Home Inspectors blog on home repairs and home improvements
The following costs are intended as ballpark estimates for repairs and/or improvements to a typical three bedroom home. Our experience has shown that actual contractor quotations can vary by as much as 300%. Naturally, the quality of workmanship and materials will influence costs. The complexity of the job, accessibility and even economic conditions can also alter actual costs.
Undertaking a Home Repair or Home Improvement
Let's start by differentiating between a home improvement and a home repair. A home improvement, as the name implies, means improving something. It is usually a renovation to create more space, change the layout of the house, improve energy efficiency, or to make aesthetic changes. This report will deal with the simpler topic of home repair--basically replacing things that are worn out or fixing things that are broken. Here are some very basic rules to follow. Some of theses rules can also be applied when undertaking a Home Improvement.
Summary We trust that the above information will help people in their dealings with contractors, realign expectations, and perhaps avoid pitfalls.
