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.
Cutting down your home renovation costs doesn't mean you have to compromise with the quality of work. As you are preparing for renovating your home, make sure you keep a watch on the local store sales and flyers. Many times, companies come out with discounted prices for their over stocked products. However, buy only those products that you need and don't get swayed away by the heavy discounts. Moreover, you can also talk to your friends and relatives, who might have huge stocks of renovation products lying at their place. They might be willing to sell off their extra stuff at reduced prices. Some might even donate the items to you willingly free of cost.
Home renovation is an exciting project for many homeowners who want to go with the flow of the times and keep their abodes updated with new styles when it comes to architecture and interior design. However, although it may spark the interest of many, the home renovation costs that come with it are not so appealing especially to those considered as "average-earning" homeowners - and this is largely the reason why most people forgo renovating their houses until enough money is saved.
