27 Oct How To Renovate Your House The Right Way
So now you’ve decided to renovate your home, what’s next? Many people aren’t sure how to tackle a home renovation and that is why we have decided to shed more light on this topic. Home renovations are different depending on what the purpose of the renovation is.
If you are renovating so that you can get a higher selling price, it is different from renovating so that you can stay on the property yourself. G B C is the best partner you can have when you’re renovating your house. We have a lot of experience in renovating homes.
Below are a few things you should keep in mind before you start renovating your home.
1. Assess your house
In order to get an objective report on the current state of your home, you need to hire a licensed home inspector. The inspector will check your house from top to bottom and give an accurate report on what needs to be changed and what can stay as is. If you decide to do these checks yourself you may miss out on crucial elements that will need to be changed only to realise them after you’ve spent a lot of money on unnecessary renovations.
The checks that the inspector will perform include a dampness check in the attic, basement leaks, heating, and air conditioning systems checks, roofing and plumbing checks and so much more. You need to evaluate these results before you start deciding which trajectory your renovation will take.
2. Assess your systems
You need to fully assess the systems that you have running in your home. The plumbing system and your electrical wiring are particularly important. You need to decide if these need to be patched up or redone altogether. Remember that having a comfortable environment is extremely important as it affects how much you enjoy being in your home. Having a faulty air conditioning system, for example, promotes the accumulation of mold which is very unhealthy and expensive to remediate.
3. Increase efficiency
Nowadays, efficiency in the home is everything. In general, old appliances are not as efficient or as eco friendly as the newer versions are. Take stock of the appliances that you have in your home and see which ones you may need to replace or upgrade. This is particularly important if you plan to sell your home with a better asking price. Some upgrades will increase the value of your home and energy-efficient appliances will surely catch many buyers’ eyes.
Whatever the case may be when it comes to your home renovation, you need a partner that you can trust. Call G B C today!
