To Build or Renovate

Many Homeowners have the question weather to renovate their place or start from scratch. Here are a couple of factors to consider:

  • Get an estimate – Before you commit to a renovation, getting an estimate can give you a sense of how much you will be spending. This will give you the ability to decide whether it’s worth living in your space or starting from scratch.
  • Find a good contractor – A good contractor will want the estimate to be a joint venture. You’ll collaborate to assign a realistic budget to the work you want done. Make sure you find a contractor who knows the demolishing and renovation costs so they can accurately predict to you how much the trades will charge for upfront work.
  • Incentives – Rebates are offered by the government for home renovations. Incentives can really benefit small-scale upgrades.
  • Eco-friendliness – Think green, there’s nothing greener than working with what you already have. Doing a renovation to upgrade your home using sensible materials is much more eco-friendly than ripping down your home and putting it in a landfill.

5 Tips to Get Your Garage Under Control

Many Homeowners have the question weather to renovate their place or start from scratch. Here are a couple of factors to consider:

  1. Hang up Hooks – Install hooks along the wall to hang everything from shovel and rakes to bicycles and winter sleds. This will declutter your floors and prevent accidents from happening.
  2. Put up Shelves – Shelves are a good way to organize a variety of items, such as tools and cleaning supplies.
  3. Keep Electrical Outlets Clear – This will make it easy for you when you are in need to plug something in.
  4. Create a Map or Reference List – Keep a reference list or map near the door stating which items are in which areas.
  5. Have Storage Bins – Storage bins are great for loose items. With labeling each bin it will be easier for you and the family to find things.
