As a homeowner, if you are prepared ahead of time you can make the renovating journey effortless and make working with your contractor a breeze.

Here are five tips to consider when working with a contractor:

  4. Make the contractor responsible for obtaining building permits.
  5. Obtain a written contract from the contractor showing a start and completion date of the project and a detailed list of purchases.

Remodeling a home and working with a contractor takes a lot patience and cooperation, but following the above tips will get you on the path to success.
