Remodeling a kitchen requires a lot of effort (and cash too). Therefore, making sure that it gets done the first time is going to be really important for you. The last thing you want is someone cleaning up a mess because your kitchen wasn’t remodeled properly. Here are some of the common mistakes homeowners make that you should try to avoid.
1. Underestimating Your Budget
Don’t be surprised when unexpected expenses pop up during a renovation. You may find yourself trying to cut corners when in reality you are making the situation even worse. An expert tip we like to inform our clients is to add at least 15% to their budget so that they are prepared for anything that may come their way.
2. Doing it Yourself
Unless you’re a professional, some things should be left untouched. Master’s Touch has experienced many occasions where homeowners are looking to save some money by handling projects by themselves. Unfortunately, without experience or knowledge, they run into complicated issues which makes things more problematic for contractors which cost homeowners more than they first anticipated.
3. Hiring a Cheap Contractor
Before signing any paperwork from a home improvement contractor, you want to double check you have verified the contractor’s license and insurance, make sure the written estimate includes all the details, e.g., measurements and cost of cabinets, hardware, flooring, and install costs, not just “new room”.
4. Buying Cheap Materials
Along with hiring a cheap contractor is buying cheap materials online or through brochures that have a promotion deal. Keep in mind; the contractor will be the ones who will be installing them. They have the years of experience installing all types of materials and can help determine which products will fit your needs.
5. Not Hiring Us
