Take a good, long look at the current shape of your home. Before starting on the renovation, determine the need for any repairs or replacements now or that will be needed in the near future. With a clear vision of the current condition, it is easier to plan for the changes. Some of the things to consider are:
Much of the normal wear and tear in a home is a simple fix. Repainting, wallpaper, carpeting are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.
Everything has its own lifespan. Consider the age of your home and its components to decide whether that 10-year-old guttering needs replacement, or shingles are about to go.
Structural damage is a real concern. Every house settles over time and that can cause cracks and gaps. Windows may not work as smoothly as they did. If these problems are allowed to remain, it could affect the integrity of the structure itself, as well as diminishing the effectiveness of its energy effectiveness.
Moisture is one of the most common problems. Cracks at the foundation can cause flooding. Condensation on the windows will start to rot the framing. With moisture comes mold which can affect the health of your family.
Upgrades to electrical, plumbing, and heating systems may be necessary to accommodate the family needs, safety issues, and the overall standard acceptable in today’s world.
Start with your own inspection. Then, have a reputable professional, such as a home inspector, come and do the same. Compare your lists. From that beginning you will be able to discuss reasonable options with your home renovator.
