Most home renovation shows you see on TV depict more of an expectation versus the reality. They show remodeling projects as no-hassle, fun-filled endeavors that are completed on time and under budget. But in the real world, home renovations are usually not that simple. They require careful research and planning to ensure the process runs smoothly.
So, how do you know where to start? Cue our comprehensive renovation guide that breaks it all down with easy-to-follow steps. Whether you're a seasoned home improvement veteran or tackling a renovation for the first time, there's something in this guide for you. Let's break down some of the highlights.
Step 1 of a renovation is setting a realistic budget. Although we live in a digital world, don't overlook the power of a good old-fashioned binder to plan your budget. This three-ring binder will be your go-to resource where you can store your final project timeline and budget.
You've finalized your renovation timeline and budget, and now it's time to plan how you'll get the most bang for your buck. Choose building materials that are long-lasting, making them more cost-effective than cheaper materials you'll have to replace just down the road. Products like LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding are engineered to withstand strong winds and hail impact while resisting damage from high humidity, termites, fungal decay and freeze/thaw cycles.
Beyond the highlights above, you’ll find a wealth of information on how to work harmoniously with your remodeler. For more information on how LP® SmartSide® products can help make your renovation a success, visit LPSmartSide.com, call 888-820-0325 or find a remodeler near you.
When you're re-siding your home, it's important to consider how your design choices will impact your home's resale value. While the material you choose can make a difference, the color of your home is a great way to add value and catch a buyer's eye.
