One of the main causes of wanting to remodel our home, is because we see it in poor condition or quite deteriorated, suddenly it is out of fashion, or perhaps no longer the home of our dreams. That’s why the main thing is to hire the right people or company to carry out this new reconstruction.
Remember: the cheaper option turns out more expensive!
Sometimes we make the mistake of hiring people who are not trained or specialized in the subject, there could be many reasons; some may be related to savings such as in materials and expenses, this is something we can not allow to happen. It is also very important to have clear accounts of what, how, how much and when we want to do it. This way we can make an effective investment.
That’s why it’s essential to plan when your remodel will be happening before starting out, we must work hard on the budget and plan as much as we can. Taking time out of the budget allows us to have all the price variables to choose the one that best fits our budget and taste. It is also necessary to decide the scope of the reform, since remodeling does not imply throwing away the whole house and building it again. We must also know the condition of our house, which are the spaces that most need remodeling so we can focus our time, energy and money in the correct places.
Planning is essential
Another vital aspect is patience, there are several situations that must be taken into account. The first thing is to plan the use of the space, if the people who live in the house are going to stay or leave the home while the remodeling takes place. So if people are going to stay you must keep in mind if they can tolerate dust, noise, clutter or any of the many things that may happen in the house.
When we plan in advance, we know the amount of time and money we are going to invest, sometimes in that step we may say that since we are already doing this investment why not change the initial plan and we will find out what to do next. This is a serious mistake, because when we are not rational with costs, they can get out of control and we end up with something we don’t want or need, or its just plainly too expensive.
A piece of advice: talk about the subject with others, get to know their experiences, what kind of setbacks they suffered or also to receive advice and practical details that are always a good input for you, but take everything with a grain of salt.
Know first hand in which conditions are light and gas facilities, because when there is a remodeling at home we cannot forget the electrical, water, light and sanitary facilities, this is the opportunity to know in which state they are if they are old and must be changed completely or not.
