HANNO’S TOP 5 RENOVATION TIPS
1. If you’re doing the renovation yourself, it’s important that you have a good understanding of what’s required at each stage of the process so as to ensure a logical sequence of events and avoid time delays. Bear in mind that you’ll have to complete certain installations (such as flooring) before you can move onto others (like cabinetry). If you overlook a step, it could hold up everything else. 2. Consider installing solid interior doors rather than hollow core doors. They might be more expensive, but they’re much more effective at noise control. 3. Measure carefully and allow for enough space to accommodate elements that need to fit exactly or require precision craftsmanship. Remember to take into account details such as skirting. 4. Employ a good waterproofing contractor. There’s nothing worse than moving into your newly renovated home and finding that you have to stand around with buckets after the first rain.
5. Get all of your contractors involved right from the beginning of your renovation, and make sure that everyone has a clear vision of the interior look and feel you have in mind. This way, all team members will be working towards the same goal, and all the different components of the project will align seamlessly.
