Making sure that the contractor you hire is on the same page as you is one of the most important steps in home renovation. You can have this by opening the lines of communication from the start. Know that sometimes things can take an unexpected turn but that you are interested in keeping up to date with the progress and would like updates even when something goes haywire
Credit cards are a common source of funding for renovation projects because they are easily accessible and the funding is available immediately. For small projects, or minor costs, credit cards may be an appropriate choice but you should be careful to consider your interest rate as many major credit cards come with annual rates in excess of 17%.
Still, you probably want some advance advice about how to budget for your renovation. It is important to consider two main factors that will affect the price tag on your project - soft costs and hard costs. Soft costs include design and budget development, permit fees, and professional fees (i.e. the cost for architecture and interior design). Hard costs are related to the construction phase of your project and will include the cost of labour and materials. In the typical renovation, soft costs account for about 30% of your budget, while hard costs make up the remaining 70%.
