Planning is a critical component of any renovation or repair project, whether you’re hiring a contractor or tackling it yourself. Begin by assessing the scope of the project, which includes determining the materials needed, setting a budget that incorporates a 10 to 25 percent cushion for unanticipated expenses, and establishing a realistic timeline.
