We remodeled our house in Seattle a couple of years ago. It was quite a large job which included replacing the roof, furnace, windows, doors, floors, and adding a new kitchen and bathroom. In all we needed 8 specialist contractors to do the work and we needed it done quickly. While early summer is not the best time to request bids as it’s a busy time in the lives of contractors, I was amazed by some of these businesses lack of communication and marketing strategies.
Channeling my frustration into some lessons learned, here are 4 of my takeaways from an experience that EVENTUALLY has helped us renovate a home we love living in.
