Remodeling Your Home

Paige Hemmis and Jeanette Pavini team up to discuss what to look out for when remodeling your home. First things first, make sure you have the funds for a remodel. Especially because a remodel can take almost a year! But smaller areas will take up to three months. Both women say don’t pay cash for a remodeling job and set up payment schedules and get everything in writing. Do not pay 100% until you are satisfied with the job.
