Things to Inspect Before Renovating Your Home

A house or an apartment faces the wrath of periodically changing weather conditions. In the long run, these affect the strength and quality of the construction material used. This is even truer when you live in an old house that was built long ago.

These are just a few reasons to renovate a home. Depending on an individual homeowner, the reasons may vary. Here, we will specifically talk about renovation of a house, which becomes necessary for the overall health and well-being of the house and its residents.

Before you decide the time and the budget to renovate your house, a thorough inspection of the all the areas inside and outside the house or apartment is a must.

Here’s a checklist to follow so that you don’t miss out on anything important.

  • Seepage of waste water or rain water
  • Signs of dampness in the kitchen sink/cabinets
  • Fungal growth in damp areas
  • Cracks in the walls
  • Leaky pipes in the kitchen/bathroom
  • Insect infestation
  • Balcony renovations
  •  Broken tiles
  •  Chipped edges
  • Waterproofing of the terrace
  • Peeling paint from the plastered walls
  • Faulty plumbing like leaky faucet, water tank overflow
  • Safety locks/doors
Another important point to consider when renovating the house is the electrical wirings, switch boards and power backup installation. In case you want to change the existing wiring or install new switch boards after renovations, your electrician will have to study the area to give you proper installation.

Last but not the least, as the rainy season is gradually approaching, it is advisable to inspect your home for the above mentioned flaws and get them rectified.

It is a task that might attract some extra cost as the process of renovation goes ahead.

We would also recommend you consult a professional architect, an experienced contractor, mason, electrician and plumber before you set out on the job.
