ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - With summer right around the corner, it’s a perfect time to start planning home repairs, according to experts.

Northwest Bank Branch leader Joe Larkin sat down with 23 News to give his take on planning for home repairs on a budget.

Joe Larkin says that you should find out what your goals are and avoid putting projects on credit. Larkin also says to have a bigger goal even if the renovation is going well and more time to save money and making budget adjustments.

Larkin recommends estimating home renovation costs, consider home remodeling loan options, get home renovation quotes from contractors and stick to the home remodeling plan because it will help reduce costs.

The final tip is to set money aside for surprises.
