Building a patio to enjoy your outdoor area is also a great way to add value to your home. However, before you begin any home renovation project it is important to have a clear plan of what you can afford. A great place to start is by contacting patio builders to get quotes on designs and materials, so that you can understand what is available and help you plan for a stress-free installation.
Save, save, save
Once you have decided that you want to build a patio, this is the time to start saving for the renovation. Putting away money before you begin will mean more money to build the patio you want and help you gauge what you can afford without having to worry about meeting your living expenses.
Planning is the key to any home renovation. Draw a simple plan, make a list of what you want and get a number of quotes from professional patio builders. This will help you determine what you can afford and will help you decide what aspects of your patio are essential, such as a roof, and what elements you can wait a bit longer for, such as a spa pool.
Have a safety net
Another important budgeting tip is to build in an additional five per cent to the amount you budget for your renovation. This will mean any unforeseen problems, such as weather delays, won’t cause you to go without daily essentials. Also, sticking to your budgeting plan is important because any changes during the building phase can add extra costs and time.
