A renovation project can be a mighty big task to undergo. It can be a challenging experience but a highly rewarding one too. The feeling you can get from carrying out a project from start to finish and overcoming all the challenges and obstacles in your way and completing it successfully is like no other. Which is why, it’s very important that you are able handle the challenges and know what you are doing in order to overcome them. And with the size and scale of a renovation project, you will find yourself encountering a lot of challenges visible and hidden that will present themselves that you may feel unable to handle. Thus we have drafted this list of some of the challenges you may not expect to face and just how you may resolve them. So without further ado here is our list of some key challenges to consider when renovating your home
1. Building Surveys
Building surveys are a vital part of the renovation process. Building surveys help highlight any major flaws or issues there might be in the property. This may include new roof requirements, damp spots of weak building integrity, asbestos contamination, and more. These will cost, however, but given the expense of any given Renovation project, it will only be a small drop in the ocean. They can typically range anything from £500 to £1000 varying based on factors including property size, location, and the age of your house.
2. Scheduling is vital
The renovation process is long and often arduous work that needs to be completed over a period of time in order to be carried out effectively. You can’t rush in and do everything at once. Thus an organized and detailed schedule that you refer to constantly is absolutely vital to the process. Without it, the whole process will become immediately chaotic and steps will overlap and you will end up spending more than your intended budget. Many jobs are able to be taken care of at the same time which gives you the ability to save on money. So, therefore, we insist that you write everything down beforehand, and prepare for the entire project with a detailed plan so that you are able to foresee any potential setbacks or get ahead of things. Schedules are a routine part of any big job no matter what it is and so when it comes to your home why would you leave it all to chance
3. Waste removal
A large amount of waste is likely to amount during the process: building materials, old parts, scraps, and shrapnel. This is probably quite an obvious point but less obvious are the ways in which you dispose of said waste. You cannot simply leave your waste to pile up after you’ve renovated your nice new home. No, it is important to get on top of it and organize how you will deal with your waste before the job is completed. Skip hire is very important here as well as skip collection.
