Know What You’re Paying For

When you buy something at a store, you get the hands-on experience of seeing its size and how it looks, feels and works. You leave the store knowing what you’ve bought.

When you agree to pay for renovation work, though, it’s up to you, your architect and your contractor to agree on what will be built.

This can be difficult because the “product” you’re talking about is something doesn’t even exist yet. Prepare yourself and put your mind at ease by having a solid understanding of:

✔️ Contract
✔️ Insurance
✔️ Scope of Work
✔️ Duration of Work
✔️ Exclusions
✔️ Payment Schedule
