No one wants to live in half a house with the other half gutted out unless they know it’s going to be worth something in the end
(PRWEB) May 18, 2012
National Home Improvement Month officially kicked off on May 1st, and contractors are hoping that remodeling fever will kick in now that Spring is in full bloom. Homeowners often think a remodeling project is as simple as 1, 2, 3, and while that can be the case, no one can deny the horror stories that come from an ill-planned home renovation. Experienced contractors and remodelers chimed in on “remodeling nightmares” in a recent USA Today article, advising homeowners on how to get through tough remodeling experiences. When the contractor does rip out your master bath wall only to go on vacation, homeowners should have a plan to cover this and also protect themselves against such events. RemodelingCentral.com took the 1,2,3 idea and created a remodeling nightmare prevention guide that shows, step-by-step, how to make a remodeling project work and avoid the pitfalls of those lesser-prepared folks.
“Basically, homeowners are focused on time and money, and to make a remodeling project work, you have to carefully plan for both. This is what the guide helps you do,” said Jeff Giles, owner of First Impression Interactive, which created RemodelingCentral.com and who has experienced the woes of remodeling before.
“No one wants to live in half a house with the other half gutted out unless they know it’s going to be worth something in the end,” added Giles.
With that in mind, developers behind RemodelingCentral.com created a guide, which starts with a substantial planning phase called “Analyze the Numbers,” followed by “View Home Remodeling Ideas.” What does the project look like in the end? How does the design compare to others? How much will materials and labor cost? Can this by a DIY project? The guide aims to answer those questions and with the aid of substantial how-to articles, tips, problem fixes and remodeling tool guides, RemodelingCentral.com fills in the blanks for those seeking to remodel.
Several parts of the guide can be tricky for any novice or advanced home remodeler. How to sketch a plan? Who’s the best contractor? Is financing available? The guide simply directs the remodeler who doesn’t know where to begin, but several pages on RemodelingCentral.com will give homeowners the answers, such as how to sketch plans for a new bathroom or tips to comparing contractors, and even how to arrange financing for home remodeling projects that go beyond a small budget.
The whole point is to get to a finished project that delivers on the dream. Using the guide and information on RemodelingCentral.com, homeowners with a DIY nature or remodeling beginners can develop a plan of action to get things done. RemodelingCentral.com provides all types of project ideas and pictures to aid in any home remodeling project, from major kitchen overhauls to fixing the leaky shower head in your bathroom. Visitors can also contact RemodelingCentral.com staff to ask questions which are answered on the daily updated blog.
