Outdoor Renovation Checklist for Homeowners


Filed under: Garage Door Installation

Tagged with: · ·

A few outdoor renovations can go a long way to upgrade the overall appearance of your home. If you are preparing to work on exterior upgrades or garage renovations, then there are a few things that need to be considered before work commences. Here are a few do’s and don’ts that you should always keep in mind:

  1. Do Check on HOA and Local Regulations: You might need HOA approval or a city permit to complete the work. Check on the HOA guidelines and local government permits that might be required for the project. Don’t start on the work until the paperwork is in place.
  2. Don’t Hire a Contractor without Checking Qualifications: Just because someone says they are qualified to complete the work, doesn’t mean that they are certified and licensed. Asking about the qualification documentation can help you avoid liability and other problems if something goes wrong with the job.
  3. Do Get Multiple Estimates: Even though you are ready to spend money on the renovation project, it doesn’t mean that you need to break the bank with your spending. Invite a few contractors to provide estimates on the projects. Not only can you get a feel for the industry pricing, but you can also evaluate the scope of work included for the job.
  4. Don’t Overlook HOA Rules: When your neighborhood is governed by an HOA, then there are likely rules that need to be followed. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to understand these rules. Then you need to pass this information onto the contractor to avoid pitfalls in the future. For example, an HOA might have rules regarding the hours of the day when work can be done, or the placement of materials and debris during the construction phase.
