Anyone who has planned a renovation project knows that there are many, often difficult, decisions to make along the way.

He provides expert advice in all aspects of planning and completing the most common renovation projects so homeowners will

  • learn the basics: structural considerations, permits and potential challenges
  • hire right: finding the right people for the job
  • choose the right materials: comprehensive guide to flooring, cabinets, etc., to help you make the best choices (which aren’t necessarily the most expensive ones)
  • understand cost and timelines: getting and understanding estimates and how long it’s going to take
  • oversee the job properly: how to ensure the renovation is done right, including step-by-step photographs of correct installation

Packed with colour photographs, illustrations and sidebars, these two new Make It Right™ books will help ensure homeowners avoid costly mistakes and get their renovation right the first time.
