Take the case where the home-owner is happy in their home and they want to stay there to raise a family - they love the community spirit of the neighbourhood, it's close to work, and there are ample facilities nearby. What is more important long-term? Stopping the basement from leaking, or getting a new kitchen? The answer should be obvious of course - renovating (restoring to a former better state) the basement is not only a necessary preventative measure from potentially significant damage to the house, but is also a requirement for peace of mind.

Many homeowners want to modernize or update the look of their homes for their own comfort and enjoyment. Some, rightly, view their home as an investment and want to increase the resale value of their home should they decide to sell. In today's environmentally-conscious times, many homeowners are now undertaking home renovations to increase the energy efficiency of a house. Their investment in home renovations converts into a smaller "carbon-footprint" and long-term savings in energy consumption and costs. Whatever the reason, homeowners planning home renovations should consider both their costs and their financing options before beginning their project.

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.

Having a good understanding of the factors that may affect the renovation costs will help a homeowner in planning the whole renovation process so it will fit hisher budget. The size of the house that needs to be renovated should be taken into consideration. The bigger the house, the higher the costs. On the other hand, there are instances wherein not the whole house but only parts of it (perhaps the kitchen or the living room) are the only ones that need the renovation. In either case, whether the whole house must have the makeover or just a particular room, the size or the area (usually in square footage) that needs the work must be taken into consideration in calculating the cost.

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.

If you are the handyman type simple renovations can easily be done on your own and can save your contractor fees. If you are going to hire out a residential contractor make sure to look at examples of their previous work. Ask for references and check out their website. The detail put into their work, references and website will give you a good idea of their work and work ethic. It is also important to make sure your gut tells you that the contractor you have chosen is right for you and your home renovation.

Do the plumbing of the house just need to be replaced or relocated? Do the rooms just need to be readjusted or do whole new rooms need to be made? Usually, the scale of the project is referred in two terms. Small projects or minor fixes are called as "midrange projects" while big fixes are called as "upscale projects". Without a doubt, upscale projects really cost more. The choice of materials also greatly affects the total cost of the home renovation. Definitely, high-quality materials or fixtures cost more.

Whether you are pursuing small, inexpensive renovation projects or you have considerable savings behind you, you may want to consider funding your project from your personal resources. However, you should still speak to a financial advisor to ensure you have appropriate funding, especially if you are inexperienced with home renovation projects.

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%.
