What to know before remodeling your home?

Remodeling your home is an exciting journey – one that can greatly increase the resale value of your home, add long overdue touches, and make you feel as though you have moved into a new home altogether without having to go through all the hassles of moving to a new location.  

But before you embark on the remodeling journey, it is critical that you drill down as much as possible into the specifics of what you want to remodel – and do a gut check to ensure that you are prepared from a budget perspective to make the investments you imagine for the home. Remodeling can be a complicated business and working with a trusted team of advisors like Michigan’s Powell Custom Homes can make the process much less daunting, providing you with a team you can ask questions and brainstorm ideas with, drawing from their vast experience (more than three decades of accumulated projects) in managing countless other custom home building and renovation projects.

Whether you are interested in adding a new deck patio to enjoy or need to knock out an unnecessary wall to create more space, experts can help you break down each step of the process into a manageable chunk, along with a clear idea of what the associated costs will be.  

As President Eisenhower famously once said, “In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” On that note,  you should expect that the detailed plan you have created for your home renovation project will likely undergo changes throughout the process; be  prepared for that and work some flexibility into the plan so that you can revise as you go, especially if the budget or project scope are impacted by external forces.

Be prepared to roll with changing conditions, execute on your general plan for your home renovation, and enjoy the process – the joy of home renovation is that you can take even greater pride in enjoying your home when the journey is complete.
