If you are looking to renovate or add on to your home, one of the most important things you can do is to create a home renovation budget. In a market like Perth, quality parts or labour aren’t cheap. Here are five great tips to help you do it right the first time.
You need to know how much each step is going to cost. There are obvious costs such as labour and materials, but there are also other costs, such as permits, taxes, demolition, rubbish removal, disposal of any hazardous materials such as asbestos and site clean up. Try to break it down into every step along the way.

You will need to lean on your suppliers and tradies to know how much various steps are going to cost. Professionals who do this for a living know more than you do. Take advantage of their knowledge.
Add a Buffer
As the old saying goes, “what can go wrong will go wrong.” We hope it doesn’t, but always have 10-15% of the total cost available as a buffer just in case.
Track Your Spending
Whether it’s a basic spreadsheet or a dedicated computer program, track every dollar you spend. At all times, you should know where you are in relation to your estimated costs.
