From painting to house renderings, there are a variety of renovation projects that you can take on to improve the overall value of your property.
There are a lot of steps that go on during a renovation project of any kind and it can be easy to make mistakes along the way.
Read on to learn what some of the most common mistakes are so that you can be prepared to make the right decisions and avoid making these same mistakes…
Hiring Contractors Who Are Not Licensed or Specialised in Your Project
It’s normal to want to get right to work on your renovation project, but it should be approached with patience and a willingness to do it right.
The first step in any major renovation project is to find a contractor who is both licensed and specialises in your type of project. You don’t want to hire an individual or company who is not familiar with the tasks you need to have completed. This can lead to sub-par results or even devalue your home if not done correctly.
Not Having Proper Funding
The next major pitfall of any renovation project is not having the correct funding. Always do some research before hiring anyone to take on your project. You will want to know how much money you will be paying in advance instead of needing to take out a loan to get the job completed.
Some companies may offer free quotes depending on your region or the scope of project you want to complete, always ask for the price upfront before work starts.
Not Completing Essential Maintenance Prior to Renovating
If you do not have all of your prior maintenance work completed before your major renovation project, you run the risk of it ruining the results of your renovation later down the track.
Always complete any relevant and crucial maintenance on your home before embarking on any major renovation project.
Expecting Hidden Renovations to Get Noticed
If you are looking to renovate with the intent of increasing the value on your home, there is a wide array of projects to achieve this.
Some projects may or may not provide value to a potential home buyer, however such as a project that they cannot see themselves. Focus on projects that will provide immediate visual results, such as a house rendering that will update the exterior of your home and make it stand out against all other homes on the market.
Not Selecting the Correct House Rendering
If you decide to render the exterior of your home, you must understand what type of home walls you have and decide which type of rendering you want to have done.
Not using the correct tools and substances in your house rendering project can result in unnecessary maintenance work in the future. You may even have to do another home rendering if it’s not done correctly.
At the end of the day, you need to know everything about the project you want to accomplish. Not understanding the scope of your project or any of the above risks can result in a renovation with a quality that is sub-par or may even devalue your home when you try to sell it.
