Home Renovation Tips

Create a Dedicated Workspace

Having a central area in your home to do the prepping and other work will save you a major headache. You need to make sure you have enough room for tools, supplies and anything else that goes into your renovation.

Keep Expensive Items Away

If you have any expensive items in the home such as Tv’s, furniture, jewellery etc, store them away. Home renovations can become quite a messy affair, and the chance unexpected damage can happen are high. Moving these items to a storage unit temporarily will mitigate this risk.

Clean as You Go
