RENOVATION TIP: This is one part of the DIY renovation process that I would recommend hiring somebody to it for you (floor polishing &carpets).
Consider heat recovery ventilation systems in cooler climates (see Sealing your home). The length of your renovation depends upon things like the size of the project, any changes to the original scope of work as requested by the client, weather (if exterior work is being done), the team’s schedule etc.
A renovation cannot just be considered as just that; value and quality of the materials used also becomes a considering factor. As you can see, there are many tradespeople that will eventually be involved in your renovation, so it is always advisable to work with a renovation contractor who takes responsibility for hiring and managing these workers.
