Home renovation and how to reformat it


Home renovation and how to reformat it 

It's important to know what you're getting into when you choose to do a whole home renovation. When you look at the different parts of a major home renovation, you'll understand what it takes and how to plan your projects more effectively.


To begin, make a strategy and a design.


You can start by making a sketch on a cocktail napkin, making full architectural plans, or having a clear idea of how the to remodel should go. Make sure to fix mistakes before the remodel takes shape. This will save you money and make it less frustrating. One of the first things to think about is whether or not you have enough money to pay for your project.


Then make a simple "yes/no" list of things you can do on your own and things you want people to do. See if you can find contractors and subcontractors to do some of the jobs you don't want to do yourself.


Make sure you get permission to do the jobs you want to do by yourself (if necessary). If you hire a contractor, they may take care of getting the permits for you.


Think about the bigger projects.


Roof replacement or repair are two of the biggest projects you might do. You might also have to do some landscaping.

Fixing the foundation and preventing water from getting in

Putting in or fixing windows and siding

Large projects must be done first because they affect the next projects that come after them.


Protect your future renovation work by ensuring the house won't fall on you. That means taking care of the foundation and any structural problems. Secure the foundation and make major foundation repairs to weak walls, joists, and beams.


The next thing to look at is how to keep it dry, which includes the roof, siding, and windows. Repair or change the roof. Replace seriously damaged windows that could put future remodeling work at risk. If the window isn't broken very badly, don't fix or replace it until later in the process.

The same is true for the siding. If the siding is so bad that water can get in, you can either fix or replace it. If it isn't damaged very much, leave it for later.


In this case, we have a demolition plan.


You will demolish and get rid of parts of the house that later projects will replace. This is a big project that many people don't think about until the work starts, and then they start scrambling to make up for a lost time.

For waste, you'll need to rent a big container that you can fill up with trash. Carefully remove all or some of the parts of the house that will be renovated. If you aren't living there, try to get rid of as much as possible.




When removing lead-based paint from a surface, be careful. Asbestos, which is common in older homes, can be dangerous to your health—the best thing to get a professional to help with things like Asbestos or lead-based paint.


Take a Look at Structural Carpentry.


This kind of work is called structural carpentry. It's used to help with other jobs. There are many ways to move walls, build new walls, add beams to support more weight upstairs, punch in new doors (or remove existing doors), add framing for new construction windows, or significantly widen the window openings.

Many of these projects can be done by a willing person to try. Some projects, like widening window openings, might require the help of a contractor.


Make a list of all the jobs that need to be done with heating, electricity, and plumbing.


These important services must be put in when the walls and ceiling are open. Open walls and ceilings make it easier for the heating and air conditioning company to put in ductwork for central heating and air conditioning and for electricians and plumbers to run new electrical and plumbing systems in the house, too.
