Exterior remodeling — whether out of a need to repair damages or the want to improve your home — is a pretty big undertaking. And just like every big undertaking, determining what your purpose and goals are first is just as crucial as implementing them.
So before you get started, ask yourself this: why do I want to renovate my house?
The answer may not be as cut and dry as you expect, but identifying it can help in breaking down your goals into clear and actionable steps that are key to the success of your remodeling project.
