FAQ: What Are Some Common Remodeling Myths?
We know. Remodeling your home can be a scary thing. From picking your project to choosing a timeframe to partnering with the right contractor, sometimes the whole process can seem overwhelming. Not to mention, there are countless myths floating around that can make you feel a bit uneasy, and like you'd rather stay trapped in the 1990's aesthetic of your house than dare to remodel it.
But there's no need to panic. In fact, many of those myths you hear while researching your project are just plain false, including:
Myth #1 - Remodeling is expensive.
Truth - While, yes, some types of remodeling may make you dip into your savings, renovating your home doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. In fact, remodeling allows you to pick and choose projects, and subsequently, your budget. Plus, what many don't realize is that remodeling your home is an investment. When you have a home that is in top shape and up to date, your property value will increase significantly, helping your bottom dollar when you choose to sell.
Myth #2 - DIY projects are just as successful as professionally done ones.
Truth - True, some simple projects like switching hardware or painting a wall may be easy to do yourself, but major renovations should be handled by a professional. A contractor will be able to not only give you a finished product that is beautiful and will last, but they will also be there to advise you along every step of the process – which is an invaluable addition to any home.
Myth #3 - Contractors are unreliable.
Truth - This stereotype is dangerous to the remodeling process, and honestly, is just false. While you do want to make sure to do your research ahead of time, teaming up with a reputable contractor that belongs to trusted associations like NARI, such as Total Home KC, will take your home project to the next level.
