So how does the average homeowner know if there are maintenance renovations that require attention? There are a few ways to find out, and sticking your head in the sand is not an option. That would be akin to not going for a regular check-up at the doctor or dentist - if no-one tells you there's a problem, then there is no problem, right? Wrong. The first thing to do is to call upon your gut instinct. You probably have a suspicion if the electrics might be an issue (there's a spark when you plug appliances in, for example), or if there's damp in the basement, or if the attic insulation is insufficient; after all, you're the one who lives there. Take a look around the outside of the house for any signs of worsening damage - are cracks bigger than you remember them? Does the roof look patchy? Do you have an effective water management system - one that drains run-off water away from the house foundations?
Sometimes there is thing that's been needing attention for a long time. Like an interior door that might need a little attention or tweaking. Sometimes builders will trade small adjustment jobs they have the tools and skill for. Say for something like, you cleaning up the area around the house after they strip off the old shingles, stuff like that. Or you might paint or stain the trim on the new windows or doors if they would fix some minor things that needed fixing. Of course this would be labor for labor. Which is still a win-win for you, because it would probably cost a lot more to have a home improvement contractor come in to fix a couple minor things.
As with any investment, the financing option you choose depends on the size of the project and your current financial situation. Financing options can range from dipping into your pocket or savings and paying cash for smaller projects such as painting and wallpapering, to tapping into a line of credit, taking out a line of credit or even refinancing a mortgage for larger renovations that can range from bathroom do-overs to adding additions to existing homes.
