Remodel Success:
Home Remodeling Done Right, On Time, and On Budget
Monica D. Higgins
• A hands-on homeowner guide to working with design and construction pros on remodeling projects
• Details how to hire the right contractor and avoid construction delays and budget overruns
• Comprehensive strategies for success, from planning to punch list
Most homeowners are uninformed and ill-prepared for big-ticket remodels. The knowledge they do have
often comes from reality-TV home makeover shows that gloss over the ingredients essential to success. This
book by a construction management pro gives homeowners increased confidence in making remodeling
decisions, and peace of mind. Learn the six biggest mistakes peoplemake when building a remodeling dream
team, painless ways to shave the budget, what to do when your contractor isn’t listening, and where to find
financing. In the coming years, home remodeling activity is projected to accelerate, maintaining a growth
rate above its long-term trend, according to Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Use the
guide’s exercises and checklists to help you develop and articulate your remodeling goals, make decisions
that align with your vision, and manage details, relationships, and budget.
