Some say renovations are one of the most stressful events a family can experience. And while TV shows, blogs and magazines make it seem like a DIY reno is a walk in the park, the reality is usually quite different. After seeing far too many home projects go sideways, we recommend saving yourself the headaches (and money, in the long run), by hiring a professional.
But don’t hire just any contractor. Start by asking friends or family for recommendations of trusted organizations and tradespeople they’ve worked with. You can also refer to testimonials if no one in your network has completed a renovation as of late.
