Whom do you hire?????

I've recently been checking out several websites that are dedicated to remodeling.  One of the questions that seems to pop up pretty frequently is "Do I hire an Architect, Designer, Contractor or my sisters husbands brother, cause he's really handy?"  Everyone of the these professionals has a place in a remodel.  Deciding which one is best for you is about knowing what each of them actually do.

Over the next few blog posts, I will give an overview of each of the above listed folk in more detail in order for you to decide where you want to spend your hard earned money and time.  I'm going to look at pulling permits, getting bids, design ideas, change orders, and what happens when you decide not to pay the looser who put a hole in your garage door by accidently backing into it with his bumper hitch.

With good planning, a homeowner CAN go through an extensive remodel and come out the other side with a full head of hair, money in their wallets, and a marriage that wont require years of therapy in order to stay together.  Stay tuned and I'll share a few tips!

  1. This is great! Can you make sure to talk about what you need to know and understand if you decide not to hire a general contractor? It seems like a great way to save money, but not sure if the headache balances out the cost!
