Revise Remodeling Budget

One of the most common complaints and fears when doing a renovation or home addition is that the project will cost more than you have planned and you will go over your budget.  The best way to either prevent this cost overrun or at least feel better about it by not being surprised is to create an remodeling budget early in your planning process and the keep updating it throughout the project.  By keeping your remodeling budget updated and always using the latest and newest cost estimates and bids you receive from suppliers and contractors you will be confident about how much your remodel will likely cost.
