Ask questions early and often. Questions are free and all are very important, even if you think they may not be.

What is the primary reason for the renovation? Is it a need based project, form project, or a fashion project decision?

What is your timeframe? Every contractor will ask you this question. Try to be as realistic as possible, and remember holidays.

Do your homework concerning your budget. This is the stage that most homeowners struggle with. They are often taken by surprise when a contractor submits their estimate.

Do you need plans/blueprints? We can help you with this and save money at the same time. If you have a homeowners association, call and ask what they will require before the project starts.

Do you have a vision of what you want? Create a binder from magazine clippings or a vision board of what you like.

Start thinking about how you will be affected by the work being done on your home. If it is a kitchen or bath, understand that you will be without them when the renovation is under way.

Remember to ask questions.
