Remodeling - 10 Step Quick Start Checklist
With the current struggling housing market, many potential home-sellers are remodeling their homes either to encourage a sale or to keep. Before you bring out the hammer and nails for a little sprucing up, here are a few dos and don'ts regarding remodeling.
Do hire a contractor
Thumb through the yellow pages and make some calls. Weigh your options, and see if the contractor has any professional references they can give you. Do not be afraid to ask about the quality of work. If they have a website, go to it. See if there are any testimonials from satisfied clients. If a contractor tries to withhold this information, don't bother with them. They probably aren't telling you their positive feedback for a reason: they don't have any.
Don't do the job yourself
One of the biggest misfires people make when it comes to remodeling is planning on doing it themselves. Contractors have the skills and training to complete any remodeling job quickly and efficiently. Remodeling professionals are also more cost efficient in that they can provide the tools, labor, and required materials at a more reasonable charge. While you may think that picking up a few how-to books and making a trip to Home Depot will help you in your efforts to remodel your home, think realistically. Unless you have been professionally trained to do the work, leave the hard labor to the experts.
Do be conscious of your environment
Thinking of investing in a pool when you live in Alaska? While the novelty is there, don't overshoot your limitations. Be realistic about what you want to remodel. Think of what will give your house realistic market value improvement, or just remodel what you genuinely believe needs a little fixing up.
Don't be too creative
If you're remodeling your home with the intention to sell it, don't go overboard with improvements that only appease you as the owner. Thinking of remodeling your bathroom to look like an Amazon jungle, complete with waterfall? Think about what a potential home buyer would say who isn't a fan of warmer climates. One of the biggest mistakes people make when remodeling for home sale is not taking a buyer's feelings into consideration. You want to use a universal outline for home remodeling. While you shouldn't feel you have to keep things overwhelmingly conservative, don't let your improvements deter potential home buyers.
Remodelling - Partitions From Doors
The attic in ones home is generally considered to be a dusty and unusable space, except for storing junk in perhaps. But with a slight bit of attic remodelling it is quite possible to transform this vacant space into a very desirable room.
We will often find ourselves running out of living space in the home and not having an idea as to how to go about creating extra space in a cost effective manner. So as with many other questions, the answer is simple, look upward and ask.
Now while your attention is concentrated upward, open your eyes and you may just be surprised at what you see. Above you there very well may be the answer to your question concerning where will you find space?
The attic is a perfectly inhabitable space in the home once you have made a few minor changes. It all depends on the budget which you have to work with as to how extravagant these changes may be, but with a bit of effort and planning and relatively low cost you will be able to transform the attic into one of the nicest rooms in your home.
One idea might be to remove a section of the roof, put in a window frame and windows to allow the sunlight in and already you have made a major difference to the attic, now how easy was that?
Put in some decent flooring and clean the place up nicely and now you really are getting somewhere. A few minor changes when it comes to attic remodelling are bound to make the world of difference. These need not be extravagant changes and are not likely to cost you much at all.
There are so many more ideas which may be used when it comes to attic remodelling and so many ways in which you will be able to make this a very unique and sought after room, after all, it will have the best view in the house.
As you now may see, creating more space in ones home need not be a costly or time consuming affair, all it requires is a bit of thought and perhaps a few fresh ideas.
