Tips for East York home renovations
East York home renovations are some of our personal favourites at Woodsmith Construction. We have spent many years working in the East York area of Toronto and much like other areas of our great city. There are many homes that are in pretty rough shape. Being located in Lesilieville we are right on the doorstep of this great community. This community has seen an incredible amount of development over the last 15 years. Home prices are now at all time highs and now what you do with that increased equity becomes ever more important.
The home renovation market in most areas of Toronto is booming and East York is no exception. It is the very nature of a boom market that makes it every so more important to make good sound choices with your money. Home renovations are not a small undertaking and they are in no way easy. Be careful of the people that tell you otherwise. The old adage of if it’s sounds too good to be true it probably is. Captures the very core of what most clients find themselves up against. It is easy to make promises in the beginning but try to keep in mind that all renovations take time and require many different things to come together. All of which are in great demand by everyone else trying to do a renovation. A promise of quick and easy will almost certainly lead to problems down the line. Most of which will result in neither of those two promises even being remotely achieved. Always be mindful of the market conditions when preparing for any home renovation project.
There are so many tips I could offer but we unfortunately can only capture a couple this time. The East York home renovations tip, is to choose wisely. Meaning always try and pick your contractor like you would for anything other major investment. Do the homework on the company and talk to people that have recently done work with them and people from the past. Too many times I find clients are too eager to get things going and rush the decision on who to hire, just because they want to get things started. Always talk to as many people as you can that have done what you are planning to do. Find out what went well and what went wrong. Ask those questions to your potential contractor and see how they respond.
