CMHC releases home renovation guide

When Canadians are looking to make more room in their homes, one of the simplest, most inexpensive ways is to rent a storage unit so that all unused belongings and furnishings can be cleared out. But occasionally, homeowners may want to consider something more drastic, such as a home renovation project. With these people in mind, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation has released a self-help publication called "Before You Renovate: Renovation Guide."

The guidebook goes through a variety of decisions homeowners often encounter in their home improvement project, such as what the plan process ought to entail and what they should be sure to do before picking up a hammer, drill or lathe.

The guide also details what consumers can do to avoid going over-budget, which is something that often happens due to unplanned expenses.

Canadians who are looking to renovate can review the guide in more detail at CMHC's website. They may also want to visit Jiffy Self-Storage's website, as Jiffy offers inexpensive rates for units needed to house home furnishings while renovation work is being done.
