    When it comes time to renovate your home, you certainly know some of the best tricks for saving money.


For example, you know that doing as much as you can on your own can save major money on contractor charges, and you know that choosing a renovation with the most return value will serve your bank account the best over the years. However, these four smaller tips can also help you greatly as you start your DIY home renovation.

Rent Your Tools

Another great way to save money as you seek to do most of your DIY tasks yourself is to find ways to rent your tools and equipment rather than purchasing them. Some tools you may only need for a few days to a week and may never have another reason to need them again for the rest of your life. Renting rather than investing in them yourself can be a very smart way to save money.

Shop at Reuse Centers

Shopping at a reuse center for such renovation supplies as cabinets, flooring and even furniture can shave thousands off your project. Some items at these stores are salvaged materials that are in perfectly good condition.

Other items are simply leftover items from other people’s projects or items that individuals changed their minds on after purchasing them.  Someone’s leftover tile for an entire house may be enough for the bathroom project you need it for.


Invest in a Truck

Owning your own truck can make many of your renovation tasks that much simpler. When you need to haul lumber, tiles, flooring, cabinets or other items from your local home improvement center, your truck can allow you to load up and transport your supplies easily. Plus, a truck is equally important for disposing of old or unwanted materials.

It may make more financial sense to contact a Chevy truck dealer than to rent a truck for the duration of the project.  If you are worried that a truck may not fit your lifestyle after your home improvement project, you can always sell it and get back a majority of the money that you have put into it.

Budget for Unexpected Expenses

Almost any renovation will come with unexpected expenses. For example, you may suddenly discover that you need to rewire something, add heating or cooling or want a different design. A good suggestion is to add a minimum of 10 percent on to your estimated renovation budget to cover changes and unexpected expenses.

Whether you are looking for ways to save money or for ways to make your DIY renovation project easier for your family to get through, these four tips are great places for you to start. These simple suggestions show you how to make use of supplies and services that are most likely readily available in your town. By making your DIY renovation workable for you, you will more easily be able to enjoy the finished product.
