Expert Advice On Renovation Do’s And Don’ts: What Should I Know?

As home renovation and repair experts, we know this industry’s ins and outs and renovation do’s and don’ts. As a layperson, you may not. That’s why you should choose to work with us for your Nashville home renovation! 

Avoid the pitfalls and tragedies of poorly done home renovation projects by following our expert advice. 

What Are Some Non-Negotiables In Home Renovation?

Here is a short list of some definite “do’s” when it comes to your Nashville home renovation project:

  • DO work with an experienced, licensed contractor like Ascension General Contractors. 
  • DO pay attention to reviews! Your friends and neighbors are a great resource for hiring contractors, too. Personal experience trumps a fancy social media campaign every time.
  • DO have a definite idea of what you want the end result to be. Once construction begins, it can be next to impossible to make changes – and very expensive.
  • DO set a budget – and be realistic. As you shop for paint, furniture, fixtures, etc., you can get distracted by what’s out there and spend more than you should. 
  • DO prepare!

What Are Some Big “Don’ts” For My Home Renovation Project?

Here are some helpful tips on what not to do:

  • DON’T underestimate the process. It will be longer than you think, messier than you want, and more frustrating than anticipated. 
  • DON’T settle for the least-expensive general contractor. Remember the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” That’s certainly true here.
  • DON’T get too trendy. Fashions and styles change all the time – buying the latest sweater or shoe is easy, but changing your house is a big deal. Go classic!
  • DON’T focus primarily on appearance. Remember, you have to live with the outcome for years to come. Make sure your plan fits your lifestyle and family!
