Plans: They’re worth it!
If you are in the city limits, you will need a building permit. This means that you will need building plans. Be prepared to invest in a good set of plans. They will pay for themselves in the end, and you will get a better result with less stress.

Prepare yourself for meeting with a contractor
Spend time assessing your wants and needs. What is your primary motivation? What are the things that you will not compromise on and what could be eliminated for budget reasons?

Keep an open mind to suggestions from professionals
Sometimes your plans will not be the most efficient way of doing things, and a little input from your contractor can save you a lot of money.

Check references
Always check references for your contractor. For most of us, our home will be the largest investment we will ever make. The decision to hire a contractor should not be taken likely. It affects the value of your home and the quality of your life.

Check lists
Contact Revitalize for a checklist of every decision you will need to make for your renovation; we have lists for all types of projects including bathroom, kitchen, and floor plan alterations.
