Things you have to take into account when renovating

Renovating your home is an exciting, challenging yet rewarding process that will no doubt improve both the quality of the building itself and boost the enjoyment and pride that you can take away from your home, whether it be the renovation of a property that you already owned and want to rejuvenate it or whether you bought a house in a state of disrepair with plans to restore it to its former glory to either enjoy the next chapter of your life in it or to rent or sell it on to make a profit on your investment, it’s a process that requires careful budgeting, planning and time to spend in sourcing the right contractors and specialists to help you turn the slightly disheveled home into a palace again.

There will be much work to take into account that needs working out, for a start you will have to have the building inspected by an experienced homebuilder or contractor in order to assess the property and identify what could be done in terms of renovation, then you will need to arrange for an engineer or architect to come and plan out exactly how to turn your ambitious project into a reality. However with the enormous amount of work ahead of you it will pay to make sure you do things in a methodical and calculated way to avoid confusion and time lost. So we’ve compiled a list of jobs that often get put to the wayside in order to quickly and efficiently complete the work on time.

The garden

Now when the building work is being done, it’s no doubt that for the duration of the works the property is going to look as though some kind of bomb has landed on top of it, as plaster, wood and other items are ripped from the house in order to replace it or even as dramatic as part of the home requiring a demolition in order to proceed (which causes a significant amount of headaches and mess in itself) the home may not look improved for a long time. Add on top of that all of the equipment, machinery and supplies that will be used to construct the new property will need to be stored somewhere, and you can’t exactly store a 3 tine digger in the cupboard under the stairs can you?

So most of the time the bulk of the supplies and large equipment will be stored outside in your garden to keep it off of  public property and causing an obstruction to the public. And more often than not your garden will take quite a beating as things are left there for extended periods of time and workmen and vehicles carve their way over your lawn and other parts of the garden. SO make sure that while you have all of this equipment here that the last thing that they do is in some way help you prepare your garden for your future plans, such as leveling the ground, building up some raised beds or even digging a starting hole for a swimming pool which brings us around nicely to our second suggestion.

Pool plans

If you live in Australia for long enough you will notice that a lot of people have nicely decorated, designed and installed pools which not only adds to the salability and look of a home in general, it also offers hard working Aussies a chance to cool off after a day on the job and who doesn’t like the sound of that? So this is something that you should definitely look into getting squared away if you are planning to sell the home or move in straight away. As you may as well get everything finished and finalized before you need to arrange the home and gardens appearance and decoration.

For the most part, a decent pool renovation contractor will be able to guide you through any stage of the process, from digging the pool to resurfacing it. The resurfacing in particular should have close attention paid to it due to the effect that it will have on both the look of the entire garden and is actually one of the more creative and fun aspects of having your pool installed.
