SIGNS IT’S TIME TO RENOVATE
They may seem like niggling issues to start with but they can go on to become big problems — and a sign it’s time to renovate, writes
It may not seem like much: a growing problem with mould, failing plumbing or a kitchen that isn’t functioning well. But Home By Belle renovation company owner Sarah Comerford says issues with the home that start out as small inconveniences might be an indicator that it’s time to take action.
“The main reason people choose to renovate is if something is outdated, so kitchens and bathrooms are usually the first to go,” she says.
While many people are excited about renovating, Sarah says others are forced into it — and they generally are not happy about it. “It might be because there’s some sort of damage — a big one is in bathrooms with leaks,” Sarah says.
“A lot of people who come to us didn’t choose to renovate but have been forced to and it is mainly from some sort of damage.”
