Contractors are still popular for home refurbishment projects!
Want to make a few changes in your home? Well, when it comes to home improvement, it is important to understand the costs and expenses in advance. Thanks to Infographic donation from the builders west London branch of New line Construction Ltd., a few amazing trends have emerged. According to the info, it is now known that around 80% of all homeowners used their savings to fund such projects.
What’s even more interesting is the fact that contractors are still popular among homeowners. Around 41% of all people preferred to hire a contractor for their projects, while 25% did part of the job and hire professional companies for the rest. Also, people, around 46%, were mostly on target with regards to the budget. In fact, people who relied on savings were mostly within their budget, while others who used credit for home refurbishment did spend over the budget.
One thing is for sure – contractors are still relevant in this industry, mainly because they work in a fixed price and have very professional services to offer. Instead of trial and error, homeowners preferred them for better results. It is also interesting that most people invested in home improvement with a goal of selling the property, while 42% were more interested in general repairs and maintenance.
