A new year is approaching, and that means it’s time to make goals for 2021. While it’s important to make healthy resolutions like losing weight or stop smoking, one thing we often don’t think about is our homes. Just like us, our homes often need to be improved, repaired, or fixed up. Adding a few home improvement resolutions to your list for this year is easy. Getting started is the hard part. That’s why the Boise contractor at Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following tips to reach your home improvement goals this year.
Make A Detailed List
Creating a detailed list of home improvement projects for your home can quickly become longer than you expected. Even though you may not be able to achieve all your goals for this year, write them down! Doing so will help you document what should be done first and what you can do in the future. After you have a better idea of what project deserves the most attention, it will become easier to plan out the rest of your home improvement projects.
Make A Timeline
If there’s one thing we all know, time flies. Once you create a list of prioritized projects, create a realistic timeline of when you can get started for each of them and how long they will last. If you’re not sure of what to anticipate, give the Boise contractor at Pacific Home & Patio a call. We can help you create a realistic timeline while keeping in mind of the seasons and other elements that may hinder or impose on your time frame goals. Organizing projects into phases is extremely helpful when planning things out.
For example, if you decide to install a new roof on your home, you can simultaneously replace all your windows. Completing two projects at once can be very efficient and provide you with more space between home renovations. Lastly, when creating a timeline, be sure to plan for unforeseen circumstances, as we all know after this past year that we never know what life can throw at us.
Make A Budget
The word “budget,” can make some Treasure Valley homeowners cringe. Calculating the numbers can be a daunting task, but it’s critical when it comes to home improvement projects. However, there are a ton of helpful resources to help you factor in costs. One example is the Home Advisor True Cost Guide, which can help you figure out whether a project fits your current budget. Requesting a free estimate from Pacific Home & Patio is another great way to better understand how much things will cost. If a certain project like re-roofing your home isn’t feasible at this time, refer back to your list of potential projects and evaluate which ones you can actually tackle this year.
Plan Your Team
You always want to hire the best people to be on your team. This is especially true when it comes to your biggest investment – your home. Your home improvement projects require trained, licensed, and certified professionals to ensure nothing goes wrong during the process.
