A home improvement job this summer isn’t an easy project to start and it isn’t cheap either so you should really think long and hard before starting one. There are several parts to be considered: siding, roof, gutters, windows, etc. and prioritizing the most damaged should always be the first step. To make sure that you are successful, you should hire an honest contractor because some practice cost-cutting and overestimating. You don’t want to wake up one day and find out that your home improvement or remodeling costs have already reached sky high, right? Take this renovation project, as reported by federalwaymirror.com:
Earlier discussions of the project noted an initial budget of approximately $140,000. The Council then approved moving forward on the project during the April 1 meeting, setting the total cost for the project at a level “not to exceed $200,000.”
Councilwoman Kelly Maloney asked during the May 20 meeting why it seemed the costs had shot up so quickly in such a short time. Ken Miller, interim parks director, said a number of factors contributed to the near doubling of the original budget to the one that was approved at the May 20 meeting.
