Reality check on home improvments

Home Improvement

THIS IS A VERY SHORT BLOG POST.  (IT'S MORE LIKE A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT...)

 

I am all about home improvements.  I watch all the DYI shows, Chip and Joanna walk on water where I am concerned.  I know GREAT contractors that are GREAT people.  But I just have to say...

it will always take longer and cost more than you thought.

This is not a warning, it's just a fact.  In light of this fact, here are 3 rules

1.  Get 3 bids

2.  Get 3 references

3. It may still cost more and take longer than you thought.
