The media, whether through reality TV shows or DIY magazines, does a great job of making home renovations look easy. But anyone who has lived through dusty bathroom or kitchen renos that extend months beyond the planned end date knows that DIY renovations can quickly turn into a nightmare. If you’re planning an upcoming renovation, unless you’re a seasoned handyman it’s best to save yourself the headache and hire a pro to revamp your home.
Once the decision to hire a contractor is made, you’ll be faced with an even more important one: which contractor to hire. You can start by asking friends, family and acquaintances for referrals. If no one in your network has hired a contractor as of late, consider taking a look at a few testimonials, such as the ones listed here.
