Renovating a home can be intimidating for some. That’s why BILD has teamed up with the Toronto Star to bring you a series of helpful tips so you can renovate with confidence.
The feature was printed in the September 26 edition of the Toronto Star, with a digital version available here. The main story helps shine the spotlight on the importance of working with professional contractors when renovating your home.
While it may be tempting to save a few dollars by hiring an underground cash renovator, you are exposing yourself to a great potential risk. These contractors are less likely to pay taxes, have a business licence or carry insurance for their workers, all of which can have disastrous consequences for homeowners if something goes wrong.
The article gives examples on the benefits of hiring professional renovators, as well as some resources on finding them.
If you’re planning a renovation, check out all the great products and services feature at the Toronto Fall Home Show, which runs October 1-4 at the Better Living Centre at Exhibition Place. A highlight at this year’s show is a renovation-specific seminar on condo renovation, which will take place on the main stage on October 3 at 11 a.m.
Tickets are available online at www.fallhomeshow.com and you can save $3 off regular adult admission if you buy online.
