Home Remodeling Myths: Separating Fact From Fiction

If you’re planning to remodel your home, it pays to exercise due diligence so you choose a project that will meaningfully improve not just your home’s appearance and functionality, but also it’s value. Read on as TLS Home Improvement, the home remodeling expert, dispels some of the top misconceptions about home improvement projects that have duped homeowners in recent years:


Myth: Bigger Is Better

Going big on home improvement is tempting, especially if you’ve lived in your home for many years and are yearning for a major makeover. This impulse, however, ignores the most important rules of home improvement: be realistic about your budget, do what works for your family now, and keep your changes in line with local standards.

TLS Home Improvement can help you decide which renovations your home needs right now to help improve its beauty, function, and value. For instance, you can meaningfully improve your home’s comfort and beauty by investing in a basement remodel. Renovating this one area of your home can give you and the whole family a fun space to enjoy quality time and games, and will make your home that much more attractive to potential buyers should you ever decide to sell.

Myth: DIY Is the Way to Go

Most homeowners who choose the DIY route are doing so to save money. While you may save money on upfront labor costs, the untrained homeowner will likely make mistakes that will cost far more to repair down the road.
