  • Opening Intro -

    If you're renovating a new home or an investment property, it's likely that your head is swimming in every component that needs to be completed.

    Sometimes it can feel overwhelming, to say the least.


Here are our top five home renovation hacks that will help to save you some valuable repair time during your next renovation project.

Do Rent Tools

One of the biggest mistakes that do-it-yourselfers make is not using the appropriate tools for the job. Rather, they try to use the existing tools that they have to complete the job, just rent them. While a nail and hammer can put in the baseboard, it’s not going to have a high-quality finish and it’s going to take a lot of time.

Instead, rent some professional equipment from your local hardware store. You may be surprised at just how cheap different pieces of equipment can be to rent. They’ll save you a ton of time as compared to using your own inferior tools to do the job.

Know When to Hire Out

There are just some jobs that it’s more effective to hire out to get completed. For example,ceiling insulation removal is a real pain to do by yourself. Not only do you have to work with the skin irritating material, you’ll have to find a way to get rid of it. When it comes to this size of a project, it’s just best to pay a professional to come in and do it. They’ll get it done in much less time and free up your own time to commit to completing another home renovation project.

Consider Vinyl Planks Over Redoing Hardwood

While restoring the original look of the interior components of a home can really help to improve the value of a home, they’re not always time effective to do.

For example, hardwood floors take a lot of work to redo. You’ve got to prep the surface, do sanding with a professional machine, and then apply your finish. Rather than go through all that work, consider installing vinyl plank flooring. It can provide a similar finished look in a lot less time.

Plan Plan and Plan Some More

Before you undertake any home renovation project, you should have every single step planned out. This will help you to identify what steps will need to go before others. For example, if you’re installing a half bath, you’ll need to consider the electrical and plumbing first. Then, things like drywall, tub and sink installation, and so forth come afterwards. If you don’t plan out your approach ahead of time, you may find yourself wasting time backtracking to redo jobs that were out of order.
