Home Renovations

Home Renovations are a pretty big deal in the life of a homeowner. Most homeowners will go through at least one major renovation, and typically everyone wants to change something about a house that they either just bought or have lived in for a while.

At Calgary General Contractors we love home renovations and we want to share all of the information that we can to help you. This information isn’t just about the renovation itself, but also about hiring a contractor.


Most home renovations will fall into one of these two categories, it will either be a DIY or you will be looking to hire a contractor to help with parts or all of the renovation.

Our articles and help guides are intended to assist you in a number of different ways.

  1. We want to help you with DIY tips and tricks, so if the renovation isn’t a big job and you want to tackle it yourself, we want to help you with all of the info that you need.
  2. We want to help you decide what things you can do yourself and what things you should definitely get a contractor or professional for. Things like plumbing and electrical are obvious, but there are also other things that you may not be considering that also benefit from professional help.
  3. Our aim is to also help you with the process of finding and hiring a great professional tradesperson, or a general contractor who can help you through the whole process.
