Next ask yourself are you up to taking on the challenge of a remodel or is it better for you to hire a contractor to ensure a smooth renovation. If you are the handyman type simple renovations can easily be done on your own and can save your contractor fees. If you are going to hire out a residential contractor make sure to look at examples of their previous work. Ask for references and check out their website. The detail put into their work, references and website will give you a good idea of their work and work ethic. It is also important to make sure your gut tells you that the contractor you have chosen is right for you and your home renovation.
The next is to confirm your suspicions. It may be that you don't need to do this if the problem is obvious - for example, if every time it rains you have a bath because the bath fills up from a leak in the ceiling, (a high-high issue in most people's books), a call to a roofer sooner rather than later would be in order. On the other hand, there might be issues which you are unsure of such as visible cracks in the brickwork possibly due to a sinking foundation. This would rate in the medium-high category where the likelihood is unknown but has some supporting evidence (the cracks), and the consequence is financially significant (the house falling down). In a case such as this, or whatever your case might be where you are unsure of the cause of an effect, it's time to consult with others. You may consider talking with family or friends who may have had similar issues, but this tends to leave more doubt as people's natural reaction is to guess and err on the negative side. It is much better to talk to an expert in the field you are concerned with - if it's the roof, talk to a roofer; the brickwork, talk to a stonemason; an electrical issue, an electrician. Go about the process as if you were intending to get have the work done (you may well have to) - get three quotes and therefore three separate opinions, and ask lots of questions. It may turn out that the cracks in the brickwork are merely superficial and become a high-low case, that is, the cracks are definitely there, but will cause no further problems. The low significance cases, regardless of the likelihood, are generally aesthetic and can be resolved at any future time you wish. As for low likelihood cases, they should, in general, not make it to your list.
Depending on where you live and the type of renovation you are doing, you may be required to have permits. Laws differ from country to country and even from one state or province to the next. Moreover, without proper permits, you may face problems when it comes to the sale of your home. Essentially, home buyers will want to be sure that all renovations are done according to building regulations.
