No matter how hard you plan, obstacles do come up and you need to be able to know how to handle them properly. Hiring professional contractors and vendors with excellent references, knowing your type of home and the benefits and pitfalls of it to help you through the steps and details is paramount to staying within budget and within timelines. Choosing the wrong home improvements OR the wrong contractor can be like throwing money away, as well as your sanity if you don’t do your research and hire right!
