Dean Sharp Gives Us His Guide To A Successful Remodel

Getting ready to do a home remodel?

Don't forget the work before the work!

What?  Exactly.

The biggest and most common remodeling mistakes occur long before the work begins.

We rush.

We don’t ask the right questions.

  • What do I want?
  • Why do I want it?

We ask the wrong questions.

  • What materials should I use?
  • How much will it cost?

We get into the weeds too soon.

  • Stay “big picture” as much as possible.

We don’t get enough advice.

  • We’re all a certain degree of “house blind” when it comes to our own place.

We get advice from the wrong people.

  • Specialists give specialist advice.
  • Vested interests give vested interest advice.

Are we renovating or remodeling?

  • Renovate - to restore to good condition; make new or as if new again; repair; to reinvigorate; refresh; revive.
  • Remodel - to alter a form or structure; change; reconstruct.
