A big concern for many homeowners who embark on a renovation is whether the work will be completed on schedule and on budget. Everyone has heard stories about renovations that went off course, but in reality these represent a very small percentage of all renovations.
The more care you take in preparing for your renovation, the less likely you are to run into problems, according to experienced renovators. Learn about the process beforehand, understand what’s involved and hire the right people for the job. Then any changes to the original timelines and budget will be the result of decisions between you and the renovator during the work – not the result of poor management.
