Renovating your home isn’t a task that homeowners can easily do. There are many factors you’ll have to consider such as the costs and which contractor you’ll hire to get the job done. One of the main dilemmas you’ll likely face with your plans is where to start; do you start with the roof replacement or the siding? Or do you repair the foundations first? Thankfully, there is a way to make things somewhat easier on you.
In this post, Certified Home Improvement, LLC gives you a step-by-step guide that you can follow for your home renovation.
The first thing you should always do before actually starting your home renovation is to design your plans for the remodel. This should include how you want it to progress and the contractor you plan to hire as well. That way, you can minimize or avoid any costly mistakes before the renovation even takes physical form.
The next step is the roof repair or replacement. Out of all the exterior work you can get done for your home during the renovation, the roof should be the priority. This is because repairing or replacing your roof is a large project and should always be done first to avoid any negative impacts on the subsequent projects. Your home will also have a better line of defense from the elements as the renovation takes place.
Once the roof is fixed or replaced, focus on your foundation next, especially if it was damaged through the years. Otherwise, your home may face significant structural damage from beneath if it isn’t repaired on time.
Structural carpentry is done to support the other parts of your home such as drywall, new walls, windows and doors. The process often includes moving or constructing the new walls, adding more support beams, adding more insulation and enlarging the door and window openings. Once you’ve done that, you can now add your new windows and doors. On the other hand, vital services such as the HVAC and plumbing should be installed by professionals while the walls and ceiling are still opened.
Of all the exterior work you can do for your home, always leave the siding for last unless getting it done first is necessary. This is because the doors and windows may get punched out and your new siding can be damaged.
When it comes to your home’s interior, on the other hand, make sure to install the new flooring as late as possible to prevent the surface from sustaining a significant amount of damage.
