CON­TRAC­TOR TIPS

Ottawa Business Journal - Ottawa at Home - - HOME DESIGNER AT HOME -

Let­ting your builder or ren­o­va­tor know what your bud­get is, helps set lim­its and guide­lines. “I won’t send you to a cus­tom kitchen com­pany when IKEA or Home De­pot would be more suit­able,” ex­plains Rob. “Ninety-five per­cent of jobs go over bud­get. This is rarely due to con­trac­tor er­ror (that is, if you have hired a rep­utable qual­ity con­trac­tor). Own­ers have to be dis­ci­plined when it comes to plan­ning their ren­o­va­tion and be­ing re­al­is­tic about what they can af­ford.”
