You may have thought about starting by talking to an architect, but you may want to consider that the language of the architect is all about creativity, not costs. Likewise, the language of the trades is entirely about practical installation and does not consider design.
The Renovation Architect/Specialist balances the homeowner's requirements of aesthetics and construction cost and communicates this to the designers, engineers, builders and sub trades. This balancing has to go on from the initial concept and feasibility stage, through the detailed design and costing and finally throughout the construction phase. Design, cost and quality decisions are constantly being made and traded off.
A Renovation Specialist will make sure the homeowners get what they want with the best design while meeting the agreed budget.

Re-Siding & Repainting

Re-Siding & Repainting

As any real estate expert will tell you, first impressions count. A tired exterior significantly lowers the value of a house, even though the interior and location might be very appealing. That's why many home owners choose to re-side (re-clad) or repaint their home to modernize and add value.  There are some other benefits to re-siding. While the siding is off, you have the opportunity to address other aspects of a renovation (such as insulation, wiring, plumbing etc.) in a much more cost-effective way. In fact, the savings you make on these upgrades can go a long way towards covering the cost of re-siding.

Warm Up Your Home

Warm Up Your Home

If your home doesn't have good insulation you're probably spending more than you should to keep your home warm (and those power bills only seem to get bigger). So it's not surprising that more house-owners are looking for better insulations and efficient home heating systems. Not only does it create a warmer, healthier home to live in; it also reduces your ongoing energy costs, and adds value for re-sale.
