REMODELING AND REFURBISHING
Renovation involves restoring a building to an improved condition. This means replacing and upgrading present components to meet the required standards without altering the original design.
Usually, renovation projects are done to increase the value of buildings on sale and are often shorter with a lower budget compared to other projects. They have little to no effect on the layout and structure of the building.
Before any renovation project, consider the age, condition, and structure of a building. Have an expert look it up and give you a go-ahead. The renovation process involves:
This stage identifies the areas of the building that require renovation. A designer can provide a sketch plan for the renovation.
To plan out the project, identify the renovations you can do yourself and those you can’t, choose the best professional for the job, get the necessary permits from the local authorities.
This involves repairing the structures that might have been damaged or broken in order to restore the building to its tip-top condition. For example, this may involve fixing the light and plumbing fixtures, repairing cracks in the wall, and updating an old ceiling.
