How Not to Renovate Your Kitchen

One of our salespeople had been saving for a home renovation. Then he hired his best friend to complete the job.

I don't have to tell you the rest.

You probably know someone who has had renovation problems.

But whereas that problem seems obvious, how about the one in this picture?


Look above the stove.

It will be a big problem.

You are probably having issues deciding between the products and brands.

On the one hand, every brand, blogger, and influencer loves everything.

On the other hand, every consumer hates everything

While opinions vary, you can have problems with a renovation in so many ways.

Building and remodeling are now more complicated than I've seen during my 37 years at Yale.

So, we wrote a new guide: The Book of Bad Renovations.

It covers every problem you could encounter, such as bad contractors, kitchen designs, products, trends, and services.

The Book is 72 pages long, containing things not to do.

You can download it for free.

I don't want to see you lose money and time or experience the frustration and anger associated with a renovation problem.

Download the guide, and it won't happen to you.

Get The Book of Bad Renovations to learn how to avoid a renovation failure. Well over 1 million people have read and trusted a Yale Guide.
