Home makeover tip. Skill level.

HOME MAKEOVER SKILLS – what skills are you or your family able to use in the makeover? When do you need to call-in the professionals?

• Analyse your own skills carefully and balance this with the time you would realistically be able to give to the project

• Consider skilled tradesmen if budget allows, as this ensures the project will reach completion!

If the home makeover is for selling purposes…

  • Poor workmanship can devalue a property, so don’t cut corners
  • A guarantee or receipt from a professional tradesman can be shown to the potential buyers as proof that the house has been well-maintained

Here are some examples:
