generally the top priority of any home owner, no matter what situation they are in.
The next is to confirm your suspicions. It may be that you don't need to do this if the problem is obvious - for example, if every time it rains you have a bath because the bath fills up from a leak in the ceiling, (a high-high issue in most people's books), a call to a roofer sooner rather than later would be in order. On the other hand, there might be issues which you are unsure of such as visible cracks in the brickwork possibly due to a sinking foundation. This would rate in the medium-high category where the likelihood is unknown but has some supporting evidence (the cracks), and the consequence is financially significant (the house falling down). In a case such as this, or whatever your case might be where you are unsure of the cause of an effect, it's time to consult with others. You may consider talking with family or friends who may have had similar issues, but this tends to leave more doubt as people's natural reaction is to guess and err on the negative side. It is much better to talk to an expert in the field you are concerned with - if it's the roof, talk to a roofer; the brickwork, talk to a stonemason; an electrical issue, an electrician. Go about the process as if you were intending to get have the work done (you may well have to) - get three quotes and therefore three separate opinions, and ask lots of questions. It may turn out that the cracks in the brickwork are merely superficial and become a high-low case, that is, the cracks are definitely there, but will cause no further problems. The low significance cases, regardless of the likelihood, are generally aesthetic and can be resolved at any future time you wish. As for low likelihood cases, they should, in general, not make it to your list.
