While money really shouldn’t be a barrier in your remodeling project, if you’re using it you might want to cut back so you can afford things that aren’t absolutely necessary. One way to increase your savings is to take on your remodeling project yourself with the help of a hired contractor. Where you live, your skill level, and your time available all have a price tag that a contractor must charge and that you may be able to come in under. Always get bids from multiple sources before picking a project though. That way you know you’re getting a bottom dollar price. Before you start your project what can you afford to spend on materials and supplies? Most projects can easily go over what you can afford. More than likely you don’t have the money for a blown job in the middle of the night or a outrageous custom job for a dining room or bathroom that you just need to get started. Take into account the start-up cost of materials and tools and plan for materials and supplies so they are the lowest amount you have to spend. You may not have the necessary tools for demolition or moving vents or pipes. Better to hire than to have to go back and buy the tools needed for a project already started in the first place. When a budget is tight and you’re able to afford only a few of the projects your remodel requires, determine which projects are going to take priority. Identify what projects should be near the top of your budget and which are not so important. This is your first line of defense to saving money in the project. Next do your research on tools that you’re going to need. Do each project require a different type of tool or maybe you’re going to need a different tool for your project. Make sure you have the tools to get any job done and that you’re organized without buying tools you don’t have. Make a shopping list of tools needed as well as the make and model of your tool. Just because you’re out of money for a few weeks or a couple of months, doesn’t mean that you have to forgo a remodeling finish. If you’re an accomplished remodeler you’re certainly not going to wait to finish a project just because money is a little tight. Sometimes when money tight projects are finished out of the money you didn’t spend, then the money you spent is too much. Waterproofing now just to wait until you can afford it again is so not good. When you’re budgeting, decide what you want to do and for how much. If you have a very strict budget, trim certain techniques and materials and materials; if you have a larger budget then you can do any desired project. Always add 10 per cent to your budget to be safe. Decide the actual cost of your project before you start. Remember, a good remodeling contractor knows more about a project than you’d possibly know. Check around with friends and family for recommendations on who is reputable and reliable. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and ask them as many questions as you need. The project is too important to just give up. Find out about the project and the contractors the you have talking with.
