Home Improvements



1. Home improvements will typically add value to a house.

True
Home improvements can dramatically add value to a house. Homeowners can increase the value of a house by remodeling existing rooms or adding on to the current plan. It is necessary to determine if the project is an idea that would be attractive to future buyers. Projects like adding extra bathrooms, bedrooms, and closets can often add value to a house which can be very helpful in the future if the owners decide to sell. Outside projects like garages and tool sheds can also be useful.


2. Finding home contractors is an important step in remodeling.

True
Locating quality home contractors is a huge task. There are a small number of people who have the talent to do large projects by themselves. Unless the individual has the knowledge and experience, it is important to find a reliable contractor to successfully satisfy the needs of the family.


3. Proper planning is crucial for successful home improvements.

True
Successful home improvements begin with planning. Before starting a project, careful evaluation of needs and resources will be necessary. It is also important to visualize the end result of the project before beginning. This will allow any problems to be worked out in the early stages of development so they will not have to be remedied later on into the project.


4. It is best to always choose the lowest bidding home contractors.

False
It is wise to get written estimates from several different home contractors. Seeking advice from friends, family and neighbors that have had work done is also wise. Depending on the type of project or required work, there are choices as to what type of contractor to choose. Individuals may choose a general or specialty contractor, an architect, a designer or a design/build contractor.


5. The success of any project begins by entrusting it to God.

True
Psalm 127:1 - Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
