Ready to communicate effectively with your contractor? Sometimes terminology can get in the way of efficiently communicating your expectations to your contractor. Here are a few simple terms to remember.
- Remodeling - this is a general term that is typically used incorrectly to categorize a broad list of projects. Remodeling, actually, refers to changing the character of a house or portion of a house. For example, if you incorporate your dining room with your kitchen to create a bigger kitchen it would be considered a "remodeling project."
- Restoring - Restoring a house or room is making a house look as it did before. For example, if you wanted to make your colonial home in Annapolis look like it once did, it would be considered a "restoration."
- Renovating - A term that refers to making something old new. In other words, renovate means to update. For example, the conversation of a basement with old dingy carpeting and old appliances to a rec-room with hardwood floors and new appliances would be considered renovating.
