  • References, reviews, or testimonials from actual people
  • Certified, insured, and registered workers
  • A detailed and thorough contract

Preparing for a home renovation can take a lot mentally and financially. You need to be prepared to have workers in and out of your home for potentially a number of weeks, depending on the kind of renovation. As well as be able to deal with the noise and other disruptions, but most of all, you need to be prepared for the loss of use of that space until the renovation is complete. Your home renovation contractor will be able to advise and guide you through the complete renovation process more thoroughly.
