Here are a few tips to help you plan the renovation of your house:

 

1.  Make a schedule

 

Start the process by making a proper schedule. As multiple people will be working on different things at the same time around the house, keeping track of costs might get difficult. Make an orderly list of the things you need to get done and segregate the project into smaller plans to make things more manageable for you. For example, start with the kitchen plan, go on to the bathroom plan and so on.

 

2. Check for rot and dampness

 

Rot is a fungus that destroys timber and shows up in areas that aren’t very well ventilated, such as under floorboards and attics. Water marks on the walls and flooring is a sign of dampness. It’s typically caused by leakage in pipes or clogged gutters. Both damp and rot are fairly expensive to repair, hence you should keep them in check.

 

3.  Take a look at the roof

 

Check out your roof and see if any tiles or flashings are missing or need replacing. If there is extensive damage, you might need to replace the entire roof. Make sure you keep this in mind for your safety.

 

4. Consider remodelling the basement

 

One of the highlights of custom home renovations is basement refurbishing. You can install shelves, remodel the stairs, and create a home theatre space, basement bar, wine cellar or anything of your choice. There are various options available today, you can choose what suits your home the best. A few things you should keep in mind before planning the renovation is the height of the basement, building codes and drainage.

 

5.  Get a blueprint of the plan

 

The primary things required to plan a renovation are blueprints, estimates and design plans. Start with making an all-inclusive plan with specific details about the kind of work that needs to be done, the products that will be used and the designs that have been shortlisted, on paper. Getting professional renovators to do this for you will be the best plan of action.
