Thinking of remodeling your house? Although it can be a daunting process, we’re here to make it easier for you with this digital toolkit. We’ve compiled a list of resources to help make your dream home a reality!
- Owens Corning Design EyeQ: You can use this visualization software to digitally create the exterior of your dream home. After uploading a photo of your house, you can adjust the colors and styles of the roofing, masonry, siding, trim and more! After you finish your design, you can even print it out and show your contractor what you want your final product to look like!
- Home Remodel Budget Templates: Remodeling your home can be a pricey investment, but one that is worth it in the long run. Take some time before you begin your project to write out your budget and how much you plan to spend on each section of your home. Don’t forget to budget in the cost for labor and any miscellaneous costs that may arise.
- Government loans and resources: Unknown to many homeowners, the U.S Government actually provides assistance in funding home improvement projects for specific classes of people. Take a couple minutes to see if you qualify!
- Houzz: As a home remodeling and design platform, Houzz is a great source for looking at photos of remodeling projects for inspiration, as well as for finding professionals and materials to furnish your home with.
- Angie’s List: Reviews, reviews, reviews! You should definitely check out reviews of companies in your area before selecting the contractor for the job. You can save yourself so much hassle and grief by doing your due diligence before hiring the contractor.
- Relationship Tips During a Remodel: Although remodeling can be a very exciting time since you’re finally getting closer to seeing your dream home become a reality, arguments over decor, style, and especially money can be a pain point between couples. Take some time before remodeling to talk with your partner about both of your visions for the project, along with a solid budget to avoid major arguments during the remodel.
