The blue print should be approved by the house owner and all the changes should be made at the outset. A contract should be signed between the contractor and the owner to finalise the deal.
Choose the material: The home owner should constantly take part in shopping for the material mentioned in the plan and get the best available goods in the market. This not only gives the house owner liberty to choose the materials that go into the renovation process but also keeps a check on the quality of the products.
Keep a check: House owner must pay regular visits to the site so that he/she knows the progress of the work. The house owner must see whether the construction is progressing as per the agreed time. Before the final payment is made and possession is taken, the house owner should make sure that the construction is done as per the plan. If not, the contractor must repair it as per the plan.
