Ready to Renovate?

Everyone's heard a horror story about a home renovation gone wrong.

Consider these tips to ensure your renovation project is completed successfully:

  • Get referrals from your friends and the contractors you're considering.
  • Use established contractors with a physical location (address), who have been in business for many years under the same name.
  • Do a legal check to ensure contractors are licensed by your province and insured in case of injury during the project.
  • Ask for and carefully review a copy of the contractors insurance policy ensuring they have adequate liability insurance.
  • Depending on the nature of the work, and especially if it is a major project, have your name added as an additional insured to their insurance policy.
  • Contact us for advice and whether the renovations will require an adjustment to your home policy.
